Click through for five factors you should consider when moving your email archiving to the cloud, as identified by Greg Arnette, founder and CTO of Sonian.
Despite the business applications you may have in place for internal and external information sharing, email still remains the location where most of your business’ information is stored.
On average, each U.S. worker receives more than 11,000 emails per year. Within that email is an ever-growing data set of conversations, contracts and commitments between employees, partners, vendors and customers.
In fact, Gartner tells us that 80 to 90 percent of an organization’s intellectual property is stored in or communicated via email. Further, 45 percent of that email contains “business value” (think purchase orders, negotiations, product roadmaps, corporate strategy, salary or compensation plans and presentations).
So what happens when those emails have left one’s inbox or been deleted from the sent log? Unless it’s archived, it could be gone forever. This poses a major problem when – not if – the day comes that your company needs to provide documentation for something related to regulatory compliance, a legal suit or an employee dispute.
Implementing an email archiving solution isn’t a “nice-to-have,” it’s a “must-have.” So if your company is ready to dive in, here are five considerations for moving your email archiving to the cloud, as identified by Greg Arnette, founder and CTO of Sonian.
