Ole Olsen founds Digital Collections together with two partners. They are guided by the idea to develop a Google like Research and Digital Asset Management System that can not only manage text but also pictures, graphics, full pages as well as video and audio files. As target groups, they define the world of media and companies who could use the system to improve their workflow, to manage and to share information.
