Madrid, Spain and Tokyo, Japan, February 15, 2016. - NTT DATA, a global IT solutions provider, and its wholly owned subsidiary everis announced today that everis has been awarded a tender to develop a technological solution for digitally archiving some five million historical and artistic items managed by the National Heritage, a state institution responsible for conserving the legacy of the Spanish Crown. The two-year project will leverage NTT DATA’s digital archive solution - the Advanced Museum Library Archives Deposit (AMLADTM) - to efficiently integrate and manage collections hosted in five repositories of the National Heritage.
The commissioning reflects the National Heritage’s high evaluation of Spanish-based everis’ strong European business infrastructure as a multinational consultancy and NTT DATA’s digital archiving technologies.
AMLAD will serve as the centralized platform to process, store, manage and digitally archive some five million bibliographical and museum documents and related items, including art works, maps, musical scores, photographs, letters, manuscripts and files. NTT DATA has been demonstrating its digital archiving technologies in a similar project with the Vatican Apostolic Library that began in 2014.
AMLAD’s powerful metasearch engine will enable efficient search and retrieval of items stored at five repositories - Historical Archives of the Palace, Inventory of Historic and Artistic Property, Restoration, Palace photo archive, and Royal Library and the Royal Library at El Escorial - that will be interconnected through the project.
The project is being coordinated by the headquarters of the Royal Palace, everis’ Madrid office and NTT DATA’s headquarters in Tokyo from January 2016 to 2018. Technological optimization initially will allow National Heritage personnel to access the digitally archived collections, but eventually the public also will be have access.
Since 2014, NTT DATA has been participating in a project led by the Vatican Apostolic Library to digitally archive manuscripts totaling some 82,000 specimens and 41 million pages.
