    Building efficient keyword queries for eDiscovery searches in Exchange and SharePoint

    The ability to run searches across a mixture of Exchange mailboxes and SharePoint sites to uncover the deep and dark secrets of those who would prefer their work to go unnoticed is what, in some degree, eDiscovery is all about. Microsoft has invested heavily in the area of compliance over the last decade, with the initial work showing up in Exchange 2010 and SharePoint 2010. There was much to like in the first implementation, especially in Exchange 2010, if only because so many legal discovery actions center on email....More

    SharePoint’s interesting hybrid cloud search service

    Microsoft announced the availability of SharePoint 2016 Preview yesterday. As expected, This Office server is a tad behind its counterparts in the race to the Office 16 Wave launch expected in October and is on course for a Q2 2016 release. You can’t update this preview version to RTM, so it’s very much a kick-the-tires to see what it does kind of release, which is perfectly fine....More

    New report slams Office 365 compliance features unfairly 2

    Compliance is a pretty big deal for many companies, especially those who operate in regulated industries. Almost every jurisdiction mandates that companies preserve certain records related to their business dealings.

    Updates make Office 365 Groups more useful 2

    On Tuesday, I discussed how changes in engineering practices are driving innovation within Office 365. One of the more interesting areas is the use of Office 365 Groups to provide a single identity for access to applications and data drawn from across the service. Microsoft spent a lot of time discussing what they’re up to with Office 365 Groups at the recent Ignite conference....More

    News about Data Loss Prevention for SharePoint Online revealed at Microsoft Ignite

    Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is a feature that was first introduced in Exchange (2013 and Online) and is now in SharePoint Online (but not the on-premises version).

    Enterprise Collaboration sessions selected for IT/DEV Connections 2015

    It was gratifying to receive so many session submissions for IT/DEV Connections 2015, which takes place at the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas on September 14-17. As you might know, this year the conference is organized around a set of tracks that we think match the interests of attendees, with "Enterprise Collaboration" being the track of most interest to those looking for Exchange and Office 365 content....More

    Exchange Online increases eDiscovery mailbox limit and boasts better performance too

    The Office 365 Roadmap is a great place to look for information about what’s coming up in the cloud-based versions of the Office servers and potentially new versions of their on-premises counterparts. Browsing the “Rolling Out” section recently, I noticed that an entry saying “Exchange eDiscovery mailbox search limit increased to 10K mailboxes,” which prompted some investigation....More

    Another opportunity for automation in eDiscovery for SharePoint 2013 and Exchange 2013

    Why is it that anything that involves co-operation between Exchange 2013 and SharePoint 2013 is quite so hard to setup and fragile to manage? It’s almost as if the two products are the result of work done by two very different development groups rather than part of one great big happy “Office Servers” family....More
