Media Firm Adds Business Value, Avoids $500,000 by Moving Email System Online
Scripps Networks Interactive (SNI) is a leading lifestyle media company, developing popular TV programming such as the Food Network, Home and Garden Television, and related websites and magazines. When parent company E.W. Scripps spun off SNI as a separate company, SNI had to set up its own email messaging system in eight months. To meet the deadline and provide low-cost, high-quality messaging services to its 2,000 employees, SNI subscribed to the Microsoft Business Productivity Online Standard Suite. SNI migrated all 2,000 mailboxes to Microsoft Exchange Online in just three weekends and obtained a full-featured messaging system for one-third the cost of a partner-hosted solution. In addition to realizing lower capital and operational costs, SNI no longer has to worry about email infrastructure.
