History Associates partners with Preservica to provide a one-stop solution for long-term digital archive programs
Organizations now have a world-class, one-stop solution for planning, implementing, and sustaining long-term digital archive programs. Digital preservation market leader, Preservica, and History Associates, have announced an exciting new partnership.
The new partnership provides a comprehensive solution for customers who are looking for archives planning and support seamlessly integrated with a digital preservation platform. Preservica provides robust and secure preservation storage as well as long-term access through its active preservation capabilities. The software automatically migrates stored files to newer formats that can be read and used by future generations. Combined with History Associates’ skills and expertise in archival science, data migration, and project planning, clients will be confident in their ability to identify, organize, and preserve their digital material and ensure that it is accessible into the future.
“Many organizations that are developing a long-term digital preservation program need guidance on how to integrate the technology into their existing archives program and optimize its use to best suit their needs,” said Moira Edwards, VP Channels and Alliances at Preservica, adding, “We are pleased to announce our partnership with History Associates, as they can offer clients that expertise.”
“Many of our clients at cultural institutions are looking for robust digital preservation solutions that enable broader access, secure storage, and – critically – ensure long-term preservation of digital material,” added Mark Evans, VP of Archives and Collections Management at History Associates. “We have already had successful collaborations with Preservica and look forward to our continued partnership,” he said, referring to a successful project that combined a Preservica implementation with program consulting for The Trustees of Massachusetts.
Preservica and History Associates will be at PASIG 2019 in Mexico City, February 12th – 14th. Meet up with our teams on site to discuss your long-term digital archive requirements, and be sure to attend our workshop ‘Digital Preservation : 2030’.
