Miami Dolphins

A professional football team tackled accusations of cyber bullying among athletes.

Former Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito was thrown into the public eye in 2013 when his former teammate Jonathan Martin unexpectedly left the team. Martin reported an endless amount of verbal and cyber abuse, as well as hazing from Incognito, and it wasn't long before thousands of text messages surfaced verifying Martin's accusations.

The text messages were used as direct evidence against Incognito and other Dolphins players. Incognito was suspended from the Dolphins for "actions detrimental to the team." In 2014, he was cleared to play for the season but the Pro Bowl offensive lineman has yet to be signed by a team.

It's critical for organizations to easily access documents, emails and even text messages. If those forms of information are deleted without being properly preserved, they could be lost forever. This poses an issue when a company needs to provide these records to aid regulatory compliance, a legal suit or an employee dispute.

There have been countless examples of how an archiving system has impacted a company, both negatively and positively. Being able to easily access archived documents, emails and messages takes the guesswork out of certain situations and will ultimately protect your company if used correctly. Greg Arnette, founder and CTO, Sonian, a pioneer in cloud-powered archiving, has identified nine situations in which having records accessible, or not having records accessible, has largely affected companies and employees.
