Digital preservation specialist becomes first to partner with the DPC on new initiative designed to foster closer collaboration between solution providers and DPC members
The DPC Commercial Support Programme was born from the need for a collaborative environment where solution providers and members can share industry insight and learn from one another, whilst maintaining vendor neutrality.
“This new programme was launched to facilitate better and more meaningful communication between members and solution providers on ‘neutral’ ground, and to drive awareness across what is already a rapidly growing industry that will expand in 2017 and beyond” explained Chair of the DPC and Deputy Keeper of the Records of Scotland, Laura Mitchell. “We are delighted that Preservica is the first supporter to join the new programme and welcome the insights and opportunity to collaborate this will provide.”
“We are excited to be the first to join the DPC in this new initiative” said Mike Quinn, CEO, Preservica “Many of our users are already members of the DPC, so it made perfect sense to support a programme that promotes closer collaboration and has the shared aim of developing best-practice and raising wider industry awareness of the importance of digital preservation.”
Any commercial organisation may apply for DPC Supporter status. In return, these organisations will be invited to actively participate in and extend the Coalition activities. Supporters also receive early access to DPC Technology Watch Reports, an invitation to an annual trade fare and horizon scanning meeting with DPC members, as well as the opportunity to showcase products and services through webinars and relevant briefing days.
