Gartner: Microsoft’s Exchange 2007 Could Set the Future for E-Mail

Unfortunatly the whole report is behind the "subscription wall", so for those who have a Gartner subscription a good read and some new insights next to the 64 bit FUD discussions ..

The release of Exchange 2007, Microsoft’s new e-mail system, will have broad implications for the overall e-mail market and may offer Microsoft the potential to usher in a new era of converged communication technologies.

  1. Ben,
    Thanks for sharing this bright insight ;-). If you have a chance read the report and try to understand what it’s really about …UC …
    Think Office Communications Server, Exchange, Unified Communications .. Thát’s the direction.

  2. MS Exchange releases usually do have broad implications for the e-mail market.
    After all, it does pretty much single-handedly keep Anti-Virus companies in business!

  3. Peter, I’m sure that Ben is reffering to the Microsoft philosphy of solving problems by throwing a rather larger number of different server products as opposed to that other product where one single server product does it all.

  4. Joerg,
    Thanks for clarifying. I think you are confusing a few “FUD factors” around the Microsoft platform. One is that Exchange 2007 only runs on 64 bit servers, albeit true this fact is taklen way out of proportion and very often by people who do not have very much information other than hearsay.
    Second is the “moving parts” FUD factor around the servers in Microsoft Office System; this is the one you are referring to I suppose ?
    I do not know what your personal experience and insight into the Microsoft platform is, so I don’t know where to start … check the marketing analysis category on my blog for some links to analyst information around the collaboration space and see for yourself how the market is evaluating the “o so difficult” Microsoft platform, how it stacks up to the “everything integrated into one box Lotus Notes/Domino” ( .
    Or better let someone who runs the platform give you a demo I bet you’ll learn this is very good stuff and that there actually is more than marketing ensuring such rapid growth in adoption and marketshare 😉
