With the increasing maturity of e-mail and calendaring applications, the benefits of an in-house e-mail provisioning strategy can now be realized with a hosted solution. When making the decision whether to change strategies, small enterprises should consider the following:
- Is hosted e-mail a reasonable option?
- What does in-house e-mail provisioning actually cost?
- What cost savings can be realized with hosted e-mail?
Understanding these points will allow IT managers to make informed decisions when considering the shift from an in-house e-mail strategy to an outsourced one.
