D12.1 Preservation Watch Component Architecture

This report describes the concepts of Automated Watch. It analyses the baseline of preservation planning and monitoring in reference models and in the background of the project, and it specifies the capabilities required for automated preservation watch. Based on an analysis of drivers that need to be monitored, it describes the range of triggers that should lead to preservation planning and action activities. It categorises these triggers and develops a Watch component architecture, breaking down the design of the Watch component into its constituent subcomponents. The report further describes the data model and based on this discusses key design decisions for the development of the Watch component. It thus provides the necessary fundamental design for the Watch component to be developed.
