An Osterman Research White Paper

Organizations that employ email and other electronic communication and collaboration systems generate large amounts of content. Many of these communications contain important business records, such as purchase orders; contracts; conversation threads with employees, business partners, prospects and customers; employee evaluations; vacation requests; corporate policy statements; and many other types of information. Moreover, there are a variety of legal, regulatory and best practice obligations imposed upon organizations to retain this content in to ensure its capture, prevent it from being modified, and that will allow it to be searched on demand. To satisfy these requirements, organizations of all sizes and across all industries must implement an archiving solution of some kind that will enable the capture, protection and search of content.

This white paper addresses the reasons to archive electronic content, the advantages of cloud archiving, and it offers a set of questions to consider as cloud archiving providers are evaluated and considered.
