The proliferation of Microsoft 365 & your long-term records: trends & lessons from your peers

We worked with over 300 information management, records managers and archive professionals from organizations from all over the world during focus groups and user surveys to find out how they are or are planning to manage the rising tide of Microsoft 365 content.

In this session you will hear an exclusive summary of what we’ve learned to help you benchmark and compare your efforts against these results.

Preservica’s Gareth Aitken will be joined on stage by Infotechtion’s CTO and Microsoft 365 expert Vivek Bhatt to talk about:

  • What are the common goals for Records & Archives with M365?
  • How do others plan to use M365/ SharePoint for records & information governance?
  • Which Microsoft tools and capabilities seem to be the most important?
  • How can you get started unifying your Microsoft 365 Information Governance across the full information lifecycle?

A game-changing new approach to scale governance and archiving for long-term Microsoft 365 records

The widespread adoption of Microsoft 365 online for managing high-value records, along with a huge transfer of legacy content, means that information managers are exploring innovative ways to simplify and automate the governance of records over their full lifecycle.

This session will take a close look at Preserve365™, a game-changing new solution that seamlessly embeds Preservica’s unique Active Digital Preservation technology right into the Microsoft 365 and Purview experience.

This new embedded approach turns traditional archiving and preservation on its head, enabling Microsoft customers to implement a single, unified Information Governance strategy without needing to learn and use separate vendor specific archiving, retention management and discovery applications.

We will also take an in-depth look at the innovative design thinking and technology behind Preserve365 including how it eliminates long-term data loss by automatically maintaining critical high-value records (including complex digital objects like Outlook, Teams, social media, 3D, GIS and CAD) in trusted readable file formats over decades.

Preserve365 is now in private preview, and we will share details during this session on how you can evaluate this game-changing new technology at your organization.
