Email is now far too core to a business' needs to just leave to natural evolution. Server consolidation is required to create a more cost effective and manageable environment, but resiliency and accessibility need to be addressed at the same time.
Email volumes continue to rise, and managing the content that reaches the reader is increasingly important. Spam, malware and inappropriate content needs to be stopped - both incoming and outgoing, and email content needs to be secured against leakage to recipients who are not meant to see the content.
Storage needs to be controlled - both because storage management in itself is not cheap, but also due to the increasing needs for governance and audit. Correct storage policies can then lead to greater email system availability and for the capability to manage backup and restore needs in an appropriate manner.
Finally, a company's communication and collaboration needs will continue to evolve, and tools will be required to manage this evolution while maintaining accessibility to function.
Quocirca's belief is that companies should be looking at what tools are required to make their communication and collaboration solutions more fit for purpose, as existing systems tend to have too many holes in their base offerings.
