Washington, D.C., Jan. 30, 2017 — FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced the Company’s Technology segment has teamed with Microsoft to provide data governance and discovery consulting and services for Microsoft 365 users. FTI Technology assists companies with a broad range of needs around Microsoft 365 usage to ensure legal and regulatory activities remain cost-effective and defensible.
"Microsoft 365 represents a transformational change for organizations, and this migration offers legal teams an opportunity to develop and implement industry best practices for e-discovery and information governance," said Jake Frazier, a Senior Managing Director and Leader of the Information Governance & Compliance Services (IG&CS) practice at FTI Technology. "Using our global expertise in legal, regulatory and technical matters, we’ve helped organizations implement Microsoft 365 so that legal and regulatory requirements are not only accounted for, but are streamlined for easier and more cost-effective management."
According to Microsoft, 80 percent of Fortune 500 companies are using or plan to use Microsoft 365 software and services. FTI Technology provides a wide range of services to ensure a cost-effective, safe and defensible Microsoft 365 migration and implementation, including:
- Data migration: Safely migrate data from legacy archives to Microsoft 365 while active cases are underway
- Data remediation: Defensibly delete redundant, obsolete or trivial (ROT) information to reduce cost and data breach risk
- Legal hold: Update policies and ensure existing holds are maintained during the migration
- Data privacy: Adhere to data privacy regulations impacting how and where sensitive information is stored and transferred
"Cloud-based applications can provide significant cost-savings for organizations, but legal teams must have a seat at the table to ensure that legal and regulatory compliance needs are met," said Chris Zohlen, a Managing Director within FTI Technology’s IG&CS team. "Our expertise handling complex legal and regulatory data matters provides us with a unique skillset to meet the myriad of challenges involved in migrating to or supporting enterprise data in the cloud."
