2019 Community Workshop

The New .Stat Suite – ‘From idea to reality’

17-19 June, 2019 – Paris, France

The SIS Collaboration Community workshop is in its 9th year and continues to go from strength to strength with a greater demand and increased importance of the collaboration on statistical activities between statistical organisations, both at national and international levels.

At this year’s workshop the Community will officially launch, in open source, the .Stat Suite product, a native SDMX modular set of components that aims to progressively cover the full data lifecycle (GSBPM: Design; Collect; Process; Analyse; Disseminate).

The first two and a half days, as with the previous workshops (held in March 2011March 2012April 2013April 2014March 2015April 2016April 2017 and April 2018), are open sessions and the OECD extends the invitation to interested groups and organisations who may be considering using .Stat Suite for their own organisation, interested in becoming part of and contributing to the open source community, and those who share similar objectives.

Day 1 (17 June), will be hosted at the OECD Conference Centre in the Boulogne Building, 46 Quai Alphonse le Gallo, 92100 Boulogne-Billancourt, France, from 1.30pm to 6pm. Days 2 and 3 (18-19 June), to take place at Station F, the largest start-up hub in the world and the center for the French Government push to make France the global leader in tech and innovation. A fitting location for the launch of the .Stat Suite!

The two and half days will include:

Showcasing a number of .Stat Suite projects aligned to our four principles.

A capacity stream for Data Producers covering new approaches to Data Modelling, a design thinking workshop looking at current state and target for both the .Stat Data Explorer and .Stat Data Lifecycle Manager, different scenarios for migrating to the .Stat Suite (including .Stat v7), and one full day basecamp where participants will get hands-on to model and disseminate SDG indicators in the .Stat Suite.

A capacity stream for Data Toolers providing an introduction to the .Stat Suite Open Source Framework, a look at the different deployment options available for the .Stat Suite, an overview of the .Stat Suite Architecture, how to get started with the SDMX Source project, optimising Solr (Search engine), and one full day basecamp where participants will spend the day going through an A-Z exercise to: explore, design, and configure .Stat Suite As a Service.
