Ideally this would be a tool or toolset that facilitates saving and organizing data as it is collected/generated, with the provision for some minimal set of metadata, but well before the data set is moved to an institutional repository (IR). Most of the resources I've been able to locate are focused on IR applications, which are not optimized to the application I need.
