The IBM award-winning Permessa Email Control provides comprehensive and easy-to-use reports, email tracking and in-depth log analysis for IBM Domino and Microsoft Exchange.

  • Reduces IBM Domino and Microsoft Exchange operating costs by up to 40%
  • Reduces IBM Domino and Microsoft Exchange log analysis time by up to 95% with comprehensive reports
  • Provides detailed actionable recommendations that can lower costs and improve service quality

  • Allows for customization and enforcement of email policies for performance, compliance and abuse

For IBM Domino DAOS-enabled environments, GBS uncovers opportunities for even more savings. Just turning on DAOS does not mean that DAOS is being used optimally. GBS knows how to find additional savings. Often, adjusting a few critical settings can make a big difference.

The IBM award committee recognized Permessa Email Control because it redefines the IT tool category by answering IT's question, “What should I do?” On average 4% of all messages typically generate 80% of the cost and problems. Permessa Email Control finds those messages and their senders. It suggests specific policies that have minimal impact on the other 96% of messages. With this email management tool, IT managers and messaging administrators no longer need to pour over countless logs and traffic reports to fix problems, lower costs and improve service.

Permessa Email Control uses predictive messaging analysis technology to analyze how the system is being used and make specific actionable recommendations based on many years of experience with leading enterprises.

The net result is that IT managers and messaging administrators typically can use the reports to reduce log analysis time by 95% and can reduce overall operating costs by as much as 40%, while improving service levels and reducing information overload.
