Report: Demand Continues To Grow For E-mail Archiving

Messaging Pipeline

The worldwide e-mail archiving market this year is expected to reach $796 million by the end of 2006, and grow almost tenfold to $7.8 billion by 2010, according to recent estimates by messaging market research firm

The key drivers for the growth include regulatory compliance, storage management and internal policy management, according to Radicati. Internal policy management is typically implemented to ensure that sensitive data is not sent to unauthorized users. And along with compliance with regulations that require access to past e-mails for auditing purposes, e-discovery for litigation case management is also a key driver for e-mail archiving.

In the storage management area, e-mail archiving is seen as way offload messages from the messaging server into an interactive, easily manageable archival store. The analyst firm said the typical corporate e-mail account receives about 16 Mbytes of data per day and by 2010, that amount will grow to more than 21 Mbytes per user per day

Other growing trends, according to Radicati, include archiving products that monitor other communications including instant messaging, scanned documents, faxes, ERP output and portal content.
