Missing the point

I just came across CIO.com‘s predictions for the coming year. There are some interesting thoughts but the comment that stood out was from John Vrionis of Lightspeed.
He was discussing using the cloud to archive emails and makes the good point that this method could be cheaper than traditional methods but goes on to say:

…it would be great if you could keep your junk in someone else’s garage.

The prevailing wisdom might be that archiving email is merely ticking a ‘regulatory’ or ‘compliance’ box, but it (and archiving more generally) offers much more. The data held in enterprises is not ‘Junk’ but can be leveraged to help the business in many ways.

Over the coming months we will be blogging about the many ways that archiving can be creatively exploited by businesses. We hope that you will come to agree with us that email (and other) data are not ‘Junk’ but useful business information.
