Fewer than one in 10 said they had any plans to store even the lowest tier of archive data, such as e-mails. They 'said we're just not giving our data out to somebody else. Performance still comes up in the commentary, as well. The problem is when you need the data back...there isn't a high level of confidence that they can do that through an external system,' said Marco Coulter, TheInfoPro's research director.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them WHAT to do and they will
surprise you with their ingenuity.
