Museum group seeks software application to help it map and analyse data

The Science Museum Group is looking for a software partner to help it map and analyse data.

The group has issued a contract notice seeking a provider of “data-discovery software". The group is seeking an application that will offer “file discovery [and] analysis for content classification”.

The technology must also provide controlled access to “information asset owners”, and alert users to any anomalies detected.

Interested suppliers must submit requests to participate by 9am on Wednesday 23 August, with the tender process being kicked off 24 hours later. The contract will last for an initial term of three years, with the museum having the option to extend the engagement for a further period of 12 months. The estimated worth of the contract is £135,000, excluding VAT.

The Science Museum Group comprises five attractions across the UK, including the flagship Science Museum in South Kensington, in London. Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry, Bradford’s National Media Museum, and the National Railway Museum locations in Shildon and York are also part of the group.

In the 2015/16 year the group welcomed a total of more than 5.5 million visitors, including the 3.4 million people who passed through the doors of the Science Museum in London (pictured above)

In addition to its physical locations, the group also offers the public the chance to explore its collection via its websites, as well as a number of other online resources. The group attracted a total of almost 12.5 million visitors to its various websites in 2015/16.
