Archivematica is a digital preservation system that automates the process of preparing digital objects for ingest into a repository, ingesting them into archival storage and providing access to the archived material. The process is monitored and controlled through a Web-based dashboard that co-ordinates a suite of micro-services. It primarily relies on normalisation as its preservation technique.

ArchivesSpace is an archives information management application for managing both physical and digital archival holdings.

CKAN is a catalogue and repository platform tailored for publishing datasets.

ICA-AtoM allows organisations to create standards-based descriptions of their archival holdings and subsequently publish them to the World Wide Web.

The Nesstar suite is an online publishing platform for organisations wishing to share datasets both internally and with the wider web.
