D18.2 SCAPE final evaluation and methodology report

This report presents the results of the Evaluation of Results work package (TB.WP.4), as a part of the testbeds in the SCAPE project. In this work package, we have developed a structured and systematic evaluation methodology based on goals, objectives, metrics and evaluation through experiments coupled to SCAPE-defined user stories.
The evaluations carried out in the SCAPE project show that the tools, components, workflows, applications and platform, developed within the project scope, have added tremendous value to the digital preservation environment and community. Now, it is possible to create scalable solutions, which are able to handle very large amount of data, and the processing time can therefore be reduced to days or weeks instead of months or years.
