Retarus Press Release:
Retarus Again Listed as a Sample Vendor for “Enterprise-Level Cloud Faxing” in Gartner Hype Cycle
Cloud Fax Services are replacing fax server infrastructures
Munich, 30.08.2016 // Gartner’s recent “Hype Cycle for Imaging and Print Services, 2016”* report once again lists global messaging service provider Retarus as a “Sample Vendor” for “Enterprise-Level Cloud Faxing”. In the annual trend review, Gartner’s IT analysts describe the development life cycles of printing technologies, software and services, which assist IT decision-makers in their search for the appropriate solutions that can fulfill their specific requirements. Gartner classifies “Enterprise-Level Cloud Faxing” as being on the “Slope of Enlightenment”**. This means that they expect the demand for Cloud Fax Services to rise substantially over the next two years.
Gartner’s analysts*** consider the scalability of Cloud Fax Services to be particularly beneficial. “Shifting fax communication to the cloud is the logical progression for a technology which has become highly sophisticated in today’s almost exclusively IP-based global communication networks. Meanwhile, our customers have certainly started to take a more strategic view, concentrating on the impacted business processes. Driven by compliance and regulation, global standardization and tough quality requirements, communication is increasingly becoming business-critical,” explains Johannes Hecker, Chief Operating Officer at the Retarus Group.
“We assist you as a partner in your digitization plans by not only providing standard solutions and interfaces, but also services which are flexible and integrate perfectly into your business environments. The fact that Gartner has once again listed us as a ‘Sample Vendor’ we believe reaffirms our strategy and market position.” As global experts in information logistics, Retarus is equipped with many years of experience in the field of cloud messaging services.

(**) According to Gartner, a technology reaches the „Slope of Enlightenment” when it is increasingly deployed to provide benefit. An understanding has developed for the advantages, the practical implementation and the limitations of the technology. Moreover, second and third generation development has taken place and is on offer. Companies open to new innovation increasingly take advantage of this technology and integrate it into their business processes.
