19 March, 2013 - San Francisco, California and Berlin, Germany. CommuniGate Systems, the leader in secure, super-efficient, web and mobile Unified Messaging technology have published an infographic showing the rapid shifts from desktop email to the use of Webmail, Mobile email, and Instant Messaging (IM) in businesses.
The Infographic is based on market analyst’s data and usage statistics from CommuniGate Systems global user base of 190 million accounts. Not surprisingly, in the last 5 years the use of Mobile Smartphone and tablet based email clients on these devices has sky rocketed; the number of emails opened on these devices first now even outnumbers Enterprise email client titans like Microsoft Outlook. Other interesting findings revealed that today’s new workforce is more likely to use Webmail versus desktop clients, and Instant Messaging for collaborative communications versus email.
The Infographic data shows that today more than 80% of email traffic is retrieved using the IMAP protocol, and more than 72% of all email is now accessed from either Webmail or mobile email clients. The data also suggests the number of Instant Messaging accounts will continue rise dramatically from 1.6 billion in 2012 to 3.5 billion in 2015, and the share of those IM accounts used in businesses environments will rise to 44%.
These trends could have serious capacity and performance implications for hosting providers, especially those in high-density Virtualization environments. The infographic shows how the CommuniGate Systems’ open-source cPanel Adaptor Kit and CommuniGate Pro software can be used to mitigate capacity impacts, by more than doubling the capacity of a typical VPS server, supporting IMAP email, Webmail, mobile email and secure Instant Messaging.
"Being able to more than double our capacity while adding new features is not only incredible but just gave us additional room to grow without new investments", says Roberto Minoletti, CEO of GuruCube Srl, "We have been looking for ways to capitalize on the rapid rise of Mobile email and the need for secure, private Cloud Instant Messaging. We now have much greater flexibility in order to create new services that meet the new market demands and fit our business model."
"We have found that the shift in the workforce in the last 5 years from PC based communications tools to web and mobile is far more advanced than initially thought.", says Scott Stonham, VP Marketing at CommuniGate Systems, "Many of the people we spoke to grew up on consumer based Webmail and IM from Yahoo or Hotmail, and as they moved into the workplace feel more comfortable using Web technology, and many have never even configured desktop clients on their computers.”
