This presentation gives an overview of the chronological development of research data management (RDM) at the University of Pretoria, the two surveys that were done, as well as the pilot projects that were run. The IT infrastructure that will be needed to address all the processes in the research data lifecycle is also highlighted. Three areas were identified that the IT infrastructure will need to make provision for. The 'research in process data', the 'dissemination of data', and 'preservation of data'. The last two slides sketches the key steps that will need to be taken to address the full scope of research data management at the institution.
