Abstract The Scientific Data Management is a key aspect of the IT system of a user research facility like the MAX~IV Laboratory. By definition, this system handles data produced by the experimental user of such a facility. It could be perceived as easy as using an external hard drive to store the experimental data to carry back to the home institute for analysis. But on the other hand the "data" can be seen as more than just a file in a directory and the "management" not only a copy operation. Simplicity and a good User Experience vs security/authentication and reliability are among the main challenges of this project along with all the mindset changes. This article will explain all the concepts and the basic roll-out of the system at the MAX~IV Laboratory for the first users and the features anticipated in the future.
