Gartner analysts Garth Landers, Alan Dayley, Anthony Kros and Jai Zhang write that, “Broader information governance concerns (regulatory compliance, business-focused retention and deletion of data, and managing aging data based on a clear understanding of its value) are beginning to surpass e-discovery as the primary driver for deploying EIA.”

Gartner also notes 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."

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.

Gartner defines Enterprise Information Archiving (EIA) as, “products and solutions for archiving user content (such as email, files, IM and SharePoint documents) and other data types (such as structured data, websites and social media content). These products provide features such as data reduction across content types, retention management, content indexing and at least basic tools for e-discovery. Due to the complexity associated with managing multiple data types within an archive, EIA can more broadly encompass capabilities like federated archive repository management, and common policy management for migration, retention and discovery across multiple repositories.
