Open source platform Dataverse takes on the challenge of making research data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable. Started by Harvard University's Institute for Quantitative Social Science, the platform has grown to include 20 installations with data from over 500 institutions.

The talk will focus on the Dataverse's evolving architecture including topics such as:
- extracting and sharing metadata
- handling streaming data
- exposing datasets to cloud computing tools
