Biz@rchive - the BizTalk of the Town! Monday 12 November 2001 PDF Print @rchive-it.com launches archiving solution for Microsoft's BizTalk Server Comdex, Stand 150, Microsoft Partner Pavilion, 12th November 2001 - Microsoft Partner, @rchive-it.com, announced today the launch of Biz@rchive, the first secure, fully audited, policy controlled, archiving solution for Microsoft's BizTalk Server. Designed specifically to meet regulatory, legal and business requirements, Biz@rchive allows companies to achieve reliable long-term archiving for e-commerce documents whilst providing the means to immediately recover data in the event of a server failure. Biz@rchive will be demonstrated for the first time in public at Comdex 2001, Las Vegas, USA, Nov 12-16. Microsoft's BizTalk Server allows companies and their trading partners to exchange business information electronically, irrespective of the applications, operating systems or programming language used. Although BizTalk Server provides a means to track documents within the system, it is @rchive-it.com's Biz@rchive that will meet organisations' need for the long term retention and management of business documents. "Research has shown that the cost of managing data can be up to 10 times the cost of the media on which it is stored," commented Peter Winder, CEO of @rchive-it.com. "As e-commerce transactions become more and more automated there is an increasing need for organisations to manage and archive data according to policies and legal requirements, which places yet another financial burden on many companies. By using BizTalk Server to streamline these processes and Biz@rchive to provide automatic archiving, organisations will significantly reduce the overhead management costs." Since Biz@rchive provides a comprehensive audited system, it can also reduce the costs of dispute resolution because it enables data to be retrieved easily and quickly. This benefit can equally be applied to Discovery in the event of a dispute being taken to a court of law, classically a very high cost function. It is also possible for Biz@rchive to be deployed by a third party Service Provider which may further increase the legal weight of the electronic information in question. In addition, Biz@rchive's policy driven design allows organisations to minimise their potential legal exposure through the prompt deletion of data no longer required, which may contain potentially damaging information. Policies are the key element of Biz@rchive's document lifecycle management. They are used to classify the document, set retention parameters and decide whether or not the information should be encrypted. Once set, Biz@rchive will determine if the document should be archived and for how long. Time periods can be set to either a specific date or for a specific length of time, such as 5 years for invoices. Pricing Pricing will be announced at Comdex, but Winder says the starting price for an entry level system will be around £5000 ($7,500).
