With the LTS release (v9) and the latest release (v10), InvenioRDM has reached the maturity needed for production-ready digital repository websites. InvenioRDM is a generic data management repository, developed by our team in collaboration with many partners all over the world. Free to use and open-source.

The InvenioRDM demo website.

As already done by several partners (e.g. Caltech University, TU Graz University, TU Wien University), our team worked hard to create a preview version of the future CDS, available at https://sandbox-cds-rdm.web.cern.ch.

The new CDS website, based on InvenioRDM.

As first milestone, we have created and deployed the new instance of CDS and also migrated a selected set of records, metadata-only. This initial setup will allow us to iterate with the process of data migration, expanding incrementally the number of records and improving the data quality.

In the first quarter of this year, we will continue working on the InvenioRDM product, adding more features and integrating them in the new CDS website.

We will also start an analysis of the feature-set available in the current CDS, but still missing in the new platform: thanks to this, we will be able to come up with a plan for the next steps.

We are very excited to finally see the new CDS taking shape! Stay tuned for future announcements!
