Distributed information access in New Zealand
Nicholls, Howard; Gibb, Robert
The purpose of this document is to describe the key technology issues for distributed information access in New Zealand. It is written from an industrial and public sector perspective, representing the views and findings of a wide cross-section of institutions in public and private sectors. It is an output of Objective 2 of the Distributed Information Systems project funded under contract UO0621 by the New Zealand Foundation for Research, Science and Technology (FRST). It complements other project material produced by the academic research team at the University of Otago and its collaborators. It focuses on requirements and applications, and is intended to provide a real-world, New Zealand-oriented context for the research in distributed information technologies (DIST). The report represents the culmination of a series of workshops, industrial consultations, a questionnaire, and the experiences of the authors' institutions during the project, and therefore it supplements any previously produced material.
