Email expert asks if businesses should migrate to a modern email archiving solution like Office 365 to avoid the limitations of legacy vendors—in a new article from Messaging Architects

When moving to the cloud, avoid the trap of giving up control over the data when you transfer management and storage of the archives.

Messaging Architects, an eMazzanti Technologies Company and email migration consultant, examines legacy email archiving solutions in a new article on the Messaging Architects website.

The informative article offers reasons to stay with an old system as well as the limitations of doing so. The author then cautions readers to avoid the trap of migrating data to the cloud and giving up control via punitive charges for extracting the data.

“When moving to the cloud, avoid the trap of giving up control over the data when you transfer management and storage of the archives,” stated Greg Smith, Vice President of Services Delivery at Messaging Architects.

Below are a few excerpts from the article, “Determine the Future of Your Legacy Email Archiving Solution.”

“Over a decade ago, your organization purchased a state-of-the-art archiving solution to help you save space and achieve regulatory compliance. But technology marched on quickly, and that legacy email archiving solution no longer meets your needs. You must decide whether to limp along with an outdated and poorly-supported product or migrate to a modern solution.”

“Email archiving systems like SourceOne and Enterprise Vault led the industry in 2009. But with mass migration to the cloud, these solutions quickly lost ground to more up-to-date technology. Organizations moved their email operations to nimble cloud services such as Office 365, in some cases leaving behind large email archives.”

Avoid the Traps

“Some legacy vendors may entice you to leave your legacy systems to bring your data into their new SaaS cloud solution. The intention is to avoid the support and infrastructure costs associated with the on-premise systems. Many of these solutions impose serious restrictions or punitive charges for trying to extract your data.”
