“Supply Side” Digital Preservation

“Supply Side” Digital Preservation by Butch Lazorchak

Most people working with digital information are on the “supply side.” You know, the beginning of the digital information lifecycle where you create and “supply” great stuff like photos, music, TPS reports and the like. In fact, most people are on the supply side. The technology consulting firm IDC noted in their Extracting Value from Chaos report (PDF) that 75% of the information in the digital universe is generated by individuals.

But they also offered the sobering thought that less than a third of the information being created has at least minimal security or protection, and only about half the information that should be protected is protected.
