Abstract [en]

Legacy file formats is an increasing concern for organisations. Therefore it is important for any company to develop sustainable strategies for data curation in order to maintain valuable digital assets. In this paper we report from a case study conducted in a company context aiming to investigate the feasibility of using Open Source approaches for curation of corporate digital assets kept in proprietary legacy file formats to open file formats. We consider different aspects of openness in a corporate strategy for maintaining digital assets. An important aspect concerns activity and company influence in an Open Source tool-chain, another concerns support for data curation of digital assets actually offered by the tool chain. We find that organisational concern over legacy file formats continues to be an issue, and that strong commercial influence on Open Source projects is no guarantee for success.
