Many organizations seeking to outsource their email systems have been stymied by technical as well as organizational challenges. In the past, things like slow WAN links and overly chatty client-server protocols have gotten in the way. Now, however, outsourcing Microsoft Exchange is becoming more practical.
On November 15, Ferris Research presents a webinar for organizations that are considering outsourcing their messaging function. Ferris analyst Lee Benjamin and a panel of industry experts will look at the types and sizes of organizations that hosted exchange appeals to. They�ll explore what a typical implementation look like. And they�ll explain what organizations can do to ensure a successful hosted implementation. Click here to register for this free event. For more information, click here.
