Survey Reveals Widespread Inadequacies in Email Outage Prevention

King Research A new study conducted by King Research, and sponsored by Teneros, surveyed 220 IT professionals responsible for messaging systems in mid-market companies. The goal was to gather data on the activities and products that IT teams are using to ensure messaging continuity, as well as to investigate key challenges faced by the individuals responsible for keeping their corporate email up and running. The research suggests that while most companies are clearly aware of the damage email downtime can do, that knowledge has not yet translated into increased spending on technology and human resources to prevent downtime, hence, outages are still a reality.
