“The increasing volume of audio and video content stored in SharePoint Online, OneDrive and Azure has become a tedious management challenge for today’s enterprises including corporate legal departments for eDiscovery,” said Tibi Popp, Co-Founder and CTO, Archive360. “Traditionally, they’ve had little indexable data for search and discovery processes and both indexing and search has been largely done through time consuming and error-prone, manual processes. With our support – out of the gate – for Azure Cognitive & Media Services and the Azure Archival storage tier, we’re automating the indexing process, greatly speeding search and improving discovery accuracy while dramatically lowering total storage costs.”

“Because indexing and searching audio and video files has been such a time-consuming process, many organizations have large stockpiles of these files that are difficult and costly to search and discover. This can present eDiscovery, compliance and governance challenge
