Reining in the Information Overload
Wow, time does fly! The Ides of March are here and it’s daylight savings time again.
2010 has been pretty hectic for us: product releases, live webinars, trade shows, best practices seminars, on-site client visits, business partnerships, not to mention juggling the growing ecosystem of social networking from LinkedIn to Facebook and Twitter. The information is as overwhelming as it is relentless.
A recent special report in the Economist on “Data, data everywhere” discusses preserving, processing and using the Exabytes that surround us. (How do you even abbreviate an “Exabyte”?)
Without a doubt, messaging takes center stage in the ever-growing information overload. To make things worse, it may turn out that email is making us stupid; yet, it’s unlikely that it will stop coming.
This rather dire scenario has a silver lining, which was uncovered by our clients. It turns out that over the past few months our website has transformed itself from being merely a source of traditional product-related information on email security and archiving software into a valuable repository of resources that help them deal with day-to-day email management, as well as empower them to implement a much broader email risk management strategy.
In my opinion, this is worth writing about. So in the coming weeks, we’ll be providing in-depth spotlights on the various sections on our website: from the newly launched Security & Compliance newsfeed to the eDiscovery and the Email Risk Management centers.
Our goal is simple and ambitious: offer as much relevant information as possible, make it as accessible as possible, reach as wide an audience as possible.
We invite you to share your feedback and bring your ideas to the table. We’re all in this together.
