Microsoft Office 365 gives you eDiscovery in the cloud. Quickly and easily find and retain content to satisfy legal and regulatory requests and internal investigations. And there’s no need to move content to an archive—it stays in place, immutable, secure, and accessible to content owners. Use eDiscovery search tools and Advanced eDiscovery analytics tools to filter content, and to cut review time and costs. Using these tools, our legal department at Microsoft saves about $4.5 million per year.

The future of IT has shifted from uncertain to a fast-paced technological bonanza. Jim Adams, a Microsoft IT veteran who once side-stepped skills extinction by embracing digital transformation, traveled to Microsoft Ignite to talk with IT professionals about the industry’s shifting landscape and the importance of staying relevant. He wandered the expo hall striking up conversations with IT professsionals from around the world to find out what was on their minds. When it comes to the IT landscape and the future of the industry, what were they excited about? What are they worried about? Adams made his way around to many lunch tables to find out. “It’s the single most authentic way to get to the real opinions and values of our customers,” he said. “By talking to them, and breaking bread with them, you’re demonstrating you’re a colleague, and you understand where they’re coming from—that you feel the same pain.”
Meetings at Microsoft can be complex—crossing time zones, regions, and business groups. Microsoft IT ensures that participants stay productive and focused on the business at hand, without technical difficulties or disruption. A framework that supports Office 365 apps, SharePoint Online, Skype for Business, and Yammer helps to facilitate collaboration for attendees. Proactive preparation and a range of technologies—such as Microsoft Azure for data storage and Microsoft Identity Manager for security—keep meetings on track.
Microsoft IT has deployed team collaboration tools to suit the varied needs of employees, while enabling us to manage data, enforce business policies, and manage document lifecycle. We challenge employees to change old habits and try to help them understand the cloud solutions available to them, including Microsoft OneDrive and SharePoint Online for saving and sharing files, and Outlook 2016 and Yammer for communicating. Our goal is to help people choose the best tool for their collaboration needs.
