The integration of grid, data grid, digital library, and preservation technology has resulted in software infrastructure that is uniquely suited to the generation and management of data. Grids provide support for the organization, management, and application of processes. Data grids manage the resulting digital entities. Digital libraries provide support for the management of information associated with the digital entities. Persistent archives provide long-term preservation. We examine the synergies between these data management systems and the future evolution that is required for the generation and management of information.
