Open Source SIG: Fixing Enterprise Email through Open Source
Monthly Meeting of the Open Source Software SIG
Fixing Enterprise Email through Open Source
Enterprise email is broken. Challenges like overflowing inboxes and the overhead of organizing correspondence, as well as the cost of managing storage, availability, retention, and compliance are conspiring to make corporate email an interminable source of frustration among users and administrators alike. Major changes are being accelerated by companies that leverage Linux and open source communities to deliver innovative new collaboration solutions. This session will highlight what’s in store for enterprise messaging:
- A demonstration of better messaging and collaboration
- Commitment to building an open source community
- Architectural overview including AJAX, search, extensibility, performance, caching, security, fault tolerance, archival and more.
