Sherpa Software Celebrates 15 Years Of Electronic Content Management

Sherpa Altitude IG Shows Company’s Evolution and Commitment to Information Governance

Sherpa Software, a leading provider of information governance and eDiscovery solutions, today announced that they are celebrating 15 years in business. In September of 2000, Sherpa launched their first product, an email management program to help implement policies for IBM Notes email and Microsoft Exchange. For the next 13 years, they built a suite of software solutions that handled all aspects of email management for IBM Notes and MS Exchange environments alike. Those included policy enforcement, archiving, eDiscovery, search and collection, reporting and PST management and migration.

“Our first customer was PNC Bank and more than 4,000 customers later, including 30% of the Fortune 500, we still pride ourselves on providing software that guides the information lifecycle journey,” said Kevin Ogrodnik, president of Sherpa Software. “The growth of electronically stored information has skyrocketed and we decided the best way to serve our customers was by taking our expertise in managing electronic content and extending it beyond email and PST’s to all unstructured data including desktops, file shares, SharePoint, Office 365 and more.”

Altitude IG, Sherpa’s signature SaaS platform for information governance and eDiscovery, is a complete and cost-effective solution. Sherpa has been experts in policy enforcement and eDiscovery for 15 years, long before these initiatives were referred to as information governance. Altitude IG provides a comprehensive suite of tools to support multiple organizational functions from a single platform. The platform addresses a broad spectrum of information governance challenges such as data mapping, eDiscovery, defensible deletion and legal holds. These modules are designed to reduce risk, storage, and search costs while increasing the value of an organization’s electronic assets.

Sherpa continues to pave the way for future success by aggressively adding staff and strategic partners. Sherpa has forged a track record of profitability over the last 15 years and shows no sign of slowing down as they continue to bring new clients onto the Altitude IG platform.
