June 16, 2016

17a-4 has developed support for HipChat Server. The DataParser for HipChat Server is now available. 

Millbrook, NY – 17a-4 has released a new module of the DataParser to support Atlassian HipChat Server.  The DataParser is middleware to handle regulated data for retention in an archive.  HipChat is a popular communication platform gaining ground with corporate users, many of whom have compliance requirements.  The new module of the DataParser for HipChat Server ensures messaging compliance just as with Microsoft Skype for Business, Cisco Jabber, Thomson Reuters Eikon Messenger, Bloomberg, InvestEdge, FactSet and other supported data sources.

HipChat offers group and one-to-one chat with audio, video, and screen sharing. The DataParser handles the daily export from HipChat Server to format users’ conversations into daily threaded emails. Metadata and participant information are included in the emails. The DataParser also handles all HipChat Server attachments and maintains source files.

“HipChat Server has quickly become a leading enterprise communication platform by focusing on scale, reliability and security,” said Alison Huselid, offering lead for HipChat Server. “The new DataParser integration extends HipChat Server by providing customers with a data compliance solution.”

The DataParser’s modular architecture provides an efficient and cost effective platform to collect and control many sources of data and to apply unified compliance policies and procedures. It is designed to integrate easily into existing infrastructures and to run multiple configurations in more complex client environments. The DataParser supports all major archiving technologies, both in-house and out-sourced, allowing clients to leverage resources and keep compliance costs to a minimum. The various delivery options include the ability to send messages directly into an archive, to a file location and/or into Exchange or Office 365. If clients are using Office 365 for compliance, the DataParser can deliver to the third-party data mailbox which allows for Microsoft’s new Security & Compliance features to be applied.

“We are continuing to develop interfaces for clients that need to bring messaging into compliance,” offers Curt Robinson, Chief Technology Officer, “we have an architecture that allows us to quickly create a new module for the data source, while creating a consistent email or XML record that may be ingested into any archive.”
