While moving email to the cloud can be relatively straightforward, moving messaging and collaboration channels to Office 365 raises a significant number of questions pertaining to how those communications are captured and preserved for regulatory compliance and e-discovery purposes.
Office 365 offers native archiving features which require thorough analysis to determine if they are sufficient to meet each organization’s e-discovery and compliance workloads – or if they need to be complemented with third-party archiving solutions.
Ultimately, the evaluation of these factors and multiple stakeholder requirements can lead firms to different outcomes. Some firms will fully embrace Office 365 as their communications backbone, some will migrate specific applications selectively and over time, while other firms will opt for hybrid deployments with some applications moving to the cloud, while others remain on-premises.
This guide focuses on key considerations firms should address to make their migration more efficient and cost effective as well as how to deploy Office 365 while maintaining regulatory compliance.
