As the old year winds down a sense of hope arises that the hints and inklings of new products and services that have been leaking out over the past months may actually materialise in the New Year. Some of them are products that vendors have solidly promised and assigned release dates to, some are part of vaguely marked road maps and some are simply pipedreams fuelled by persistent rumours. Others are services or intriguing situations that could arise. Regardless, here are some of the ones that have caught our eye and that we hope turn out to be as eye catching in reality.
Postini to Google Apps Migration
Google’s Postini customers buying Message Security and Message Discovery will shift during 2013 to Google Apps and Google Apps Vault, as the services are consolidated under the Google Apps brand. Email security and protection services are incorporated in Google Apps now, and that’s where Google wants to migrate its Postini Services customers. This consolidation will set up Google Apps to better take on other cloud based productivity suites such as Office 365.
