Integration: The Final Step in Change Management
The final step in successful change management is the Integration stage. Here’s how to bring everything together. Watch now.
Our development team has been hard at work making improvements and adding functionality to our powerful email archive migration solution—Archive Shuttle. You’ll notice several notable new features, enhancements, and performance improvements in Archive Shuttle 9.0.
Development efforts were focused on 3 main areas:
Perhaps our biggest effort involved adding a feature we call . When enabled (it’s disabled by default), item data associated with finished mappings is moved from active tables to the Cargo Bay (a backup database) to minimize necessary records within active tables. When this feature is enabled, you’ll notice improved performance when you’re interacting with active item data.
We also improved efficiency through better handling of failed items and error logs.
The second focus of Archive Shuttle 9.0 was user experience. We wanted to improve usability by showing information you need, where you need it. Here are a few areas where you’ll see improvements:
Plus, you can now add comments to mappings that are visible on the Stage 1 and Existing Mapping screens.
So, for example, let’s say you need to pause a migration. You can add a comment to the mapping that says it “exceeded maximum mailbox size.” Then, when someone wants to know the status of that migration, they can easily see why it’s not yet finished.
Last, but not least, we focused on extending our Enterprise Vault support. For example, we now support Enterprise Vault SMTP journal archives. In addition, the ZAPArchivePermissions command (which removes permissions of the source archive) is now supported for Enterprise Vault to Office 365 migrations.
