Compliance Notes from Microsoft INTERACT2008
I attended Microsoft's inaugural INTERACT2008 conference in San Diego earlier in April. While Office Communications Server (OCS) was the clear focal point for the event, Microsoft’s Exchange Server 2007 received good coverage as well.

Two tidbits I noted from a compliance standpoint:

  • Microsoft Exchange team has adopted a Protect, Preserve, Discover, Prove framework for compliance.
  • Microsoft OCS team made it clear that OCS is not a platform for compliance. Third-party archives are currently the only solution in this area.

Kudos to Bob Maher, Terry Myerson, Gurdeep Singh Pall, and the entire UC team at Microsoft on pulling off a quality event and attracting a very focused audience. ... David Sengupta
