MessageStats works across legacy Microsoft® Exchange Server and newly implemented platforms, including on-premises Exchange, Office 365™ and Lync® Server, to help you reduce the complexity of email and unified Microsoft Exchange reporting and analysis. With it, you can prepare for Exchange migrations, leverage email data mining to extract business value, determine Lync usage, enhance operational efficiency, achieve top messaging performance, defend service level agreements (SLAs), adhere to compliance demands and reach your security and business goals. Use the new Business Insights component to enhance and defend your organization with sophisticated messaging intelligence that’s easy to understand. Provide both IT staff members and business users with what they need to meet their objectives.

Benefit from these key features with MessageStats:
Broad intelligence 
Collect intelligence on your entire messaging infrastructure, including Microsoft® Exchange, BlackBerry®, Lync® Server (and predecessor OCS), Outlook® web app, Windows Phone®, Microsoft Online (Office 365™), Sendmail/Postfix and Archive Manager

Platform data and reporting 
Gather usage data about platforms (such as Lync Server) to determine if you’re fully utilizing the technology – and help maximize your ROI. Create usage reports for billing and chargebacks

Message-mining intelligence 
Retrieve data regarding trends and other critical information that’s trapped in your message system. Transform data into intelligence that improves and protects your organization.
