Never before have the pressures and expectations placed on IT departments been so great. In an ever-changing global marketplace, companies are looking for every opportunity to gain a competitive advantage and simultaneously grow revenues, profits, and customer loyalty. IT is playing a critical role in supporting those efforts.
Unfortunately, many IT departments struggle to fulfill the expectations placed upon them as facilitators of strategic progress. One reason is that many IT departments' heads find that the majority of their time and budget is spent maintaining what they already have, instead of developing new strategic capabilities. In fact, according to many analysts' estimates, up to 80 percent of IT budget is currently spent on maintenance.

One of the primary factors causing this imbalance is IT complexity.

Most IT managers must deal with multiple desktop, server environments, storage and networks, in addition to the integration of legacy and modern systems and workloads, as well as various point solutions that have been deployed to support and manage these systems. Unfortunately, these point solutions often add their own level of complexity for IT.

Amplifying the problem is the pace of change that organizations face today. Whether in business, government, or nonprofit sectors, technological innovation and global competition, in addition to various other factors, create a dynamic environment where it becomes more difficult for IT to meet changing needs on a timely basis. Consequently, aligning current business requirements and IT priorities becomes a constant point of friction?and the less agile the IT organization, the greater the potential for misalignment.

Messaging Infrastructure

IT decision makers believe that e-mail is a mission-critical application for their organizations-without e-mail, business stops. They need their messaging systems to be up and running and protected against spam and viruses. They also need assistance in meeting the requirements imposed by new regulatory regimes.

As workforces become increasingly mobile, employees require the flexibility to access their inboxes regardless of where they may be. They need an integrated, seamless way to access their vital business communications such as their e-mail, calendar, and other vital information whether they are at work or away. They want to spend more time getting work done and less time coordinating the logistics of their lives-booking conference rooms, setting up meetings, searching for information in e-mail, and switching between different messaging systems.

IT staff need support as they strive to do more with less. Time, money and resources are in short supply so they need more efficient ways to deploy and manage their messaging systems. They are looking for ways to reduce the complexity of their systems and get more performance from their infrastructure.

Thus e-mail is a valuable and convenient business tool. However, if your e-mail infrastructure is not chosen carefully and correctly, it can be the source of hassle, wasted time, spiraling costs, and even risk to your business.
