Can someone tell me if the Artifactual team gives demonstrations about Archivematica? I have seen the demos on YouTube. Our archives uses AtoM for cataloging and providing access to its members. Some of the administrators of our organization are looking into Preservica as an option for digital preservation. I understand that Preservica is not compatible with AtoM. That worries me. Also the cost for Preservica would be a monthly stain on our budget, something like $1,000 a month. We have IT staff and DBAs that installed, and manage, and upgrade AtoM. It has turned out to be very reliable and we have had no problems. Could that same IT staff install and manage Archivematica? Would Archivematica require more IT maintenance than AtoM? We use AWS as our web provider for AtoM and the cost is minimal, less than $25 a month. We are a small archive. Would the Archivematica platform be more expensive than a small to midsize archive database on AWS?
Thank you for your response,
