Digital Asset Management

Our Enterprise Digital Asset Management (DAMS) solution is an Open Source, policy driven application designed for the long-term preservation of digital information and built on the OAIS model (Reference Model for an Open Archival Information System).

The system can store digital assets of any type, but is especially suitable for the storage of archival and records grade assets, and addresses major storage trust requirements including Digital Preservation Archives, Records Management with retention enforcement, and Digital Rights Management.

Create, maintain, publish and broadcast controlled vocabularies including: Thesauruses, Taxonomies and Authority Files. All vocabularies can be created and maintained in any language or script. Published vocabularies are automatically synchronized with an application interface whenever language vocabularies are available.

Manage and deliver e-books to a range of digital content (e-book) distribution channels including: online-retailers, digital wholesalers, print on demand vendors, and search engines. E-book distribution consists of sending a package containing ebook files, covers, and ONIX metadata to each distribution channel you have selected to carry your digital book products. 3.

Enterprise Content Management System

Alfresco is an open-source Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system that manages all the content within an enterprise and provides the services and controls that manage the content. 

  • At the core of Alfresco is a repository that persists content, metadata, associations, and full-text indexes.
  • Programming interfaces support multiple languages and protocols upon which developers can create custom applications and solutions.
  • Out-of-the-box applications provide standard solutions such as document management, records management and web content management.

The platform provides easy mobile access to content, delivers a simple but rich collaboration user experience and helps customers maximize the value of their content. It is the preferred ECM platform for thousands of customers worldwide.

A default Alfresco installation comes with a suite of out-of-the-box components and modules that comprise a fully functional application. There are also a number of standard interfaces (APIs) to access core repository services and extend the facilities that Alfresco provides.

The environment is structurally separated into plug-ins or modules, which allows decoupling and customisation of functionality and user interfaces to suit specific uses and process flows.

Hosted Intranet

Our Intranet solution can be deployed under 10 minutes, and provides a fully featured Drupal 7 Intranet out of the box. These features meet all mandatory UK Government requirements with regards to accessibility and security along with advanced content management features typical of any enterprise-grade CMS.

The Drupal distribution provides a core set of user interface elements, functionality and features that can be used as the basis for any Intranet. Resources traditionally directed at licenses, build, and implementation can be directed towards content and customisations. 

The distribution meets the majority of core requirements for government intranets in the base installation, and provides a foundation for more complex requirements requiring enhanced features and customisation.

Online forms builder

Our preconfigured Online Forms tool uses Drupal (an open source web content management system), and is resiliently and securely hosted in our UK based ISO27001 certified datacentres.

Axis12 is also certified to ISO27001 meaning that the security of our clients’ data is at the heart of everything we do which why other organisations where security of client data is essential, trust us with their digital data gathering requirements.

GOV.UK online forms

Axis12 have developed a preconfigured framework for the rapid building, iteration and deployment of GOV.UK online forms. These adhere to the 10 GDS design principals and are underpinned by their 18 ‘Digital by Default’ service standards.

Because they are securely hosted and can be deployed within minutes, our forms solution is ideal for Alpha, Beta and Live stages of your project. Some of our clients have used our solution just for Beta then redeployed the forms on their in-house architecture for Live, while for other clients we continue to host, support and develop their live GOV.UK forms offering.

Our forms solution is hosted on our Private Cloud architecture within ISO27001 certified datacentres based in Kent and Newbury. The datacentres are staffed 24x7x365 by security, technical and network staff that provide full support for our systems. Backed by our own ISO 27001 certified processes for change control and server management, our GOV.UK forms offering is trusted to deliver superior performance, security and uptime.
