Email Archiving Will Have Two Waves of Deployment

It’s quite likely that we will see two waves of deployment of email archiving products. The first, already begun, is tactical in nature. It’s motivated by either storage management or regulatory compliance.

A second wave will begin three to five years from now and will enable management of email messages more strategically. Email will be seen as just another content type with word documents, web pages, and perhaps even voice and video content. Think about PC email 10-15 years ago being primarily based on file-sharing architectures and then moving to client-server over the last 5-7 years.
