Title: Upgrading? Migrating? There’s a portmanteau for that!

Abstract: Fedora 4, the new, revitalized version of Fedora, boasts a feature set that includes improvements in scalability, linked data capabilities, research data support, modularity, and more. Since the launch of Fedora 4.0, a number of institutions have begun the process of upgrading their existing Fedora 3 repositories to Fedora 4 and migrating their content (thus the portmanteau "upgration"). Upgration will be different for every institution, but the common thread is the wealth of new opportunities Fedora 4 provides, both in terms of data modeling and application integrations.

This presentation will focus on planning a move to a new repository platform and the opportunities provided by the new Fedora 4 feature set. In particular, the Linked Data Platform implementation provides some exciting capabilities for enhancing metadata and building semantic relationships between objects both within the repository and on the open web. By engaging in upgration projects now, the panelists are making sure their use cases are supported, as well as paving the way for full scale migrations later this year. Attendees considering their own upgration projects will have a chance to learn from the experience of the speakers and get excited about the new opportunities provided by Fedora 4.
