The Radicati Group Releases New Study "Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 - Total Cost of Ownership"

An Analysis of the Costs of Running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 in Enterprise Organizations

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2008) - The Radicati Group, Inc., a leading market research firm specializing in messaging and collaboration, today released a new study analyzing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 in 19 corporate organizations. Based on detailed surveys with 12 mid-size organizations in the 500 to 2,500 user range, and 7 large organizations in the 4,500 plus user range, the study provides an in-depth look at the costs involved in the deployment of Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.

The study looks at all major components of cost, including: Acquisition costs, annual Maintenance contracts, Installation costs, on-going Administration costs, Downtime costs, Training and Storage costs. It also provides summary information on deployment of third party products for anti-spam, anti-virus and wireless email.

Organizations surveyed indicated that their decision to migrate to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 was driven by a desire for better economies of scale, improved security, support for clustering and replication, native support for wireless "push" email and a desire to eventually adopt Unified Communications.

The study was funded in full by The Radicati Group. To order a copy of the study, or for additional information, please visit our web site at http://www.radicati.com, or call Quoc Hoang at (650) 322-8059.
