“By taking a new approach to how you archive, maintain and manage your data you can deliver organisational cost saving and preserve your data easily and efficiently. Learn more about how Long Term Archive can help you now and in the future.”

A new approach to digital data preservation

At Formpipe Life Science we understand the importance of archiving and digital data preservation within the Life Science sector and other highly regulated industries.

As an example of our commitment to data integrity, data quality and data preservation we are delighted to support the Digital Preservation Coalition who are committed to ensuring best practice in data preservation and helping organisations to be best placed for future technology changes.

So why is archiving and data preservation important? Often organisations take a traditional approach to maintaining data integrity which means they often have legacy systems and complex solutions that increasingly mean poor organisational efficiency and increased costs.

As part of the Formpipe organisation we can now offer a solution to the long term data preservation problems Life Science companies are experiencing through the use of Long Term Archive.

What is Long Term Archive?

LTA is a preservation platform that allows for the archiving and retrieval of digital information over time, whilst retaining the original integrity of the content. It allows for easy search and retrieval of records from a huge number of starting digital formats. The system is designed in such a way that it allows compliant record retention, permission access, confidentiality, data spoliation and destruction with full audit trail guaranteed for up to 50 years.

It is a proven technology used by many organisations to enable efficiencies for archiving and ultimately cost savings.

Key Benefits

  • Reduce operational costs - with LTA you can retire archaic and outdated systems that you currently maintain whilst improving organisational performance.

  • Find it Fast - industry leading Elastic search results in the easy search and retrieval of single or batch records from a huge number of starting digital formats.

  • Achieve GDPR compliance - Long Term Archive is GDPR compliant, future proof and delivers long term digital preservation of your data.

Use LTA to deliver cost savings?

When it comes to data preservation challenges to Life Science organisations and other industries the need to address compliance means that existing systems need to be assessed and processes put in place to be compliant.

This is even more complex when it comes to old systems that are still required to store data that needs to be accessed. Resolving these issues mean that increased operational costs and inefficiencies are encountered. A problem that is going to grow as changes within the future technology landscape presents increasing challenges to organisations.

“By 2020, 50% of all current applications in the data centre will be retired but certain data needs to be preserved”
