The Applied Research staff work closely with a variety of NARA units to understand customer and business needs, and to evaluate technologies, theories and methods for advancing the lifecycle of electronic records.  Through our TechWatch presentations, we gather NARA customer and business needs/requirements, and identify potential researchers and industry vendors whose products may offer solutions to common archival, business, and technology challenges, such as:

  • Networking and Security
  • Advanced Search
  • Cloud Computing Services
