On Email, According to AIIM research
- Only 49% of survey respondents are confident that their electronic information is accurate, accessible, and trustworthy.
- Only 38% said they are "very" or "quite confident" that emails related to documenting commitments and obligations made by staff are recorded, complete, and retrievable.
The words "accessible", "retrievable" jump out. Email archiving, Retention Management, Text Mining and semantic analysis capabilities all converge here.
So Just how Big is Email Archiving? It's Big.
THIS is an interesting article on the prevalence and importance of email (HT: Impact Lab).

Nearly three-quarters of adult e-mail users in North America said they used it every day, according to an April survey conducted by Ipsos for Habeas.
Folks aren't moving to wikis instead of email to trade and share their thoughts on products, they're using wikis along-side emails.
