In the Wheelhouse: Cloud First. Mail Next. Customer Last.

When it comes to the future of email, we need to all be on the same page. But are we even reading the same book?

steve pitcherWritten by Steve Pitcher

Last week, I was on a webcast for IBM's forthcoming email product, IBM Mail Next. While on the webcast (and any webcast actually), I was also plugged into a number of social media outlets, Skype chats, and the like in order to discuss the content of the presentation with industry peers and get a feel for their thoughts and insights into what IBM deems as the future of email.


I first wrote about Mail Next after IBM Connect 2014 in January. My sentiment at the time was entirely positive.
