Meet the Team: Jeff Andersen - Solutions Director


We had the opportunity to sit down with Jeff Andersen and delve into his experiences with OIA.

How long have you been with OIA?

My journey with OIA began in 1998 as an eager technical consultant in Perth, and after a stint exploring IT in law firms, I rejoined the company in Sydney as an Information Management Consultant. Throughout this time, I've collaborated closely with Steve Litton and the iManage team to establish OIA as a leading iManage partner in the APAC region. This adventure reflects not just a career but a passion for growth and excellence in the ever-evolving IT landscape.

What’s your favourite part about being with OIA?

My favorite part about being with OIA is the people. It's like a family reunion every day, filled with individuals who have incredible ethics, vibrant personalities, and unwavering commitment. Over the years, we’ve formed amazing friendships and collaborations, riding the rollercoaster of life together. The support from my teammates is a gift I couldn’t be more thankful for. The relationships we build are the cornerstone of trust and enduring partnerships with our customers. Truly, the people at OIA are the heart of our success.

What’s something to do with iManage that you’re looking forward to?

I'm looking forward to iManage's deepening partnership with Microsoft and the enhanced integration with M365 it brings. The exploration of GenAI applications, particularly Copilot, is also exciting as it will revolutionise our interaction with organisational knowledge. Additionally, the focus on customer success initiatives is providing valuable insights and improving our capabilities. Overall, these advancements are setting a promising future for our professional and customer goals.


Recent End of Life (EOL)

Your OIA account manager will be in touch to discuss your legacy iManage solutions and a path forward with iManage Modernisation steps.



Action may be required for the above End of Life notices. Please follow the Support Announcements page for further steps required.


OIA will continue to provide level 1 support for FileSite & DeskSite to direct customers who are still on maintenance, where it is practical to do so and where the issue can be solved with training, administration, configuration or installation; and is not the result of a known defect or needs to be escalated to iManage for further assistance. Any third-party applications that rely on FileSite or DeskSite are assumed to be unsupported by the vendor and OIA will provide best efforts assistance with supporting these.


Extension of Limited Support IDOL

In 2021, iManage announced the End of Life (EOL) for iManage Work Indexer powered by IDOL and iManage Records Manager (IRM) Indexer for IDOL was planned for December 2023. iManage is extending limited support for these products to December 31, 2024.

This extension provides additional time to complete a move to iManage Cloud or to adopt the RAVN-powered version of Indexer for on-premises implementations, while freeing resources to deliver the most impact for end users by migrating from DeskSite and FileSite to Work 10.

However, for on-premises customers who do not plan to move to iManage Cloud by the end of 2024, it is recommended to transition from IDOL to the RAVN Indexer as soon as possible to reduce risk and leverage the benefits of RAVN Indexer, including improved search accuracy by eliminating the need for stop words and optimization for iManage Security Policy Manager need-to-know security.
