Cisco Business Edition 7000

Based on the business model, this likely wouldn’t serve a small or start up company that doesn’t need all the features and can support itself on a more economical infrastructure. For a large business with multiple locations, this product is well suited. It offers a lot of features and integrations for collaboration as well as the support of a known company.

Zimbra Email & Collaboration

Zimbra is great for an email system for a medium or large organization with appropriate IT staffing. The system is easy to use for end-users, and has a fantastic web interface. Unfortunately, it is overly complex, when considering staffing requirements and price, when compared with Office 365 or Google Apps for smaller organizations. For other education customers, it is hard to compete with Microsoft and Google providing their services for "Free" now though

Cons

Cisco Business Edition 7000

  • Licensing should be easy and collaborative.
  • Management interface should be provided with redundancy.
  • I've came across difficulties while I installed Windows server on BE6K. It's hard to gather Windows server keys.

Zimbra Email & Collaboration

  • The password change is not activated when you access by IMAP, Pop3 or Exchange sync. You have to know that the password change is required and you must go to the website to do so.
  • The management of mail rules should have more checking options.
  • There should be more applications compatible with Zimbra, the ones that appear in the Zimlets.

Overall, we were satisfied with the implementation. We perhaps should have spent more time consulting with Zimbra or others regarding best practices but as we got to know the system better we were able to make changes relatively easily after the fact.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Business Edition 7000

MS Teams again is an app hosted on cloud and earlier on box like BE and I feel hardware of Cisco is better and support from TAC is way better than anybody.

We selected Zimbra because it has a lower cost in the market, offers more development features for its open source, has a very easy to use interface and adjusts to the needs of the company.

Return on Investment

Cisco Business Edition 7000

  • High ROI, the communication platform provides all the necessary that is required employees to be always connected wherever they are. This improves companies overall performance and certainly income.
  • Simplified maintenance and user friendly interfaces. The platform has all the admin tool to make support easy and efficient.
  • Employees are enabled with all the Unified Communication services and they are more productive which again improves overall company's performance.

  • Since all of our ROI studies and strategies are performed at the corporate level, I'm really not sure what positive or negative impacts Zimbra has had on our overall business objectives. I can say that at least one positive impact it has on my business objectives, in the medical record department, is the ability to be as paperless as possible.
