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.
