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.

Archiving emails is what we currently use the product for. It's great at this and I believe we could expand it to capture more of our file system (maybe in the future). I love the search capability, particularly at the administrator level when responding to FOI requests. It certainly cuts down the effort!

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.

  • The last version I was involved in was version 10. EV FSA IE Stubs were not intelligent at all. It was simply a short cut which bought us a lot of flexibility on one end but lacked intelligence to do anything with it. Moving IE stubs from one location on the file system to another was also challenging as the permissions had to be synced up. There needs to be proven well documented process to walk operations through the details.
  • EV SharePoint at the time lacked support for archiving blog type content.
  • We used Veritas EV Agent to backup Enterprise Vault. However, agent based solutions lacked performance but setup was significantly easier. The best option is to use Snap Shots to backup your archive. There are a set of powershell scripts that can help with ensuring the vault stores are backed up using these technologies.
  • FSA IE shortcuts had no icons of the original file.

Symantec Enterprise is one of the best in the industry. We have already deployed their product to thousands of devices in the company and it would be a huge project to go through and change to an alternative product. We have also had much luck in dealing with their customer support. They have been very pleasant to deal with and their technical support has been quite knowledgeable in fixing our issues. This leaves us with very little reason to switch to a new product. We would have to see a significant amount of cost savings to switch to an alternative that offers all the same features and modules.

Alternatives Considered

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

Using Enterprise Vault means having a system that is not directly integrated in your backups, and not tied to the upgrade kadence of your backup systems is nice. With CommVault or other backup driven software the upgrade cycle and user experience is not always tied to the desktop products so users can be left using older versions. In addition, CommVault and other backup based software often does not have good litigation hold and search tools.

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.

  • Reduced storage (getting rid of PSTs)
