Oct 2022 – Metataxis joins Microsoft Records Management Customer Advisory Board working group.

Metataxis is thrilled to be a member of the Microsoft Records Management Customer Advisory Board (CAB) working group.

Microsoft CAB working groups enable industry professionals to get together and suggest and share feedback with Microsoft, in order to help them develop and enhance their current capabilities to address customer challenges and new requirements.

The Microsoft Records Management Customer Advisory Board working group is made up of records and information governance professionals from the UK, United States, Australasia and Europe, including representatives from government and private sectors, consultants and National Archives institutions.

These compelling sessions offer the opportunity for Records Management experts to present and propose the developments we would like Microsoft to consider that would best serve our records management requirements.

Siobhan King, Senior Consultant at Metataxis, explains: “These valuable meetings enable us to share our challenges, experiences and requirements with other industry experts from across the globe, and in turn, support the ongoing development of Microsoft 365. Our most recent CAB meeting with Microsoft was a lively and well informed event, where we discussed the next round of records management development requests on our wish list, including version management and expiry dates.” 

Microsoft runs a quarterly cycle for considering improvements, based on the proposals put forward by industry professionals. The next round for reviewing development requests will take place in October.
