There’s a wide variety of interesting tidbits in the short survey, but the one that should resonate with disaster recovery planners is the question related to the criticality of email.  90% of respondents indicated that the importance of email as a communications tools in their organization will be at least the same or greater in 2011.

If e-mail is that critical as a business tool, it’s important to ensure it’s a part of the disaster recovery planning for your organization.  What’s more, ensuring that protecting the entire messaging ecosystem from end-to-end including the mailbox servers as well as related services such as mobile messaging systems (BES, etc.) is paramount.
