Preservation of IT documents is a process based on technological standards and procedures to ensure authenticity, integrity, reliability, legibility and availability of IT documents.

Are preservation and archiving the same thing?…NO


Electronic archiving is an activity that allows the storage of a document on a computer medium (similar to classic archiving with the only difference that a different medium is used, due to the different nature of the document).


Digital preservation is a standardized process that can ensure authenticity, integrity, reliability, legibility and availability to an IT document.
The historical memory of the information is preserved and it is not “simply” archived, but its full legal validity and constant usability over time is ensured.
