Why Customers Don't Move to Exchange 2007 Overnight

Given that Exchange 2007 was released more than a year ago and is a stable product, you might think everyone has already moved to it. In fact, organizations have a number of reasons for postponing the move. Samples of what I hear are:

  • My current Exchange 2003 system is working fine.\
  • The new Exchange 2007 requires new server and storage hardware and I do not have the budget.
  • The old Exchange is easy to operate and I do not have the time to master the new PowerShell commands.
  • My current PST situation is a mess, but Exchange 2007 offers nothing to help.
  • User mailboxes continue to grow, but moving to Exchange 2007 will only make matters worse.
  • I am too busy with other more pressing projects.
  • I am going to wait for the next version of Exchange and skip the 2007 release.
  • I am considering switching to an online email service such as Exchange Online.

If you are considering moving to Exchange 2007 and have not yet made the move, we would love to hear your reasons why. ... Bob Spurzem

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.
