WindowsITPro and Transvault Issue a New White Paper in Support of their ‘Mastering Your Migration’ Series

Leading tech publisher and archive migration leader combine on delivering a Microsoft Office 365 Best Practice Guide

28th July 2016 – Clevedon, UK – Transvault, the leading developer of email archive migration solutions, today announced the launch of a new white paper, developed in conjunction with Penton Media’s “Mastering Your Migration” seeks to arm IT decision makers and consultants with vital information required prior to migrating to Microsoft Office 365.

Many organizations maintain an archive of emails, historically to extend mailbox storage, as well as a means of complying with email retention policies either set forth by corporate governance standards or industry regulators, particularly within verticals such as Finance, Insurance, Government, Healthcare, Public Sector, and others dealing with litigation. However, even though an email archive can contain much greater volumes of data than that held in email systems such as Microsoft Exchange, the migration of this key business resource is often not fully considered until very late in the overall planning, or omitted entirely only to become a significant cost later on.

“Organizations often forget about the absolute need and benefits of migrating their archive when moving to Office 365,” said Nick Cavalancia, industry expert and founder of Techvangelism. “It’s critical that the parties charged with a successful migration strategy understand the complexities involved, and the ramifications of not moving every bit of your archive to Office 365.”

The new white paper positions this, “there are significant challenges you will face and have to consider on your way to kicking off an archive migration project to Office 365 – some that ideally should be discussed well before you start to use the Microsoft Cloud for email”. The paper breaks down the topic into four key areas; planning what should be moved, the challenges of moving an archive, how to best make the move, and in its conclusion, how to “Master Your Migration”.

“There’s so much to consider when an organization looks at migrating its email service to Cloud systems such as Microsoft Office 365 and we see this white paper as a valuable part of various content and resources that we will make available to IT admins and others”, commented Barney Haye, chief executive officer at Transvault. “Whilst the archive is only one component of the move, it’s an absolutely crucial one and, if not completed properly, the organization risks the outcome of costly, non-compliance with legal implications down the road”, concluded Haye.
