LiveOffice Wants Frustrated On-Prem Archiving Customers

LiveOffice announced its Troubled Archive Relief Program (TARP) on November 4, which provides a "bailout"option for customers dissatisfied with their on-premises archiving solutions.

We frequently hear of customers using on-premises archiving solutions who have had issues in their deployments, been frustrated by high-impact or frequent index corruption issues, or are not getting the value they expected out of archives that just lock emails away without exposing the intellectual property they contain for reuse. This move is well-timed given the bailout fears in the economy, the increasing pressures on corporate budgets, and the groundswell of customer frustration in some camps.

As with all SaaS-based offerings, customers need to scrutinize service-level agreements (SLAs), ensure financial penalties are in place for measurable noncompliance with these SLAs, establish clearly documented e-discovery procedures and pricing up front, and understand what the offboarding process will be should they decide they want a bailout, well, from LiveOffice. ...

About Ferris Research

Ferris Research studies messaging, and the control of electronic information. More specifically, we help IT staff evaluate and implement products and services that:

  • Provide messaging and collaborative technologies
  • Archive electronic information
  • Ensure compliance with corporate policy, industry regulations, and laws
  • Facilitate e-discovery, and contain its costs
  • Reduce the dangers of information leaks

Email is the most important type of electronic information that requires control today. Other important types include instant messages, Sharepoint teamspaces, images, voice, video, and miscellaneous desktop files.

We've been in business since 1990--longer than any other analyst firm in our field:

  • Clients include 300 of the world's 1,000 largest organizations, and computer vendors from the largest corporations to small startups
  • While other analysts have come and gone, we've published more than 200 formal reports and 1,100 short bulletins
  • Our news service covers more than 2,000 highly specialized announcements annually
  • We have nine experts in our research team, sharing many decades of experience in our core competencies

In short, our technology and industry depth helps you understand today's products, where they've come from and where they're going.
