The Development of Remote Access Systems

Presenter 1
Tanvi Desai
Research Laboratory, London School of Economics

The paper will outline the history of the development of remote access systems, in particular for access to microdata. I will then look at the types of remote access solution in use today by various data providers internationally and assess the strengths and weaknesses in each. Strengths and weaknesses will be judged primarily in terms of ease of use, data quality, data accessibility, data security, and support burden on the data provider.
