New ROI analysis service.

Between a third and a half of all electronic communications kept in company storage devices are irrelevant to the business and don't need to be there, according to Orchestria, a provider of real-time visibility and control solutions for email, the Web, instant messaging and BlackBerry handhelds.

The company has launched a "Return on Investment' analysis service to help large enterprises to accurately calculate how much it is costing to store irrelevant communications and how much they could save by installing better policy management software to properly determine retention periods and storage destination according to message content. The need to store communications data in order to comply with industry regulations is leading many large companies simply to route all employee emails and other electronic communications to expensive, high availability storage. However, discovery projects conducted by Orchestria among its client base have revealed that between a third and a half of these communications are personal emails and spam that have no bearing on the business. Through its work with existing clients, most of which are global investment banking corporations, Orchestria has discovered that companies can typically save 30-40% on storage costs and free up 30% of storage space by implementing a software system to analyze incoming and outgoing messages and archive them according to their relevance to the business.

Orchestria offers such a system with its Active Policy Management (APM) solution, which analyzes incoming and outgoing electronic communications to ensure compliance with industry regulations such as the US Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the UK Financial Services Authority (FSA) Guidelines and the US Health Insurance Portability and Accessibility Act (HIPAA).
