1. CeBIT 2010: The highlights
GROUP presented two solutions in Hall 2 at CeBIT this year: email
management and cloud computing. Both topics proved to be real visitor
magnets with the Email, Archiving and Administration Division at GROUP
Technologies attracting considerable interest in the areas of email
archiving and email encryption. The increasingly acute legal issues
surrounding email and the rising demand for data protection were the
primary concerns for these visitors to the GROUP stand. iQ.Suite
KeyManager has been positioned as an appropriate addition to the
iQ.Suite encryption family and the first pilot customers have signed up
for this new solution for certificate and key management.
Cloud computing was another leading topic for the IT sector in Hannover. Many companies will see the orientation of their IT infrastructure defined by terms such as Software as a Service and on-demand applications. GROUP Live, the Division for Cloud Computing and Platform-as-a-Service, was represented for the first time at CeBIT and introduced its flexible cloud platform. Numerous potential customers and representatives from politics and business enthused about the innovative solution for cost-efficient operation, management and monitoring of application environments. GROUP's PaaS offer was awarded the IT INNOVATION Award by the Mittelstand Initiative at a live event held on the Thursday during CeBIT.

6. iQ.Suite Tips and Tricks for Lotus Domino: Filtering emails with an identical sender and recipient
This has doubtless already happened to you: You receive an email which
has your own address as the apparent sender. Emails with an identical
sender and recipient are often spam or are not meaningful messages.
It is possible to set up a formula rule to filter them out and solve the problem. Read here in the current edition of our Tips and Tricks for exact instructions on how to do this.
7. Exchange/SMTP corner: Backup-optimised data storage for iQ.Suite Store
The benefits of our archiving solution iQ.Suite Store are convincing: it
uses a defined set of rules to archive business relevant emails in a
central store on a time-controlled basis, thus relieving the strain on
It also makes sense to separate content that must be archived from unwanted data and to sort and structure stored emails. An intelligent method of classification allows content to be separated into different archive "pots". This improves response times and saves time generally throughout the processes.
iQ.Suite Store 5.0 now offers the option of cutting back-up times by structuring data by certain criteria such as "year/month/day". The following article describes how you can accomplish this sorting exercise.
