Latvia picks technology partners for national archive

Share this on social media:

The National Archives of Latvia has selected local supplier Tieto and Tessella to deliver its national digital archive.

The National Archives of Latvia accumulate and store records with archival value, provide accessibility of these records, supervise the observance of records management in institutions and accredited private archives and performs other functions specified in the country's Archives Law. According to Reinis Grîgs, a senior expert from National Archives of Latvia: 'Tessella’s Preservica SDB is the perfect choice for the National Archives of Latvia and we are excited to be working with Tessella and Tieto.'

Tessella’s Preservica SDB was developed out of work done in partnership with the UK National Archives to help confront the problem of digital preservation. The software has already been in use at The National Archives (in the UK) for over eight years, as well as in several other national archives.
