Some of the world’s most prestigious collections work with Arkivum to manage their digital preservation and long-term data archiving requirements

Digital Preservation can sometimes seem more of an art than a science, how can preservation be automated in the real world?

Webinar Recording

Automation in digital preservation can sometimes be a controversial subject. How can we really automate such an imperfect and complicated process as digital preservation?

Following our recent panel session at the Society of American Archivists’ annual meeting, Dr Matthew Addis hosted a webinar to share his thoughts on the subject and exploring how preservation can be automated in the real world.

Top performing organisations trust Arkivum to manage their complex long-term data requirements

Arkivum Perpetua safeguards and preserves your valuable content for the long-term, bringing it to life by making it easily accessible and searchable for when you need it.

Museums, Galleries and Archives

The heritage industry has a big job on their hands to preserve history for future generations to access. Digitised assets need to be easily searchable and usable to create business value and digitised files need to be protected forever. Born-digital assets create a particular problem with evolving technology and long-term access, as software tools and applications are constantly evolving and being updated, which means there is often no guarantee for how long you can access your resources. Arkivum Perpetua addresses this issue by combining our fully managed service with Open Source software to ensure long-term access to your digital collections while guaranteeing 100% data integrity and the peace of mind of an out of the box solution.
