Preservica is in the digital preservation business. They recently became a ‘supporter’ of the Information Governance Initiative (IGI), and will join forces with the think tank for a quantitative research project to benchmark the unique challenge of protecting long-term digital records. This interesting news came to us from Real Wire in their release, “Preservica joins the Information Governance Initiative to support preservation of long-term digital records.”

The IGI is supported by a number of leading information governance providers, and seeks to promote the adoption of information governance strategies in the protection of corporate data. This new partnership demonstrates the growing importance of digital preservation in the overall information governance lifecycle.

Digital content and records are at serious risk of being lost forever as the hardware and software within which they are stored becomes obsolete. Digital preservation technology is fundamental to ensuring that data is findable, useable and trustworthy long into the future.

It is important in digital data to provide consistency. Standards provide consistency. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
