Press release

New version of Preservica aligns records management and digital preservation

Preservica 5.2 now includes connectors for Microsoft SharePoint and Outlook to enable organizations to automate the challenge of ensuring their vital long term and permanent electronic records are secure, accessible and readable for decades into the future.

Washington DC, US and Oxford, UK | Nov 05 2014 | Preservica, part of the Tessella group, and a world leader in digital preservation technology, research and consulting, has announced a series of new connectors that make it easy for records managers to securely preserve Microsoft SharePoint content and Microsoft Outlook email and attachments for the long-term.

The announcement is part of a broader roadmap and strategy to enable government and business organizations to integrate Enterprise Content Management (ECM) with Digital Preservation in order to improve Information Governance across the full lifecycle and eliminate the risk that vital digital records will be unreadable when required — due to technology and file format obsolescence.

Jon Tilbury, CEO Preservica adds: The growing volume and diversity of digital content and records along with rapid technology and IT refresh rates is fuelling the need for Records and Compliance managers to properly safe-guard their long-term and permanent digital records by incorporating Digital Preservation into their overall information governance lifecycle. The developing consensus is that organizations should consider digital preservation from the outset – especially if they hold important digital records for more than 10 years or already have records that are older than 10 years. Our vision is to make this a pluggable technology so it can be quickly and seamlessly integrated into the corporate information landscape.”

All Preservica Editions (cloud and on premise/​hybrid) include the new SharePoint and Outlook connectors, as well as a new connector for CONTENTdm, and are available to existing Preservica customers through their regular maintenance and update program.
