Legacy Email Data Management

Why is it important to preserve legacy email data

60% business critical information in email: These email often contain agreements, contract negotiations, commitments, issues, invoices, reports, notifications, contacts, etc., which makes it essential for the organization to preserve this data securely for extended periods of time to ensure business continuity and meet compliance goals.

Smoothen Employee Transition: There is a growing need to allow employees to locate historical email from their predecessors’ mailboxes to support a smooth transition of the role along with maintenance of context.

Meet Regulation Compliance: Organisations operating in regulated industry sectors, by law, must retain a copy of all email in an immutable repository and be ready to prove that the information is safe, replicated and tamper evident and provide tools to discover & extract information on demand.

Unlock Trapped Value: From an opportunity perspective, organisations who preserve email and can discover on demand are in a strong position to unlock the value trapped in historical email data and leverage email data as an asset by finding reusable knowledge pieces, conversations, usage patterns, and run analytics to gain business insights.

Challenges with preserving legacy email data

Data Fragmentation: As employees come and go, their email data is collected and stored on various mediums such as tapes, drives, suspended mailboxes, endpoints, etc., creating fragmentation of the data, spread across the organization.

These traditional methods of preserving historical email data in most organizations increase data related risks and are not useful since all this data is stored in the raw form, making it difficult to access and search. Penalties for non-compliance can be severe and costly.

Data related risks: Businesses are keen to de-risk on this front and figure out a way to centrally preserve all their legacy email data in a secure environment, be ready for regulation compliance and leverage this accumulated wealth of information (70% + business-critical data is carried in email) for business decisions, insights, knowledge discovery and extraction.

Migration to cloud: However, migrating all this fragmented information from traditional archive environments into a central cloud environment can be a time consuming, human intensive and difficult.
