MessageSolution Partners with Hitachi

MessageSolution is constantly undertaking new partnerships. This month, Hitachi Software Engineering America, Ltd., joined the MessageSolution Global Partnership Program. Hitachi Software Engineering America’s parent company, Hitachi Software Engineering Co. Ltd., is a subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., a leading global electronics company based in Tokyo, Japan.

With this partnership, MessageSolution joins the ranks of Hitachi Software Engineering’s prestigious partners, which include industry giants like Microsoft, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Nokia, and Sun Microsystems.

After evaluating vendor solutions from across the competitive email archiving industry, Hitachi selected MessageSolution as the company’s go-to archiving software for its global client base because of the unique, industry-leading technology found in MessageSolution’s main product, Enterprise Email Archive (Version 5.0). When Hitachi and MessageSolution began co-developing powerful product functions and features designed for the international market, Hitachi was impressed by MessageSolution’s engineering team’s ability to create high quality products under tight deadlines.

Like MessageSolution, Hitachi’s success stems from its products’ appeal to multiple market sectors worldwide. As an authorized reseller of MessageSolution products, Hitachi Software Engineering will be an integral part of MessageSolution’s expanding network of global partnerships and channels. Look for the announcement in the News & Events section of our web site this month.

Corporations Face Daunting Challenges

The Facts
Approximately 541 million workers worldwide conduct business via emails. The typical message user sends and receives 25,000 emails annually, according to Osterman Research’s statistics. These emails often contain vital corporate intelligence. In fact, 60 percent of a corporation’s critical information is contained in employees’ emails, according to Radicati Research Group.

And electronic messaging systems are only increasing in popularity among today’s corporations; Gartner Research indicates a growth rate of 40 percent per year of email and instant messaging volume. Corporations’ massive volumes of data are compounding on a daily basis.

The Problems
Decreased Server Performance and Increased SpendingEventually, these hoards of data start to impose a huge burden on the corporate information storage infrastructure, resulting in sluggish server performance and constant downtime.  CIOs and IT managers find themselves constantly buying more and more expensive hardware to try and support the sheer volume of data. Without the proper solution , storing this data can become quite costly.

New Corporate Accountability Requirements. Meanwhile, corporate scandals and investigations in recent years have led the SEC and other governing bodies to pass new regulations for storing and accessing corporate intelligence. These regulations require corporations to archive their emails, attachments, and other electronic files. Very few companies, either publicly-traded or privately held, are exempt from regulatory scrutiny by federal or state legislators.

Along with compliance regulations, legislation and legal fines have hurt many corporations because their current data backup systems and storage and access policies cannot support the new compliance regulations, internal or external audits, or electronic data discovery. Companies have discovered they need an email archiving solution to avoid accruing millions of dollars in legal fees or fines.

The new compliance initiatives and the huge volume of electronic communications present a combined IT challenge for corporate executives to take on; MessageSolution presents the email and file archiving solution.
