Crown Records Management partners with Preservica to help preserve digital records

Apr 25, 2017

Crown Records Management has partnered with Preservica to help organisations ensure vital long-term digital records remain accessible into the future

As technology moves forwards at a faster and faster pace, businesses are being warned there is a serious risk of stored digital data becoming unreadable in the next decade. That’s why Crown Records Management has selected digital preservation specialist, Preservica, as its partner to help businesses safeguard their digital records and ensure they are accessible over the long term.

“There is a vast and growing amount of digital information that organisations across all sectors need to keep long-term for compliance, regulatory, legal and business value reasons,” said Dominic Johnstone, Head of Information Management Services at Crown Records Management. In his opinion businesses are beginning to wake up to the reality that much of this information is at risk of becoming unusable over time due to technology and software obsolescence. “Formats such as Lotus 1-2-3 and Wordstar are already obsolete, and Word Perfect and .MOV are in real danger of being unreadable in the near future, even though these formats were incredibly widespread just a few years ago.”

Crown Records Management and Preservica are running a series of educational webinars on digital archiving and preservation over the coming months.
