Why digitize your data

Escape the status quo.  Do you have paper records, archival materials and other media to transform into modern file formats? Need any help selecting digitization or digital preservation? Ovation’s expert team will guide you in determining the best option to fit your specific needs.

Here are a few reasons why NOW is the time to make a change:

Fulfill your stewardship mission

The Society of American Archivists Digital defines stewardship as the management of digital objects throughout their lifecycle to facilitate their long-term preservation and use. Many leading institutions regard digital stewardship as critical to their mission, and have launched digital transformation initiatives. Ovation’s experts help guide this process.

Protect legacy materials that are now at risk

Fires, floods, and other weather-related events cause important institutions to lose heritage materials that have not been digitally preserved. Let Ovation’s expert team determine an action plan to safeguard and steward your paper, archival materials, and media currently at risk in storage.

Free up storage space

If you are using office space and other valuable real estate to store paper records, archival materials, and other media, we have a better way. Ovation will customize a digital preservation plan to guide your team in transforming heritage legacy into modern file formats.

Tell new stories through digital preservation

Many organizations have amazing stories trapped in legacy materials at risk of degradation over time due to storage conditions. A structured plan of digitization or digital preservation from Ovation will safeguard your materials in actionable formats so those stories can see the light of day.
