Nov. 18, 2010: We are pleased to announce that the Long-Term Digital Preservation Reference Model community website has been publicly launched and is available to access and join as of this date.
The objectives of launching a reference model for long-term retention and preservation is to address the gap in the datacenter. Current long-term retention and preservation practices are largely focused on addressing the digital library or governmental agency. It is time these practices get applied to the organization's business datacenter, yet the models of the library or agency don't adequately scope to the problem. This site is dedicated to developing, communicating, coordinating, and promoting a more scalable and robust LTDP model for the datacenter based on ILM2.0 concepts and practices.
www.LTDPRM.org is a companion site to www.ilm20.org, integrating the principles of ILM2.0 into a business process oriented around long-term retention and preservation practices.
CGOC recently published an important report on information governance, "Benchmark Report on Information Governance in Global 1000 Companies"
From the abstract: "This first-of-its-kind research revealed critical findings about information governance practices across global 1000 companies, including: 77% don't or can't systematically use their retention schedules; only 22% can routinely dispose of data today, yet 98% identify defensible disposal as their objective; and 85% cited poor collaboration as their biggest challenge..."
What I find interesting is that finally we have some data on the risk associated with failure to delete expired information and a strategy of "save everything, delete nothing." It is a topic we have been preaching on for years. (We meaning the ILM2.0 team) Here is an example of what this data means to a real customer case study. (Source: IBM's announcement of the acquisition of PSS.) Failure to establish retention management including permanent deletion of expired data and information leads to substantially greater operating and capital costs. Love the data in here. Put it to work.

And some more relevant data from the report:
- 77% don't or can't systematically use their retention schedules
- Only 22% can routinely dispose of data today, yet 98% identify defensible disposal as their objective
- 85% cited poor collaboration as their biggest challenge
We are beginning to draft the Reference Model and are looking for contributions and use cases. Here are some ideas of content that will be helpful:
- Use cases - of service management implementations, of design and service catalog development, of requirements plans, of SLAs, etc.
- Terminology needed
- Reference architectures and relevant models
- Functional requirements definitions
- Classification resources and guidelines
- Best practices
Please post this and similar content in the relevant sections and/or create new pages as needed.

TechNexxus and Application Matrix announce that the ILM2.0 reference model website has gone public and is now available for ILM practitioners, users, analysts, professional services consultants, and other interested parties may now contribute to defining ILM reference models on this site.
