Organizations nursing legacy archiving systems that face end-of-life or no longer provide modern functionality must decide. Regulatory compliance demands the retention of historical records. Should they reduce archiving costs by moving legacy archives to the cloud or continue to maintain costly existing systems.

GroupWise eDiscovery strategies from Ross Phillips In a previous post, we discussed some of the obstacles presented by GroupWise personal archives. In addition to migration challenges, personal archives make GroupWise eDiscovery particularly burdensome. However, quality third-party tools can bridge the feature gap.
