Durning yesterday's meeting, there was considerable discussion on the usefulness of Phase 8 Archiving, particularly in metadata-driven systems. At Statistics Canada, we have the concept of a data service centre layer in the business process model. A data service centre uses a common set of technologies and standards to store, organize and access statistical information as well as applying common information management practices.
One option to explore is to have an additional overarching "management" layer called Information Management of Statistical Information instead of Phase 8.
