We surveyed 124 organisations with a median of 1,400 employees to understand the problems they face in managing Office 365, additional capabilities they would like to have, and other relevant information about their Office 365 environments.
This whitepaper offers organisations planning a migration to the Cloud a ‘considerations roadmap’ for migrating their legacy email records.
Email archive migration is not a simple task, in fact, it’s rather complex and requires considerable forethought and planning in order to migrate data reliably while also maintaining the integrity and preserving the full chain-of-custody for migrated data.
Many IT organizations are faced with shrinking or static IT budgets while their legacy archives continue to be expensive to maintain, difficult or impossible to upgrade, and falling short of needed functionality. New data responsibilities have arisen that many legacy systems are not capable of addressing, including retention laws, increasing security/privacy requirements, and more inclusive eDiscovery responsibilities and expectations.
When migrating to cloud-based systems, there needs to be a plan about what to do with a huge repository of leaver’s mailboxes, email journals and on-premises legacy archives. This whitepaper details how to transition effectively without having your data locked into proprietary archives and storage systems, or trapped in proprietary and unusable formats.
