Aggressive Partner Program Gives the Channel a “One Stop” Platform for Compliant Email Archive Migration of Legacy Archives to Microsoft Office 365 and Leading Cloud Archive Solutions
I had the opportunity to speak with Bob DeSteno, co-founder and CEO, and Bill Tolson, Vice President of Marketing for Archive360, the leading provider of email archive migration software. They've just introduced the Accelerate Channel Program offering partner incentives and engagement tools to drive increased adoption of Microsoft Office 365 and next-generation cloud archive solutions with a simple and compliant email archive migration platform, OnePass MigrationTM. The platform is designed to quickly and painlessly migrate on-premises email archives to the cloud delivering predictable and controlled data migration with full compliance and legal defensibility.
According to leading analysts 60 to 70 percent of new legacy replacement email archiving implementations will be cloud-based. In addition, the deployment of Microsoft Office 365, as well as Hosted Microsoft Exchange offered through hosting partners is expected to grow rapidly over the next four years.
This growth is gaining momentum as more organizations adopt increasing confidence with the security and privacy of cloud services, along with compliance issues for not migrating. And while adoption was initially driven by the SMB sector, it’s now being seen across all business sizes and verticals. The challenge is that the majority of organizations have an aging on-premises email archive that must be compliantly migrated before organizations can take full advantage of the benefits of Office 365 and next-generation cloud archive solutions.
To help hosting providers, managed service providers, and channel partners capitalize on this growth opportunity, Archive360 has introduced its Accelerate Channel Program. A complete migration package “in a box” that enables partners to quickly and seamlessly eliminate the cost and challenges of on-premises legacy archives and compliantly migrate that data to Office 365 and next generation cloud archive alternatives. The result for partners is an increase of up to four times in services revenue, an increase in Office 365 license consumption and a deeper customer relationship and loyalty.
“Traditional, on-premises email archives are quickly becoming obsolete due to the rising cost and risk of maintaining a non-supported archive,” said Robert DeSteno, CEO of Archive360. “Now, migrating archived data in a compliant and defensible manner is painless and profitable with Archive360 and Archive2Anywhere making it more accessible than ever with our Accelerate Channel Partner Program. Featuring extremely fast performance, shortened project timelines, and assured migration predictability and reporting, Archive2Anywhere provides partners the additional access they need to a state-of-the-art archive migration solution to complement their email system migration to Office 365 services and cloud archive offerings.”
