Microsoft migration partner


This year Akaibu headed to sunny Orlando for Microsoft World Partner Conference.

Akaibu are a gold level Microsoft partner, so it is important we attended to present our solution to the hundreds of potential new partners. As usual Microsoft put on a good show, with interesting speeches for a host of Senior Microsoft management.

Take a look at out 2015 WPC page to find out more 

Akaibu are pleased to announce the latest development is a new file format connector that is compatible with Evolve. Evolve can now move data from the mbox file format to a number of target platforms. This development was the result of a specific requested from a partner who has been using Evolve for some time as part of a turnkey archiving solution. The partner was confronted with a client who needed mbox data migrating. Rather than going through risk of find an alternative migration platform the partner asked if it was possible for Akaibu to develop an mbox connector for Evolve. Of course Akaibu were happy to help!

Andrew North, Akaibu CEO, elaborates “Our commitment to offer our partners exclusive developments such as this really stands us out against our competition. Partners don’t what to have to go find a new solution from every different source format they are confronted with. The Evolve platform is one partners know they can trust, the more connectors we add the happier our partners become. Going forward, we're always open to suggestions for new developments, anything to help our partners win deals and make their clients happy”

We were proud to take the opportunity to work with Symantec this year as part of the Vision 2014 Sponsor team. 
The show was a really great opportunity for us to meet existing and potential partners and clients, and explore the issues that are top of mind around data management and migration. 

It was also helpful to meet Symantec stakeholders and our STEP team - helping to broaden our reach and take the Akaibu message of simple and trustworthy deployments to the market.

Akaibu was invited to the recent specialist roadshows at the key sites in Reading and Florida. The sessions were a great opportunity to reach out to new and existing partners to catch up on progress and outline current and future strategy. We're looking forward to the next set of sessions and grateful to the STEP team for their continued assistance. 
Wrap up warm and don't forget your booties - because it's cold out there. Well, it certainly was during our trip to the New York LegalTech conference in February. Snow, rain, and the general cold had us braving the elements and avoiding the ice in our quest to help clients and partners understand more about who we are and what we can offer them.

There were a plethora of sponsors and attendees including a number of our partners who are keen to highlight how they can assist solving the challenge of an archive migration. 

There were also many Interesting sessions covering the future of discovery, audit and control as well as the real and the dark web. 

Intelligent migration was a popular topic for a number of potential clients so we took them through our approach which allows users to reduce the burden and cost of a traditional migration through the use of intelligent filtering.

One recent client benefited from this feature as it enabled them to reduce a 40TB "move everything" project to a 10TB "just move what we want" projectt.

A number of organisations also approached us to discuss the support we could provide for defensible control, management and deletion.  

We're looking forward to seeing how the market develops over the next 12 months
