Mr. Sutton's purpose in attending the conference is to seek out solutions to the issues and problems associated with the short term archiving and migration of electronic documents within enterprise repositories, especially electronic mail and attachments in their native format. Another area of interest is the need in many organizations to archive snapshots of the web server repositories that are serving their inter/intranet sites. With the number of links involved, just taking a backup copy is insufficient because of the number of software upgrades taking place at the application level. How does an organization preserve this information within a usable context and logical structure?
