New AIIM research to investigate the value of long-term digital preservation to business

Active digital preservation specialist, Preservica, has joined forces with AIIM to research how the management of long-term digital information impacts an organization’s ability to mitigate compliance risk and create business value.

The research will investigate whether traditional IT approaches to keeping vital long-term digital information, such as back-up and archiving, are slowing an organization’s ability to use information intelligently in order to drive innovation, create competitive advantage, and meet privacy, regulatory and legal requirements in a timely way.

Many organizations are beginning to adopt technologies such as digital preservation to better manage long-term digital information and ensure it is securely accessible, re-useable and trustworthy over decades.

John Mancini, Chief Evangelist at AIIM comments “The value and benefits of digital preservation are well understood by the culture and heritage community, so as we begin to see adoption of this type of technology in the commercial world it is important to understand the ways that businesses are looking to consume and re-use long-term information to create value and mitigate risk”

Mike Quinn, CEO at Preservica commented "We look forward to working with the AIIM community to research how organizations are meeting the challenge of ensuring long-term and permanent digital information is future-proofed and immediately accessible over decades"
