Email’s Renaissance – It’s Time to Expect More
Contrary to popular opinion, email is not only still relevant—it’s growing. For email to stay relevant for the next fifty years, email providers need to step up and close a yawning innovation gap. Today’s demanding consumer expects more from their email providers: enterprise-strength privacy and security, cutting-edge functionality, all delivered via elegant, seamlessly integrated tools, anywhere, anytime.
With this backdrop, we are excited to release “Email’s Renaissance”. This paper outlines changing consumer behaviors, attitudes, and habits around email, key challenges facing email providers and the benefits of leveraging the open source community to accelerate innovation.
At Synacor, we believe that a collaborative community that harnesses shared knowledge and expertise can benefit the email and collaboration marketplace. Many of the benefits include:
Product innovation. This new path forward seeks to reignite and harness the power of collaboration to create a flexible, scalable, and secure email and collaboration platform filling in the gaps in modern communications infrastructure.
Security and Privacy. Consumers demand unassailable privacy and security in email. Providing this hard and would require proprietary email providers to build new architectures. By harnessing the collective wisdom of the open source community, email providers can focus on this critical task related to security.
Operation and Cloud Expertise. Leveraging the cloud, whether it your private cloud, a public cloud or Synacor’s managed services, allows for increased choice, improved efficiency and lower costs. At the end user level, efficient cloud architectures provide increased reliability, an improved cross device experience and faster responsiveness.
Migration capabilities. Migrating email services is difficult work that demands a partner you can trust. Any organization looking to upgrade their email services demands no downtime and turnkey capabilities that seamlessly maintain all data, contacts, calendars, and more.
A renaissance in email services is upon us, as the power of community collaboration is capable of building something much greater than the sum of its parts. Learn how the collaborative approach to development is reinvigorating email offerings and injecting new life into email and communications tools.
