Organizations that use the Microsoft Teams chat-workspace service but that also keep their Exchange e-mail server data on-premises now have new optional e-discovery, compliance content search, preview and export options, Microsoft announced on Friday.
Microsoft added those capabilities to make it easier for organizations using Teams to move to Office 365 and to switch to using the Exchange Online service for e-mail, explained Ansuman Acharya, a product manager for security and compliance on Teams. “This helps decouple the Exchange cloud migration from a successful deployment of Microsoft Teams,” he explained.
The new search capabilities are designed to work across mailbox data that are stored locally on a customer’s premises, but presumably, these capabilities also makes it easier to switch to using Exchange Online.
