Consulting and Programming Services

Many of the nation's most prestigious law firms, universities, corporations and government agencies have relied on MMC to create special software for recovery and conversion of digital documents, databases, scientific research, document management migrations, federal electronic records preservation and many other needs. Our programmers and system designers are expert in C, C++, C#, VB, ".NET" framework and a number of assembler languages.

Of course, our staff is particularly strong in deciphering arcane data and media formats. That's one reason why the National Archives and Record Administration hired MMC to develop the Archival Preservation System software NARA uses to process and preserve data coming in from all over the federal government. (MMC owns the commercial development rights to this package.)  On the other hand, our skill set is broad enough to handle projects in other areas as well. Just a few examples of our wide range of experience follow:

First, “WWW". No, not the web. For us: Watergate, Whitewater and WorldCom!

Nixon Whitehouse appointment calendar file on an old mainframe tape in a strange database format. It had gone un-cracked for 30 years. We figured it out, converted to a form convenient to historical researchers.

Rose Law Firm “vacuumed” files. Recovered and converted supposedly erased legacy word-processing documents for this Arkansas law firm whose former employee was involved in this political scandal.

Hundreds of WorldCom email backup tapes from tape-raids of several widths, completely jumbled and undocumented. At the time, it was the largest commercial bankruptcy case in U.S. history.

Mainframe files with 50-page record layouts.  Whether it's New York real estate tax records like RPAD or Midwestern Medicare files, the folks at MMC can convert them to a useful format for you--no problem!

Highly unusual diskette and optical disk formats. If you'd like to have a look at some further detail on these and other fun projects, see Chris Muller's talk at the Digital Preservation 2014 conference in D.C.
