Digital Preservation Best Practice

The Chosen Ones

We're a lucky bunch at Formpipe, not only do we have a talented team of software developers, architects and delivery teams, but our products are also proven in the most digitized society in Europe, Sweden.


Take a look back over ten years in time and you will see Long-Term Archive developed to meet preservation requirements of the Swedish Public Sector. This major milestone resulted in our product being a robust and well used application with all the tools, functions and controls anyone could wish for in a preservation platform.

Tried and Tested Methods

We have then taken the product and these principles to the Private Sector and introduced the methods that ensure long term compliance coupled with the ability to significantly reduce ongoing storage costs. With our unique migration tool we also deliver an ingestion solution that removes the burden from the client, making the preservation project a reality  


Here's How

Due to the Public Sector preservation demands, Long Term archive is a feature rich and comprehensive product, features include; 

Flexible permission structure 

Permissions can be set against Users, Groups, Archives, Search criteria, object types and individual objects. However complex or bespoke you believe your permission requirements are, we can meet them through the configuration of the permissions within Long Term Archive. 


Data Management Rules 

We understand that preservation is an active discipline completely different from putting a physical archive box into deep storage. Our data management rules allow objects or groups of objects to be applied to preservation workflows. Files can be upgraded to ensure they are using the most recent file format and critically files and their associated metadata can be deleted in a controlled manner, producing a demonstrable log in the process.    

OAIS method 

Both the product and our projects are underpinned by the open-source OAIS methodology, ISO14721 and ISO15489. Following these widely accepted long term preservation methods is how we can assure that your files and objects will be easily retrievable in a comprehensive and timely manner and crucially in a human-readable format. 

Our Digital Preservation best practice puts Formpipe & Long term archive at the forefront of an ever-increasing market. If you would like to learn more about digital best practice, please contact ben.saxton@formpipe.com
