Obama Reaffirms Freedom of Information Act

Government agencies at all levels are responsible for disseminating public information. This includes both paper and electronic information. Electronic information includes email, files, documents, spreadsheets, and all other forms of electronic information. President Obama recently issued this memorandum that endorses U.S. FOIA and reaffirms the commitment to accountability and transparency at all government branches.

Government agencies in countries with Freedom of Information acts must carefully plan for retention of electronic information, including email, to comply with such rulings. Email records are very challenging to manage and search due to the inherent limitations of the email server, and the complex structure of email information. As a result, email continues to need specialized archiving technology, different from that for other types of electronic information. Email archiving solutions are needed to satisfy Freedom of Information requirements. ... Bob Spurzem

Recent Messaging and Collaboration Fundings
Wednesday, April 29, 2009
8:30 a.m. Pacific, 11:30 a.m. Eastern, 4:30 p.m. U.K., 5:30 p.m. CET. One hour.

The severe global recession has made it difficult for emerging companies to raise money. The number of fundings is roughly half its normal rate, and valuations are similarly reduced. In this webcast, we speak with Marc Olson of Nayatek and Tal Golan of Sendio, two messaging companies that recently completed a funding round. They'll discuss, among other things, how they raised the money, the main investor concerns, and how the funds were used. They'll also provide advice on fund-raising do's and don'ts.
