GroupWise eDiscovery Limitations
“In an increasingly litigious environment, organizations must demonstrate the ability to respond quickly to eDiscovery requests. However, the GroupWise structure presents significant challenges to eDiscovery. Organizations have to decide between accepting fines for non-compliance or pulling together a workable solution with third-party tools.”
Compliance Challenges Related to GroupWise Personal Archives
“GroupWise handling of personal archives poses several problems in addition to eDiscovery. The database structure that worked well in previous decades cannot keep up with the demands of modern email usage.”
GroupWise Expertise Getting Harder to Find
“As these and other problems related to an aging email system become more of an issue, expert support proves increasingly difficult to secure. GroupWise users comprise less than 0.3 percent of the office productivity market share. Consequently, the pool of GroupWise consultants has dwindled.”
When is the Best Time for GroupWise to Microsoft 365 Migration?
“The obvious solution to GroupWise difficulties involves migrating to a modern cloud productivity solution such as Microsoft 365. Moving to the cloud brings a host of benefits, from drastically improved archiving to hassle-free updates. Users can work from anywhere and collaborate easily across distance. And IT no longer needs to spend time patching outdated infrastructure.”
