INTACT Software Library

Software Library

Your personalized Software Library includes software installations that are needed for reliable access to your data. It is hosted in Intact Digital private data centres and enables secure and convenient use of software through virtual desktops.
We take special care with software that requires obsolete operating systems and pose security risks. We ensure that your software can be used safely and reliably for as long as your business requires. 

Featured event: European Bioanalysis Forum (EBF) 13th Open Symposium
17-20 November 2020
Poster: Long-term readability of data: Legacy software virtualization case-study.
EBF Open Symposium, 19 November  2020, 16:00-17:30 CET.

Software Library is designed to address key challenges that businesses face due to technology obsolescence.  We work with you to ensure that the installations and remote use fully support use scenarios and documentation requirements.


Protect your investment in software technologies and valuable data


Validate and transfer knowledge through re-producible analyses of data  


Meet regulatory requirement for retention and readibility of data


Support effective use of past data and analyses to enable innovation

Software Installation Process

Our proven processes and techniques enable secure and reliable use of unsupported software.  Our technical experts

1. Identify software requirements and optimal way to install and maintain

2. Document installation, validation and usage to adhere to regulations and industry standards

3. Test and maintain installations during ongoing use.  

Adding new installations to your Software Library involves four stages.  

1. Software is installed within securely managed virtual machines.
2. Virtual desktops provide secure remote access to software and data.
3. Software installation is validated and data analyses is reliably reproduced.
4. Virtual environments and software installations are monitored and maintained.

Software Library Components

Software Library is designed to support the use of software installations and the management of digital assets associated with the installed software. It includes the Management Portal, Library Portal and Digital Vault.

Together they enable a systematic and principled approach to system decommissioning and full compliance with regulations on retention and long-term readability of data.  Data from digital archives and project repositories can be safely transferred to the Software Library for use with software installations and removed upon the task completion.

Management Portal

The management portal includes detailed records of software technologies included in the Software Library, user account information, license information, and regular service and usage reports.

Library Portal

The library portal hosts customized digital desktops for completion of specific user tasks using the virtualized software technologies.

Digital Vault

The vault stores software technology files, installers, system and user documentation, installation documents created during the virtualization process and installation images of the virtualized software.

Software Library Use

Software Library supports use scenarios across industry sectors that use software technologies to create lasting business value through digital computation, data and knowledge.

In Bioanalysis, Software Library is used by labs to comply with Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) and ensure readability of raw data stored in e-Archives. Software Library contains specialized applications that are required during GLP audits to reproduce data analyses from research studies conducted ten or more years prior. The application installations are validated and approved for study reproducibility and maintained for long-term use.
