Facing rapidly expanding data stores within its Microsoft Exchange environment, Memorial Health System sought a technology solution that would help manage that growth. Specifically, the health system realized that effective tools for automated messaging archiving and discovery would benefit the IT team while reducing its risk exposure. The difficulty of restoring data from backup tapes was also a challenge, with implications across the organization.
Seeking to address these issues, Memorial Health System engaged Symantec Consulting Services, Dell, and US-Analytics Solutions Group to design and implement an archiving and e-discovery solution for email. With Symantec Enterprise Vault in place, Memorial Health System migrated its Microsoft Exchange mailboxes, public folders, and PST files into an optimized archive.
A Total Operational and Economic Impact (TOEI) analysis by the Alchemy Solutions Group revealed almost $750,000 in business value in four primary areas—projected benefits from November 2007 through December 2010—emerging from Memorial Health System’s IT transformation efforts.
