Records Management in Microsoft Office & Exchange 2007 Jason Cahill, Lead Program Manager Microsoft Corporation Tina Torres, Corporate Record Manager Microsoft Corporation
Why RM got our attention Its now every CEOs problem Not doing it is very expensive $2.8B spent on e-discovery in 2007 Adverse inference for improper production: $1.45B in damages Getting it right is challenging: 43% of respondents have NO e-records plan 53% have no system to hold e-records
Business Framework Some information must be retained, but we cant keep everything Critical and foremost: Prevent Insufficient Retention Additionally: Reduce unnecessary retention
Stakeholders Companies: No/disorganized picture of current status Fear additional costs Employees: No awareness/understanding of records management policies Its too much extra work IT: Non-standard/integrated storage methods Information Lifecycle ends with storage No one is aware of the need for change!
Microsofts corporate IT/RM requirements Document / records management: Central storage, decentralized access Works in the places they already use Company controls retention policies Records automatically sent to long-term repository Very easy for end-users: Users retain control over the places they use Simple concepts for identifying docs for retention Users dont need to see the whole file plan
Requirements (continued) Litigation Holds: Search to find relevant documents Documents can be collected remotely No disposition until holds are lifted Users, documents can be placed on hold PSTs (Non-server managed e-mail): Ability to phase these out for good!
Microsofts e-mail pilot Why did we start with e-mail? You are over quota… Would you like to auto-archive now? Goals: Validate policies are clear & can be followed Test feasibility/impact of user categorization Verify whether automated cleanup works
Microsofts e-mail pilot Users: 500 representative users initially Expanded to 1500 users in Nov 2005 Pilot program: Large (1-2GB) mailboxes Users file e-mail in folders based on content 6 month expiration period in inbox & default folders Existing PSTs are grand-fathered in as read- only: No new PSTs
E-mail management pilot Next steps: Records Repository folders exposed to users via Outlook 2007
Pilot: Lessons learned Types of e-mail users: Pilers: 25% Filers: 75% Pain points: Categorizing existing PSTs is painful (80%) Not pain points: Feeling of e-mail is not mine (5%) Needed more space (5%) Productivity impact (3%)
