LAC content & archive services

Spanning the digital and physical assets

There’s a lot of talk about big data, but not much on big content, though YouTube alone gains a few hundred hours of new footage every minute.

And today’s enterprise is grappling with its own big content challenges, because even though physical and virtual storage options are plentiful and relatively cheap, neither are infinite. To manage the information contained within both your digital and physical content, turn to LAC Group.

Enterprise content needs go beyond storage

  • What digital files contain and how to make information easily accessible while ensuring some of it remains unavailable.
  • Whether to integrate-and-preserve or digitize-and-destroy your analog content captured on paper, tape or film.
  • Curation decisions for lifecycle management that consider historical, legal and monetary needs and goals.

Comprehensive content services, from creation to archive

Our services are available for the entire content lifecycle, from cradle to grave. From needs assessment to roadmapping and planning to preparation for both easy availability and long-term preservation. We’ll help you design and build a solid foundation for all your enterprise content.

Library science principles and disciplines

As digital information management becomes much greater than an IT concern, library science is getting the recognition it deserves. LAC Group is part of our “information management as a service” approach, based on 30 years of library and information center experience and expertise.

When system-generated metadata and other IT-centric solutions are no longer enough for your enterprise content goals and objectives, turn to our services. We deliver the information management expertise you need, when you need it.
