Etelä-Savon tietohallinto Oy (ESTH) and Fujitsu Services Oy have entered into an agreement on the foundation of an electronic archiving competence and service centre (SARKK). ESTH will lead the project while Fujitsu will both implement the archiving project and subsequently manage its operation through SaaS cloud service (Software as a Service).
The SARKK archive will be built on the EMC Documentum solution and it is slated to be up and running in the first quarter of the year 2012. In addition to the local governments in Finland, ESTH will offer the solution to joint municipal boards and local government-owned companies.
An abundance of different documents is archived in the Finnish local governments every day. In many of them, this is still done with printouts, manually. A centralised, electronic SARKK archive is a solution for storing local government materials on long-term and permanent basis. It offers a secure and easy way to fulfil the archiving obligation. This comprehensive solution covers the entire lifecycle of the material from reception to appropriate destruction.
”In our procurement decision we in particular emphasised availability and information security, in other words, the reliability of access and permissions management. We paid attention to retaining the availability and independent intelligibility of the materials regardless of the changing file formats and software and technology generations. Fujitsu put out a solid bid that met our expectations in terms of quality and overall costs,” project director Katariina Ryhänen of ESTH said.
The SARKK project was launched in April 2011, and the first services will be deployed in the first quarter of the year 2012.
