Data Management Lifecycle and Software Lifecycle Management in the Context of Conducting Science

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

This paper examines the potential for comparisons of digital science data curation lifecycles to software lifecycle development to provide insight into promoting sustainable science software. The goal of this paper is to start a dialog examining the commonalities, connections, and potential complementarities between the data lifecycle and the software lifecycle in support of sustainable software. We argue, based on this initial survey, delving more deeply into the connections between data lifecycle approaches and software development lifecycles will enhance both in support of science.
