Teaching Email a New Trick: Making Enterprise Email Relevant Again in the Age of Mobility
by David Krebs, April 2015
Inside this VDC View:
- The rise in importance of mobile devices has been a key factor in the revamping of the enterprise inbox, particularly in regards to user interface.
- Next-gen email creates a more integrated experience, going beyond the calendar to incorporate chat functionality, improved triage, and prioritization.
- Successful solutions will need to provide cross-application and cross-platform functionality as an integral element, particularly as new form factors like wearables become more widespread.
- Security and privacy remain key concerns, as email remains the enterprise application most vulnerable to data leakage.
