PAWN is a mature software platform that is extremely flexible in implementing centralized and distributed ingestion and processing workflows. It is built on an infrastructure-independent scalable, secure, and reliable architecture.
PAWN was designed to handle the ingest process from producer-archive agreement through final publishing of objects in long term repository. To support this part of an objects lifecycle, PAWN provides the following functionality:
- Organization of all possible data types into easy to use templates used to create packages
- A mechanism for collecting item level approval and reject marks as well as a way of specifying which marks are required.
- A mechanism to allow users to have customizable roles rather than locking users into predefined roles.
- Allow automated and manual process chains to be defined and executed on data in PAWN. In addition, allow these chains to be customized depending on record set and template requirements.
- Through domains, different producer-archive agreements may be specified and operate independently on the same software infrastructure.
