Dear TechTarget, I’m wondering if you are able to provide me with some guidance/white papers etc., relating to research I'm doing.
This research is for an MSc that I am currently studying at the Northumbria University in the UK, studying ‘Information and Records management’ under Professor Julie McLeod.
The key output from that MCs will be a dissertation discussing current thinking on digital continuity with a specific focus on the ‘long-term’ management of digital records that may be held ‘in the cloud’ for what may be many decades.
Here I intend approaching several UK government departments to ask the question of their intent/plans/requirements/perceptions for such a service (if even thought of) and thereafter present/discuss those findings within the dissertation. I am undertaking extensive research in relation to this subject, but I am unable to determine in literature research, to-date, what the current government approaches are to offloading their electronic records to the cloud to reduce their costs, risks liabilities, digital continuity etc., over such a protracted period of time.
So if possible I’d be most grateful if you were able to provide any relevant material on current thinking on this subject with any additional advice you may have being most welcome.
Looking forward to the reply.
