Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Are your file or email archives a black hole? Do you even archive? If not, you might have a black hole in a black hole. Do you have funding for your archiving project? If not, you have a black hole in a black hole in a… you get the idea.

Email is embedded in your business processes. It contains vital business intelligence, but most of us squirrel it away, or struggle to cope with multiple PST files and unobtainable information. We treat archiving as a tedious compliance problem, if we do it at all.

On the other hand, an interactive archive can improve productivity, help you make decisions by unifying your data sources, give power back to admins, and simplify support. Stuart Walters, IT Director of Taylor Wessing is joining us to tell us how he built his interactive archive, and the benefit he gets from it.

Joining Stuart in the studio on 6th December at 13:00 GMT will be the Reg’s Tim Phillips, Orlando Scott-Cowley from Mimecast - the experts at creating interactive archives - and Tony Lock of Freeform Dynamics, who has been nagging about this for years.

Effective archiving is a problem we all struggle to solve, so join us to hear how you can fix it, what the benefits are to users, the business and IT, and how you can secure budget to build your interactive archive. The event's live, so bring your questions and we'll do our damndest to answer them. Register right here.
