Microsoft Exchange lets you tailor your solution based on your unique needs and ensures that your communications are always available, while you remain in control. Move to the cloud overnight, deploy on-premises, or manage a hybrid deployment with mailboxes that are both online and on-premises. Manage powerful capabilities, including data loss prevention and Office 365 Groups, from the easy-to-use, web-based Exchange admin center. Role-based access helps you manage Exchange efficiently and delegate tasks. With Exchange archiving, large mailboxes, and retention policies, your users can keep important data in one place and you can take control of your storage and compliance demands.
Using the BAI Microsoft Exchange for SharePoint Connector, users can retrieve content from Exchange through SharePoint Search. Security ensures that users will see only emails from their own mailbox, public mailboxes, and other mailboxes to which they have been granted access.
Support for searching Exchange content through SharePoint works across multiple versions of Exchange, including Microsoft Exchange 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 and Exchange Online.
Based on our experience developing more than 50 connectors and with over 150 customer deployments, we can tell you that building custom solutions for SharePoint search is difficult and full of risks.
Our “off the shelf” Microsoft Exchange for SharePoint Connector provides the following capabilities:
1Support for active and archive mailboxes.
2Crawls both messages and attachments.
3Indexes every desired item with a very high throughput.
4Minimizes the performance impact on the source.
5Only surfaces the content that users are permitted to see.
6The source system retains the master information and the search index has only a representation (pointers).
7Supports both full and incremental crawls.
Future-proof your investment for new SharePoint versions and O365
With each successive version of SharePoint, Microsoft extends its core capabilities, and the same is true of new releases of Microsoft Exchange. BA Insight does the hard work of keeping the connector up to date for both Exchange and SharePoint. In addition, the Microsoft Exchange for SharePoint Connector also works with O365 through Cloud SSA. In fact, we support current versions of SharePoint, including 2010, 2013, 2016 and Office365.
The upgrades can be done by your IT organization. It is a matter of accessing the BA Insight customer portal, downloading the latest release and installing and configuring it. Or, if desired, our professional services team can handle the upgrades.
