CLaaS: CLARIAH-as-a-Service

Goal

The CLARIAH CORE infrastructure was developed in three separate work packages (language technology, semantic structured data technology, and audio-video technology) serving largely separate user communities and running on separate platforms. The most important intangible success during the course of the project was the establishment of trust among various partners. It took until the end of CLARIAH CORE for work package 2 and several centrally funded cross-discipline projects to achieve some success in bringing the technology of the three work packages together. This document is a plan for continuing the integration of the infrastructure development in CLARIAH PLUS, and to present it as a unified whole under the CLARIAH-as-a-Service (CLaaS) denominator.
