Email Archiving and Management report from CMS Watch

OK, this is a must read report if your interested in managing email chaos ! I know, because I have read it already..... :-)

This is another exemplary piece of CMS Watch analysis, not just disecting some of the technology / products available in this space, but concentrating on what you need to know about archiving and managing email messaging, and most importantly, focusing on the possible fit between one of the available solutions and your own specific business requirements.

In my opinion this would be a good read for the 'C' level individual who does not need read the indepth analysis of each product, but does need some hand holding at the high level - the 'EAM' for dummies section, whilst at the same time, if your an experienced Exchange or Notes admin, there is still a lot here for you to get your teeth into.

Of course from a wider ECM / Information Management perspective, you might need to come at EAM from a records management or compliance angle too.

Lets face, when it comes down to it, most organisations are a long way from ECMS based content centric collaboration, full use of Instant Messaging or 'conversational media' such as blogs, email is the lowest common denominator and like all forms of digital content creation (across all media) the volumes just continue to grow and grow !

Hello Jed, hope you're keeping warm in Canada. I'm in Wash, D.C. I just read one of your post from May in reference to the CMS report and I downloaded an excerpt and now would like to have the entire report. Problem is I just launched a consulting firm and I have landed my first gig doing an enterprise archival project. Needless to say I don't have the $$ to purchase the report and would like to know if you could give me some leads as to where I might obtain the full report for a fraction of the cost. If I had the funds I would gladly purchase it because it's one of the BEST documents-for evalating a product/technology-that I have come across in ages. Pls help a fellow consultant out-if you can.
