New Orleans, LA, June 05, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Although committed to retaining a vendor-neutral stance, email archive migration expert, TransVault™ Software, has today revealed some unique insights into emerging trends in the email archiving market place.
TransVault’s market-leading product, TransVault Migrator offers one-hop, fully audited data migration between a long list of email archiving platforms, both on-premise and in the cloud.
For over a decade, people have been using email archiving to meet their data management and eDiscovery needs. To date this has been a space dominated by third-party vendors. However, TransVault sales indicate that Microsoft's email archiving ability is now gaining the confidence of enterprise customers wishing to replace an existing archive service.
Starting with the launch of Exchange 2010, which offered personal archives (now known as In-Place Archives) and the subsequent Online Archive service (part of Office 365), Microsoft set about changing how organizations manage the long term retention of their email records. There is now strong evidence that enterprises are seeing the Microsoft proposition as a serious contender.
According to TransVault CEO Barney Haye, "This time last year our licence sales were geared around customer platform upgrades and migrations to newer, more capable third-party archiving products. In a comparatively short time it is clear that confidence has grown in both on-premise Microsoft Exchange and Office 365 archiving. In fact, as of this quarter, we can report that over 25% of the enterprises we are migrating are choosing to substitute their dedicated archives with a Microsoft-only solution."
Walt Burton, Director of Technology Solutions, Bishop Technologies Inc. commented, “The appeal of not having to maintain a separate product and separate servers for archiving is quite compelling, but it’s not right for everyone. Some third-party vendors offer extensive information governance and eDiscovery capabilities that are long-proven in the marketplace and clients don’t want to risk being caught short.”
Continued Haye, “The most remarkable thing is that the sizes of organizations we are seeing make the switch. Some of our customers have in excess of 40,000 users, which to me is a real vote of confidence for Microsoft’s offering.”
