Omnes is the ultimate solution for archiving, searching and managing long-term data and content. Its advanced technology platform allows you to recover any data and manage their features in the future. This platform is the result of scientific cooperation with the Vatican Library, ESA(European Space Agency), IAU (International Astronomical Union) and INAF (National Institute for Astrophysics).
The document and information solution complies with current Standards and ensures interoperability with all actors who manage information, data, content, and documents. The loss of information and data represents today the main risk factor against which we need to protect ourselves. The means of access to information must ensure its availability and accessibility over time.
The purpose of long-term document preservation is to maintain accessibility, that is, the ability to access full content over time and Omnes represents the technological and methodological response for businesses, organizations, and entities.
“Knowledge” is based on the processing of data and information. Managing and preserving knowledge means taking care of content and documents, whether digital or analogue. Omnes is the innovative solution for long-term preservation of content based on Flexible Image Transport System (FITS) format that ensures accessibility and self-consistency of data-content-documents. The FITS standard format allows you to preserve data in binary code by defining the data DNA and its preservation. The Data Management Platform, allowing Digital Preservation through Value Digitization Processes, uses Dublin Core metadata systems and complies with the PREMIS and OAIS Standards (ISO 14721: 2012). Omnes is able to archive, search and manage any type of document in the Enterprise, Government & Heritage sectors and ensures digital continuity of any content or document over time.
Flexible Image Transport System: a digital file format for storing, transmitting, and processing scientific images. Conceived in the astronomical field, the format is managed by the IAU (International Astronomical Union) FITS Working Group and embodies all the features for long-term file preservation.
It allows overcoming the critical features of technological obsolescence, being open standard. Files in FITS format consist of two distinct sections: the first contains text elements (metadata in ASCII format) and the second data in binary format.
It allows managing the information necessary to ensure the conservation, accessibility, intelligibility and authenticity of digital resources according to the ISO Standard. It overcomes the criticality of technological obsolescence.
The fundamental guidelines for digital preservation and essential definitions, designed to provide stability and consistency, including as regards terminology, to the conservation of digital objects of any nature.
A metadata system consisting of a core of essential elements for the purpose of describing any digital material accessed through an IT network.
The METS schema provides a flexible system to encode descriptive and administrative metadata, and express complex links between different forms of metadata.
Omnes has integrated a service based upon the set of the IIIF open standards that help archives, libraries, and museums to make interoperable the most of their digitized collections with deep zoom and annotation capabilities related to iconographic and textual components within digital objects.
So, Omnes is a IIIF-compatible software for viewing, comparing and manipulating digital images.
In addition, this service is designed to support access control and can leverage existing SSO systems, via the IIIF Authentication API.
The Fast Data Ingestion process feeds in a simple, fast and automatic way the overall contents that are made available to the user through the search and LTPD web interfaces.
The Search module allows you to find any type of content while the search engine and machine learning enable the user to get more punctual and higher value added search results.
The metadata system implements the most common Standards such as METS, Dublin Core, OAIS and PREMIS, to enhance the already acquired and indexed content.
Metadata can also be implemented in a second phase through the Web User Interface, generating the involvement of users in enhancing their data.
