D3.1: Operational SaaS Test lab

The aim of task 3.1 of the LoCloud project is to establish a cloud-based collaborative testing environment for tools and services in order to develop and test a number of key cloud-based micro-services (SaaS1) useful to smaller institutions in enriching their metadata and improving data quality for the benefit of Europeana's users.

The various cloud-based software services (geolocation services, vocabulary enrichment, metadata enrichment services etc.) should enable local heritage institutions to maker their content more discoverable and interoperable. The operational SaaS test lab described in this deliverable will provide the basis for a continuing process of participative testing and validation of each of the services and applications.
