With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.
Today's economy is especially hard on small businesses. How does your small business keep revenue coming in when your customers are spending less? How do you attract new customers in a cost efficient manner? How do you protect your businesses' valuable information assets without making a huge technology investment?
Email has become THE mission critical application for businesses large and small. As a growing business continually striving to increase productivity, collaboration and corporate success, you understand the important role that Microsoft Exchange Server plays in any profitable business. Small and mid-size businesses alike see the productivity benefits of utilizing an enterprise-class solution but since many do not have the financial or human resources to bring it in house, more and more of them are turning to a hosted solution.

- Disaster recovery and business continuity
Microsoft Exchange Server has been a crucial technological breakthrough in advanced corporate communication systems. Companies who utilize an enterprise-class email server like Exchange believe that email is mission critical, and value the productivity it enables. But an in-house migration to Exchange 2007 from an earlier version of Exchange or another email program will not be an easy task. Complexity, time and cost issues loom large over the IT department and are causing IT directors to search for an alternative solution.
