Cost-Effective Alternatives to Exchange
Wednesday, June 18, 2008
10:00am Pacific, 1:00pm Eastern, 6:00pm UK, 7:00pm CET. One hour.

Microsoft Exchange is the dominant messaging and collaboration server for in-house organizational use. However, some organizations are seeking alternatives to Exchange--perhaps because they are cost-sensitive, have a Linux strategy, or need to deploy larger mailboxes. In this webinar, Ferris analyst Richi Jennings and Sina Miri of PostPath map the landscape for Exchange alternatives. The webinar concludes with a Q&A period.

About Ferris Research

Ferris Research studies messaging, and the control of electronic information. More specifically, we help IT staff evaluate and implement products and services that:

  • Provide messaging and collaborative technologies
  • Archive electronic information
  • Ensure compliance with corporate policy, industry regulations, and laws
  • Facilitate e-discovery, and contain its costs
  • Reduce the dangers of information leaks

Email is the most important type of electronic information that requires control today. Other important types include instant messages, Sharepoint teamspaces, images, voice, video, and miscellaneous desktop files.

We've been in business since 1990--longer than any other analyst firm in our field:

  • Clients include 300 of the world's 1,000 largest organizations, and computer vendors from the largest corporations to small startups
  • While other analysts have come and gone, we've published more than 200 formal reports and 1,100 short bulletins
  • Our news service covers more than 2,000 highly specialized announcements annually
  • We have nine experts in our research team, sharing many decades of experience in our core competencies

In short, our technology and industry depth helps you understand today's products, where they've come from and where they're going.
