Repository System


A repository is a central place in which an aggregation of data is kept and maintained in an organized way, usually in computer storage. Generically refers to a central place where data is stored and maintained.

A repository can be a place where multiple databases or files are located for distribution over a network, or a repository can be a location that is directly accessible to the user without having to travel across a network.

Common integration points for repository systems:


    • Collect authors’ iDs and biographical information


    • Display iDs within your repository system


    • Connect research output information to researchers’ records


    • Synchronize your researchers’ records with your system


    • Take your system one step further


Benefits and Features


    • Significantly reduced number of downloads off remote repositories, saving time and bandwidth resulting in increased build performance


    • Improved build stability due to reduced reliance on external repositories


    • Increased performance for interaction with remote SNAPSHOT repositories


    • Potential for control of consumed and provided artifacts


    • Creates a central storage and access to artifacts and meta data about them exposing build outputs to consumer such as other projects and developers, but also QA or operations teams or even customers


    • Provides an effective platform for exchanging binary artifacts within your organization and beyond without the need for building artifact from source
