The evolution of Exchange has come a long way since 1993, which is not even two decades, and the latest version of Exchange could potentially change the way organisations deal with emails and Office documents.
Many SMEs, but also large corporations, are looking at ways to secure and improve their Exchange infrastructure. Most of these solutions often involve buying a lot of expensive hardware and implement complex active directory structures to secure the data.
Furthermore, I would expect that about 80% of any organisation’s correspondence is done using email. Gone are the days of printing and sending letters, ignoring invoices for a minute, so an increased focus is being given towards new and improved solutions.
Many staff is also getting more and more mobile, in order to meet client needs, and might be working from outside the office. This results in higher reliance on the end-user’s laptop and how data is secured on these.
Even worse, many of these applications, such as hard drive encryption, cost a fortune and are another application to administer.
The last thing you want is an unsecure laptop; with hundreds of confidential files go missing. What happens if the hard drive stops responding? This could potentially be a severe PR incident for your organisation.
Microsoft have for years been leading the way in regards to corporate email. In recent months, the latest generation of Exchange (2010) was updated with Service Pack 1. This pack has fixed a lot of security flaws and added new features, and the product is now ready to be deployed globally. Not in the traditional way, by telling IT departments around the World to upgrade their infrastructure. Instead Microsoft has created an Exchange infrastructure that is aimed at sitting in the cloud.
- How does that impact organisations?
- What’s the security model?
- What’s the network impact?
- Do we need to upgrade our link to the Internet?
- Will it backwards compatible?
- How much will this cost?
In order to answer all these questions and a lot more, HiberniaEvros are inviting companies to attend a morning seminar, where we will be exploring new deployments and also the migration (upgrade) path of Exchange 2010. The session will furthermore look at how companies can deploy Office 365.
HiberniaEvros has persuaded a leading specialist on Exchange to speak at this event. Tony Redmond is one of the leading experts in the world on Microsoft Collaboration technology. It will be a more practical approach to a deployment, and not too technical, so the event will be of great interest to CTO’s and CIO’s, who are considering upgrading to Exchange 2010.
The new advances in Microsoft® Exchange Server 2010 bring new levels of reliability and performance to help companies control their cost and at the same time manage the complexity of providing a business class e-mail solution. HiberniaEvros has resources available to assist you with developing your Exchange migration path.
