One of the most pressing Information Technology challenges organizations are facing today is managing the vast amount of data that exist at their company, especially with regard to email data. Over the last decade many legal regulations have been passed and amended to address these growing data concerns, especially with regard to email, as they contain critical business communications. These regulations require organizations to be able to quickly and accurately search and recover email data related to legal proceedings, which has led to an overwhelming adoption of email archiving and recovery solutions. Email archiving and recovery solutions allow organizations to manage their email data in an uncompromised format, to be able to meet complex and detailed legal search requests and to comply with all the varied legal regulations. Enterprise Vault and Discovery Accelerator is a leading product suite that provides email archiving, search and recovery functionality. This thesis uses the qualitative and design research methodologies to determine how Enterprise Vault and Discovery Accelerator are able to address the legal landscape that organizations are faced with today.
