Event Date: Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Event Time: 2:00 PM EDT

Join the growing number of companies leveraging the cloud to optimize their email environment, help reduce expenses, preserve their application investment and simplify their IT requirements to free up valuable resources. IBM offers a cost-effective and flexible hybrid model that enables you to reap the benefits of both on-premises and cloud-based solutions. There are also new options for the previously under-served workers who only need web-based email access and with a smaller storage quota. You can continue to serve end users with your on-premises systems while serving other users in the cloud, in a way that is completely transparent to people inside and outside your company.

Attend this Webcast to hear how organizations are taking email to the cloud to reduce IT cost and complexity with full-featured business email from the IBM Cloud.

To office workers everywhere struggling to stem the tide of messages filling their inbox, it probably sounds too good to be true.

But a French tech company wants to make it a reality. Calling the volume of its e-mail “unsustainable,” IT services firm Atos Origin plans to ban internal e-mail from company communications within two years.

Instead, employees will communicate mostly through instant-messaging tools or wiki-like documents that can be edited by multiple users online.

Is email dead? Not if it’s still one of the top collaboration tools in business. IDC estimated there were over 400 million corporate email boxes in 2010 alone, with continued growth through at least 2014. But with the rapid growth of the cloud and alternative communications channels, especially blogging, microblogging, and other social networks, it’s clear that email will need to change to stay relevant. And changing it is.
