Data is everywhere, management is key
Electronic information can sit within your organisation’s data ecosystem for years without you having any knowledge of its format or accessibility. Often, the file types have not been standardised and the software previously used to access them may have been superseded. Not only can this create significant disruption to your working practices when you require older files, it means you don’t have oversight to what’s housed on your servers.
Data preservation services bring all that data and associated files into up to date formats. We’ll look at all the software, data types and file types you’ve been using over a period and establish a data preservation plan to convert all your unopenable files into new, accessible formats.
