Inaction can have consequences

The Osterman report, Choosing the Right Archiving Solution, details some of the potential consequences of not implementing an email archiving solution.

1. Having to perform e-Discovery on back-up tapes; an arduous and time-consuming process – if you can locate the correct tapes.

2. Having to utilise I.T. resources to locate relevant data. This has the double effect of using expensive staff to perform tasks that could be made so much easier and taking these staff away from their day jobs.

3. Spending unnecessary budget on adding storage to buttress mail servers when the data could be moved to lower cost storage.

4. Being incapable of fulfilling legal or regulatory demands, leaving the company open to expensive lawsuits.

The case for looking at archiving is compelling. There are a range of options which vary in complexity to be considered. Hopefully the precis of this report has been useful.
