WP11.9Final Report 28/02/2018
WP22.1Business Requirements and Business Cases' DefinitionsThis deliverable defines the business requirements industry partners have that will lead to the detailed construction of business case studies. A full usage description of how SSIX indexes will be implemented and used within a real world scenario will be provided in order to guide the development in WP4 and deployment and validation in WP5.31/08/2015
WP22.2Business Methodology DefinitionThis Deliverable describes the business methodology and business steps required by each partner for implementing and adopting the software developed by the SSIX consortium. While the software developed is intended to be as generic as possible, each industrial partner has very specific and unique commercial goals to pursue while using social sentiment analysis. Therefore, each partner has identified elements of their business process that are specific to their business needs which requires personalisation of SSIX platform.29/02/2016
WP33.1Data Requirement Analysis and Data Management Plan V1This document aims to provide a detailed overview of the platforms and techniques that can be used as data sources for the entire SSIX platform.
The document clearly lists all the public data available that can be retrieved and processed by the SSIX platform, along with the detailed results of the assessments performed on the identified data sources. This document will help to highlight important structural aspects of the platform and to identify all the criticalities that have to be taken into consideration when dealing with certain data collection techniques.

WP33.2Data Management Plan V2This deliverable contains the second version of the Data Management Plan, that is the document describing the data management lifecycle for all the data sets that will be collected, processed or generated by the SSIX project.31/08/2016
WP33.3Data Management Plan V3An updated version of the Data Management Plan (DMP), describing all the types of data that will be collected and stored during the project, how this should be recorded, stored and protected, in line with the ethical procedures and laws on data protection and what can be made publicly available for reuse by other parties through the Pilot on Open Research Data in Horizon 2020.28/02/2017
WP33.7Data Streams documentationThis deliverable contains the technical documentation of the Streaming APIs defined and implemented in WP3 - Data Management; needed to send data to the provided clients and retrieve data from the data ingestion infrastructure.
As the project is still in a development phase, the current target of this document are the technical partners of the consortium, which are connecting to the endpoint to source data for the NLP Pipeline in WP4 - and dashboard in WP5. In the future, once software releases of the SSIX platform are initiated, other actors may need to access the data APIs; hence the need to have an official technical documentation that can be consulted by future users of the whole infrastructure.
