zetcom is pleased to announce its most recent museum implementation in Australia with the two-site Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) based in Brisbane. For QAGOMA, zetcom will integrate the software MuseumPlus with connected digital asset management.
We are looking forward to beginning a new museum implementation in Australia. zetcom will equip the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) in Brisbane with the MuseumPlus software. The art museum was seeking a software partner to provide a comprehensive, integrated IT solution in a single system architecture, integrating collections information and data asset management.
Building on MuseumPlus’ flexible architecture and access to an abundance of technical expertise, we look forward to working closely with QAGOMA to adapt the modular software precisely to support the workflow required. In addition, MuseumPlus will enable the integration with further systems in-house, covering publication online, DAMS and future extensions as needed.
QAGOMA will use MuseumPlus as web-based software covering the museum’s collections, exhibitions, events, customer relations, archive and digital assets. With this range of functionality, the software will provide support for “best practice” in all standard museum management processes according to Spectrum guidelines.
In addition to MuseumPlus, the zetcom team will be connecting a digital asset management system (DAMS) for QAGOMA. We look forward to working together to connecting their commercial DAMS to MuseumPlus through our open API interface. This creates a fully integrated IT infrastructure that enables both collection management as well as data and media management from a single system.
Only 150 metres apart, the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art are two vibrant architectural sites connecting art and people. The Gallery’s mission is to be the leading institution for the contemporary art of Australia, Asia and the Pacific, engaging people with art and artists through memorable and transformative experiences onsite and online.
The Queensland Art Gallery building opened in 1982 as part of the first stage of South Bank's Cultural Precinct. In July 2002, Sydney-based company Architectus was commissioned by the Queensland Government following an Architect Selection Competition, to design the Gallery's second site, the Gallery of Modern Art.
The high technical standards and the innovative vision of QAGOMA opens up a special framework for this project and for zetcom as the Gallery’s IT partner. We are extremely motivated because we will fully exploit the possibilities of our technology. These are excellent conditions that will enormously enrich QAGOMA's culture and art activities.
