#WeMissiPRES (online)

22 - 24 Sep 2020

This year there is no iPres or other large-scale face to face conference focusing on digital preservation to look forward to, but this should not stop us from exchanging work in progress and experiences with each other!

Join for three days of online iPres celebrations in September, including a mix of presentations, lightning talks, panels, and participant interaction, all supported by social and networking opportunities.

Don't miss Preservica's Chief Innovation Officer, Jon Tilbury as he shares insights into the successful decommissioning of LotusNotes at The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).

Tuesday September 22nd from 12.55pm CEST

'Decommissioning by the millions – a DHSC case study'

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) were faced with the challenge of keeping control of critical records during a decommissioning project, moving 50 million documents from a well-structured records management system all whilst ensuring information continued to flow.

This session will explore how using an extract, transform, load (ETL) process DHSC successfully navigated the decommissioning of LotusNotes and reduced dependency on customised applications, securely moving documents into the cloud and assuring long-term preservation of vital records to meet compliance with FOI Requests and Public Record Acts for long-term retention and data transfer.
