Gartner analysts Garth Landers and Alan Dayley write that, “Archiving as a service (aka cloud archiving) has rapidly surpassed on-premises archiving as the preferred deployment model for most organizations. Gartner sees 60% to 70% of new or replacement email archiving implementations as being cloud-based.”

The analysts also note that, “The EIA market is healthy and growing rapidly. EIA is emerging as a commonly used technology underpinning for higher-level use cases supporting information governance, e-discovery, historical preservation of data and application retirement. Originating as a technology solution targeted specifically at email applications, the EIA market has expanded to include broad support for multiple content types.”

About Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving

Gartner, Inc.'s Magic Quadrant positions vendors in a particular market segment based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute.

According to the report, "The term "enterprise information archiving" (EIA) incorporates products and solutions for archiving user content (for example, email, files, IM, text messages and Microsoft SharePoint documents) and other data types (such as structured data, social media and Web page content). These products provide features such as data deduplication across content types, retention management, content indexing and at least basic tools for e-discovery (which, in this case, includes functionality for legal hold, advanced search, export and other features specific to managing data for e-discovery within the archive). Due to the complexity associated with managing multiple data types within the archive, EIA also more broadly encompasses capabilities such as federated archive repository management and common policy management for migration, retention and discovery across multiple repositories."
