New! Office 365 Data Governance
Gain control of your dataOrganizations are facing significant data overload due to exploding amounts of increasingly complex electronic data. For your organization to succeed, stay agile, and be competitive, you need intelligent cloud services that allow you to work smarter, not harder, as your data grows. Office 365 Advanced Data Governance will intelligently bring information overload under control and support your ability to achieve organizational compliance. Our platform leverages classifications and machine-assisted insights to help you keep what’s important while leaving behind redundant, obsolete, and trivial content (ROT). This means the high-value content across Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, and Skype for Business, which is important to your business, is efficiently protected for as long as you need it to be.
Migrating on-premises dataTo apply compliance controls to on-premises data, organizations can migrate that data to Office 365. The Import Service for Office 365 makes it easy to migrate on-premises email and documents to Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business. In addition, since not all data is alike there are intelligent capabilities built into our data import solution that allow you to filter the data so you only import what you need into Office 365.
Migrating data from outside of Office 365When it comes to ensuring data is stored and protected in accordance with compliance standards, organizations can no longer afford to think about email alone. They must account for new communications mediums including social media, instant messaging, and other collaboration platforms. The comprehensive Office 365 Data Governance solution covers a wide array of third-party data sources with connectors from our partners:
- Social — Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
- Instant messaging — Yahoo Messenger, GoogleTalk, Cisco Jabber, etc.
- Document collaboration — Box, DropBox, etc.
- Verticals — SalesForce Chatter, Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg, etc.
- SMS/text messaging — BlackBerry, MobileGuard, etc.
Office 365 eDiscovery
In-place, intelligent eDiscoveryOffice 365 offers a rich set of in-place eDiscovery capabilities to help you intelligently simplify the eDiscovery process by quickly identifying relevant data while decreasing cost and risk. Our expanding set of built-in capabilities— including case management, search, hold, analyze and export—help you quickly meet internal investigation, legal, and regulatory requirements.
Streamline with advanced data analysisAs your business grows, so do the demands on your organization to be compliant. You’re required by your business, legal, and regulatory requirements to keep and protect what’s important and to quickly find what’s relevant. Spending days, if not weeks, sifting through millions of files to find the small number that are relevant is not just expensive, it’s not an option. Office 365 Advanced eDiscovery leverages machine learning, predictive coding, and text analytics to intelligently reduce the costs and challenges of sorting through large quantities of unstructured data.
Enhanced focus on what’s relevantOffice 365 Advanced eDiscovery reduces the volume of data by finding near-duplicate files, reconstructing email threads, and identifying key themes and data relationships. You can also train the system to intelligently explore and analyze large, unstructured datasets and quickly zero in on what’s relevant. Finally, you can export this data to third-party applications for review.
