Abstract:


Digital Preservation, often seen as information management
with a long-term mission, is recognized as an independent
research area, but the fieldĀ“s maturity is still evolving.
Reference models and compliance criteria for archival
systems are being developed, but the more general
perspective of Governance, Risk and Compliance has yet to
be fully considered. In particular, Digital Preservation can
take advantage of the powerful tools for structuring
processes to exercise control, assign responsibilities, and
quantify goal achievements, provided by IT Governance.
This paper presents an integrated vision for Digital
Preservation that aligns key organizational preservation
processes with a leading framework for IT Governance.
Based on a high-level capability model, we define control
objectives for core Digital Preservation processes, present a
reference assignment of responsibilities and accountabilities
to typical Digital Preservation stakeholders, and discuss a
maturity model for Digital Preservation processes. The
resulting processes are related to key IT Governance
processes. This integrated process model enables
organizations with a long-term vision on the value of digital
information to sustain and govern their Digital Preservation
activities.
