17a-4 DataParser

The Teams DataParser supports collection of chats, channels and chat bots including memes, emojis, images and bold or other formatted text.

17a-4’s DataParser for Microsoft Teams is now in Beta. DataParser is a leading compliance solution to collect regulated data types for retention in an archive. Microsoft Teams is the new chat-based workspace in Office 365.

The Teams DataParser supports collection of chats, channels and chat bots including memes, emojis, images and bold or other formatted text. The processed messages are threaded into conversations and include all user and timestamp data. This new module will ensure Teams messaging compliance just as with Skype for Business, Yammer, Cisco Jabber, Symphony, Thomson Reuters Eikon Messenger, Bloomberg, HipChat and other DataParser supported data sources.

DataParser is on premise software that has no impact on the collected data source networks. Chat users’ activities are not disrupted by the DataParser’s processes and compliance officers do not have to make changes to eDiscovery procedures. The design allows for integration with Active Directory to specify users or types of messaging to be collected. Multiple configurations are supported for more complex environments. All major archiving technologies, both in-house and out-sourced, are supported allowing clients to leverage resources and keep compliance costs to a minimum. VMs are supported, including AWS and Azure. Message delivery options include the ability to send directly into an archive, to a file location and/or into a mailbox in Exchange or Office 365.

Clients on 17a-4’s Beta waitlist are now being contacted to schedule testing. For more information about the Teams DataParser visit
