Osterman Research provides direction and guidance for archive migration.

Akaibu, Inc., a leading vendor in Email Archive Migration solutions commissioned a study in email archive migration during January 2013. The intent of the study was to qualify the emerging market of Email Archiving Migration. The study revealed comprehensive archiving is becoming an increasingly essential element of good corporate governance because records in email must be maintained for long periods of time. Most organizations will eventually need to migrate their archive for any of several reasons, including consolidation of various archiving deployments, mergers or acquisitions, improved methods for content management, and migration to the cloud.

The study and resulting white paper discusses the importance of email archiving, how archiving is evolving over time, and important considerations in migrating archives from one platform to another when required. The paper also provides a brief overview of Akaibu, the sponsor of this paper, and its relevant archive migration offerings.

The vendor-neutral white paper covers a wide range of topics including the following key drivers for email archiving; legal and regulatory compliance, storage management, and end-user considerations. These topics are discussed and become the basis of understanding for the ultimate requirement of Archive Migration. Since many organizations have already implemented email archiving solutions, it is expected that with time and their evolving Information Governance requirements many will need to migrate to newer and more robust archiving platforms. This white paper provides global insights into the ultimate reasons for migrations and what key issues dictate the recommended process as well as the process itself.

According to Michael Osterman, CEO of Osterman Research, “An archiving migration, if not handled properly or in a timely manner, can result in a significant loss of user productivity.” Mr. Osterman stated further, “Any organization that is considering a migration from one archiving platform to another, or that is forced into the decision because of a merger, acquisition, outgrowing their current system, etc., can benefit from the use of a well thought-out plan and migration system.”
