Simple conversions from Acrobat PDF docs that have been created by Word, Excel, etc., probably do not need this program. But if you are ever faced with anything more than simple, straightforward conversions, this program is definitely worth it and will save hours of work. I have not found anything else that even comes close.

CommVault

CommVault is very well suited for an environment that is somewhat or completely virtualized and continuing that trend. It's for the data center manager that wants ease of functionality and manageability to be a driving force behind the purchase decision. The ideal customer would want to support multiple data recovery tiers, extending into applications and endpoints.

Pros

  • Creates editable spreadsheets from Excel documents that have been scanned.
  • Allows certain segments of documents to be selected for editing.
  • Allows bulk conversion.

  • Recent major release upgrades provide tools for pre-flight checks on the management servers if the environment is fit for upgrades or requires attention or fixes prior to a successful upgrade.
  • Recently we went through a management server consolidation exercise and it worked flawlessly and the process was pretty straightforward and easy to follow.
  • Support team is very responsive and provides confidence in solutions and good follow through until the problem is rectified or solved.

Cons

  • It's a little challenging to edit the row breaks.
  • Sometimes selecting all the pages in a document is cumbersome. "Select all" with custom conversion does not always choose all pages.

  • CommVault's products can be confusing from an architecture standpoint. discovering where each piece plays a part can be hard without some additional support
  • Training is almost a necessity if you are like us, a small organization with limited time to just learn a product on the go.
  • Licensing could be better designed for the smaller guy. They have made attempts, but some additional work is need. Not all of us are big enough for capacity licensing to make sense.

Not a simple solution to use and one with a lexicon and vocabulary you will need to be familiar with in order to use the product to its potential.

Alternatives Considered

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

We initially compared only the two solutions, since at the time (2008) were the only two companies to provide NDMP support for NetApp (on the QVL at least). We selected CommVault since it did that and showed a superior approach to email compliance. Server backup was usually be done the same by everyone.

Return on Investment

  • I save hours of work when dealing with client information. It takes only a few documents for me to recover the cost of this software in time saved.

  • The IT ROI, especially in our law enforcement environment has been extremely beneficial. The time it takes for FOI requests for email have been cut down to at least half.
  • The management servers are difficult to host on virtual servers due to storage requirements, so this impact of limited data center space is less beneficial.
  • I usually only have to contact support about 2 or 3 times a year at most, so IT is save the time of having to troubleshoot with support.
