 This webcast will feature a detailed review of the Zimbra Collaboration Solution (ZCS) architecture, end-user and administrator features and capabilities and system scalability and performance metrics followed by a real world case study by Eastern Illinois University.  The speakers will be Viral Kadakia, Director Marketing and Product Management, Zimbra and Greg DeYoung, Associate Director for Campus Infrastructure Technology for Eastern Illinois University.

The Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) is an open source solution for enterprise, service provider, academic, and government environments; offering administrators and their end-users unmatched benefits . Zimbra is an open source server and client software for messaging and collaboration - email, group calendaring, contacts, and web document management and authoring. 

The Zimbra server is available for Mac OS X and other platforms. The Zimbra Web 2.0 Ajax client runs on Safari, Firefox and IE, and features easy integration / mash-ups of web portals, business applications, and VoIP using web services. Additionally, the ZCS includes support for two-way synchronization with offline clients like Apple Address Book, iCal and Mail, Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Evolution. ZCS 4.5 also features an Ajax administrative interface plus full scripting tools, support for standards-based APIs (IMAP / POP / iCal/CalDAV) and Zimbra Mobile, the first integrated offering for open source with no need for third party software or additional servers for most devices (Treo 650, 700, Motorola Q, Nokia E61 and more). Zimbra also features Zimbra Desktop, a rich offline-capable client that allows users to have the same AJAX-based collaboration experience as offered by Zimbra's popular web-only client.
