Digital Provenance Symposium at CMOA November 6, 2017 At the 2017 Digital Provenance Symposium, hosted by the Carnegie Museum of Art, Elizabeth Gorayeb and Caitlin Sweeney shared the WPI’s vision to build an integrated digital archival and cataloguing platform and to publish dynamic online catalogues raisonnés. The WPI tech platform is supported by HANA, the relational database management system developed by one of our founders, Hasso Plattner, and the German company SAP. This tool will enable us to store large amounts of data, access digitized material at high speed, and in turn, make meaningful connections between objects and the plethora of resources that inform their history and significance.
