SharePoint eases Exchange e-discovery

SharePoint's new e-discovery capabilities with Exchange Server are a major boon for records managers tasked with retrieving information in Exchange mailboxes. While SharePoint 2010 introduced some e-discovery features such as Hold, SharePoint 2013 makes it easier to query mailboxes and to access, query and archive information, reducing the amount of time it takes to mine data. But querying Exchange Server isn't tunrnkey. It still requires know-how. Understanding how to work with SharePoint's eDiscovery Center was the focus of a recent podcast with Microsoft MVP Brien Posey.

"SharePoint 2013 has a special module called the eDiscovery Center, which is just a special type of site collection," Posey noted. "But the big news here is that it's been designed so that you can perform e-discovery not just within SharePoint but also within Exchange Server and Microsoft Lync."

Posey talked about the improvements to SharePoint 2013 in retrieving information, all while mitigating time-consuming and potentially costly processes.
