Content Filtering Considerations during Migration
- November 13, 2015
In the most recent blog post, we discussed how to migrate emails, attachments, contacts, notes, tasks, and appointments from obsolete or abandoned email archives. We also suggested that the proper migration process included moving all content from the archive to a staging platform to conduct further analysis to determine what content should be retained for litigation, regulatory compliance or business use/continuity, and what could be disposed of. In performing data migrations of any type, a best practice is to characterize the data you have in the email archive before you recklessly move it to another repository or dispose of it.
Before you can cull email archive content, you have to know what the email archive held and what content needs to be kept and why. Once you create culling (filtering) policies to flag the content to be retained, the migration process can continue.
The key to a successful (and less risky) email archive migration is to move all data out of the email archive and then cull it based on policies that fit your specific industry/legal situation.
There are only a couple of companies that can migrate the complete data set from the Mimosa NearPoint and EAS email archives in a defensible, forensically sound manner. Archive360 has a proven track record of successfully, inexpensively, and quickly migrating huge amounts of NearPoint archived email, contacts, calendar entries and public folder content to many other storage repositories including Microsoft’s Office365 with the Archive 2-Anywhere solution. Get ahead of this risk and call us today.
Your legal, compliance and security teams rely on having an immutable copy of all of your emails. Office 365 archiving does not support journaling. So what should we do?
