Recently, John Fontana, a writer for Network World, wrote an article called "Exchange 2007 will shake up messaging."

Richard Bliss, VP of Marketing for GWAVA, comments, "At first glance, you might believe that this is an article extolling the virtues of Microsoft Exchange 2007, but on closer inspection you come to realize that it is the exact opposite. The author states: 'Corporate users who migrate to Exchange 2007 will face mandatory infrastructure changes that ... could add complexity and costs to their networks.' It is as if Microsoft has just told their entire install base that their investment in a Microsoft future was for naught! This article lays the groundwork for some of the most compelling reasons companies will find to leave the Microsoft platform and begin, in earnest, to look for an alternative."

Bliss' blog on offers unique insight into the current position and future direction of Exchange 2007 and its user base. He draws conclusions based on the information given by Fontana and helps all of us GroupWise enthusiasts understand the strength and positioning of GroupWise as the #1 alternative to Exchange. It wouldn't be surprising to see many of our Exchange brethren converting over to GroupWise in the near future. Click here ( to see what all the fuss is about.
