Under the Act, the public authority that owns the system to be archived IT must pay all costs associated with the creation of the archival version. The archival version is usually created by an IT vendor.
The Database Preservation Toolkit pulls the data from an agency’s running IT system and packages it into the archival format specified by National Archives, namely Executive Order 1007 on Archival Versions.
Along with National Archives, Magenta contributed to the development of the tool and therefore has special insight into how it works. Magenta also continuously contributes to the further development of Database Preservation Toolkit.
Magenta also has special archival expertise in relation to the creation of the archival version and can advise authorities in this respect, both from a technical and archival point of view.

Clearing the monopoly from public view
The Framework Architecture introduces standards, open interfaces and a loosely coupled IT architecture. This is a prerequisite for eliminating dependencies on specific providers.
The framework architecture can make various processes and workflows redundant or automated by reusing data between systems.
Magenta has implemented Framework Architecture (Local Framework Architecture or LoRa), which is used in several communities for different purposes.
Why choose Frame Architecture?
Provides the ability to replace systems and vendors by eliminating technology dependencies.
Allows IT systems to communicate with each other and share data
Ensures that you only need to enter data once
Synchronizes data between different systems.
