E-mail archiving a problem in Ireland too

Siliconrepublic.com posts a story today entitled “Irish firms in email archive crisis” which simply reports that companies in Ireland struggle with the same issues of archiving e-mail as here in the U.S. and everywhere else in the world.

Two quotes:

“People assume email is on the backup tape. The backup tape is not an archive option, it’s a recovery option.”

“…some firms print emails and then rescan them into an electronic document management system to save filing cabinet space, an unnecessary process if proper email archiving is in place.”
