So when a solution that you know is good and spend your working day enthusing about gets a great product review, it feels especially good.
A professional approach to the burgeoning PST issue
Not only were we recognized by Gartner in the Enterprise Information Archiving Magic Quadrant report for our ‘solid PST management capabilities’, we are especially proud of having just achieved the prestigious MSExchange.org Gold Award, following a product review by industry professional and Microsoft MVP Steve Goodman. Steve is a respected Exchange professional, published author and speaker with over 16 years of extensive Microsoft knowledge and experience.
In the past six months we’ve seen a four-fold increase in demand for PST Enterprise, our solution for managing, migrating and eliminating PST files. As companies look to upgrade to the latest versions of Exchange and Office 365, the burgeoning issue of dealing with legacy PST files has become a particularly pressing problem for many organizations. Steve Goodman recognizes this, and his review evaluates the effectiveness of our PST Enterprise solution as a candidate for providing a professional approach to addressing these PST challenges.
It was very encouraging that he shares our view that the free tools available are inadequate for larger organizations trying to address the myriad of issues involved in migrating PSTs to Office 365 or other environments.
We were also pleased that he acknowledged the many benefits of our solution, including for example the non-invasive install of our client-server model which he agrees makes more sense than a server-agent model. He praised the ability of PST Enterprise to leverage Outlook directly for data uploads to Exchange, because it eliminates the painful bottleneck of moving data only through central servers and the need for special firewall rules or permissions.
“A product that should be top of your list for evaluation”
We were delighted that Steve Goodman’s thorough review rates PST Enterprise 4.8 out of 5. He concludes that it’s “a product that should be top of your list for evaluation”, adding that enterprises would “find much better ROI versus using free products” when considering the overall cost of migrations.
