WHITEPAPER: “Total Economic Impact of Microsoft Exchange 2010”

image In October 2009, Microsoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the total economic impact and potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Microsoft Exchange 2010. Microsoft Exchange 2010 is the newest release of Microsoft’s messaging and collaborative server software solution featuring email, voicemail, calendaring, contacts, and tasks; support for mobile and Web-based access to information; and support for data storage. This study illustrates the financial impact of deploying Microsoft Exchange 2010 for a retail and distribution organization of 1,500 employees and $450 million in annual revenue.

In conducting in-depth interviews with nine existing customers, Forrester found that these companies achieved cost avoidance of storage, reduced cost of high availability, cost avoidance in voicemail, savings in backup systems, fewer help desk calls, cost avoidance of mobility, enhanced communication security, and simplified compliance and legal discovery, among other benefits.

Today, Forrester released “Total Economic Impact” study which concludes organizations can expect a payback period of less than six months with Exchange 2010.
