SaaS exchange 2010 why make the move

  1. 1. SaaS Exchange 2010: Why make the move? Why Gartner ranks Exchange 2010 as the top performing messaging application for E-mail The past year brought substantial progress in the long march toward provision of e-mail as a cloud service, but most activity still centers on premises-based offerings. Against this background, Gartner evaluates eight providers of e-mail systems (both cloud and premises based). The recommendations of industry analyst heavyweights such as Gartner save significant time and cost in the research and analysis of ICT departments themselves.). Evaluation Criteria Weighting Sales Strategy Standard Offering (Product) Strategy Standard Geographic Strategy Low Innovation High Market Responsiveness and Track Record Standard Marketing Execution Standard Overall Viability (Business Unit, Financial, Strategy, Organization) High Providers reviewed: IBM, Google, Microsoft, Mirapoint, Novell, Open-Xchange, VMware/Zimbra and Xandros/ Scalix. Rankings available: were Strong Negative, Caution, Promising, Positive, Strong Positive Microsoft Exchange 2010 was the only provider to achieve a Strong Positive ranking Gartner comments on Microsoft Exchange 2010 (August 2010): Exchange 2010, which is starting to increase its market penetration, promises improvements in storage efficiencies, high availability and disaster recovery, as well as more granular administration control and user self-service options. We expect adoption to follow the normal trajectory of previous Exchange releases, peaking at 50% by the end of 2012… in 1H11 it will update Exchange Online with the 2010 version of Exchange, which is better suited to working in a multitenant environment. The current 2007 (Exchange Online) cloud release lacks some essential features, such as password synchronization, a health and performance console, multi-mailbox search and end-user password resetting. Furthermore, simple e-mail administration requests, such as to track a message, forward mail to an external mail box and disable ActiveSync require submission of a service request to the Exchange Online help desk, which creates operational inefficiencies for customers.” QUANTIX COMMENTS In delivering ExchangeCloud, Quantix has provided the industry recognized leading platform of email systems delivery as a unique dedicated SaaS service (allowing full integration with ERP, CRM, intranets or other services) with all the management and resilience benefits of a cloud infrastructure.
