Email Archiving Beauty Contest, Jul 18
Email Capacity Planning, Sep 26

Ferris Research is soliciting speakers for the following webinars:

  • Email Archiving Beauty Contest, Jul 18. Several email archiving vendors concisely present their solution, its key strengths, and unique selling propositions. A Q&A session moderated and interpreted by a Ferris analyst follows. Participants learn the main differences between leading products.
  • Email Capacity Planning, Sep 26. Messaging managers find it hard to predict the amount and nature of local and server storage. We look at a number of tools that can help. In each case, we briefly explain the product and where its greatest value lies. A Q&A session follows.

Speakers talk for five to 10 minutes on the topic and are joined by three or four other speakers. Attendees are IT staff supporting email technologies, consultants, vendor product managers, and investors.

The webinars start at 8:30 a.m. PST and last one hour. We typically have at least 500 registrants and around 200 actual attendees, so it's good exposure. Participating vendors also have the opportunity to use the events as lead generators by promoting the event to prospective customers.
