"Given the fast pace of technological advancement, storing documents for decades can be costly and time consuming. LTA can future-proof the process."
Long-Term Archive is a software application for long-term digital preservation.
Long-Term Archive allows users to read, search and recover electronic documents and records over long periods of time (25+ years), no matter what technological changes have occurred. Long-term document management is a mounting problem for the Life Science sector, and with LTA organisations can reduce the cost of having to manage multiple business systems just to enable to read and access the content in case of legal or regulatory defence.
Long-Term Archive was developed in close consultation with the Swedish National Archives and is based on the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) model (ISO 14721:2003).
An Open Archival Information System (or OAIS) is an archive, consisting of an organization of people and systems, that has accepted the responsibility to preserve information and make it available for a Designated Community. The term OAIS also refers, by extension, to the ISO OAIS Reference Model for an OAIS. This reference model is defined by recommendation CCSDS 650.0-B-1 of the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems; this text is identical to ISO 14721:2003.
