bluesource UK, January 29th, 2015 – Hoare Lea, a highly successful, award-winning firm of consulting engineers, selected bluesource to advise and assist in the move to a cloud based archiving solution, This has resulted in Hoare Lee experiencing over 20% reduction in its in-house, archiving support costs as well as efficiency improvements, as data can now be quickly accessed for legal and compliance purposes. bluesource recommended Symantec’s Enterprise as the new platform and successfully migrated Hoare Lea’s data from an on-premises environment to Symantec’s, maintaining data integrity.

To more efficiently cope with both its corporate and data growth, Hoare Lea wanted to streamline its IT resources and update its archiving solution to deliver more features that included powerful search functions for data compliance, lower storage needs and offer eDiscovery capabilities to assist with potential legal risks.

bluesource has been supporting Hoare Lea’s data archiving needs for 9 years and as Hoare Lea had been using Symantec’s products, bluesource recommended a move to Symantec’s high performance cloud archiving platform – Enterprise This cloud solution is a more cost effective and efficient solution for Hoare Lea’s requirements than an on-premises version and also delivered performance continuity.
