The aim of the project was for the CAD area of the stage construction of a television broadcaster to automatically secure the project data in the archive. This should then enable the specialist departments to be able to independently access old data or data which is no longer available in the online system.
Direct access is via the digital workplace of the dataglobal CS. A particular challenge is that the proprietary document formats from the various CAD programs consist of a set of individual files. If the individual employee wants to access an older version, both the original structures and the respective correct versions of individual documents must be provided. Archiving is done on a daily basis and fully automatically, including all versioning and indexing, in order to ensure the correlation between the individual files and projects.
The advantage for the department is, on the one hand, that it is possible to continue working with the hierarchical structures in the file system as usual. On the other hand, employees have the security and flexibility to access deleted documents quickly and independently at any time. Previously, the help of the IT department was always required. Other challenges which are solved with the dataglobal CS: Guaranteed compliance with the statutory storage obligation as well as the documentation of changes in stage construction. Both aspects are ensured thanks to automatic versioning in the digital workspace of the dataglobal CS.
