The Email Abyss — Most IT Managers View Email Archiving as an Important Initiative for 2008

In a recent study by Network World, technology managers, systems administrators and others ranked investment in anti-spyware, business continuity and disaster recovery systems as most critical for 2008.  Most of the respondents also ranked as critical or important the need to deploy or improve e-mail archiving capabilities for e-discovery purposes.  Remarkably, the study did not ask about information life-cycle management,  The report suggests, therefore, that legal, compliance and records management professionals, who are (or should be) focused on reducing the overall retention of information, are at odds with technology professionals, who apparently would just as soon archive email then deal with its final disposition.
