CeBIT Fair - Quick Review

I'm just back from the CeBIT fair in Hannover, Germany.


The CeBIT fair is good as motivator - sometimes you find something extremely interesting, but most of the times you look at who/what is progressing, what companies are flashy/healthy and what the upcoming trends are.


This years trends are very visible, despite the loss of 25% exhibitors and 20% visitors, the exhibitors still complain about all the youngsters demanding chocolate, but the trends show - environmental awareness is growing, internet services are more and more important, still young and vibrant, and the third major area is security.


The fun thing about this, is that both Pegasus Mail and Mercury MTA appeals, to all three areas - which is something we should piggyback ride on. Mercury is extremely lean on resources, it's very secure, we can use wordings like "intelligent". The only area where Mercury needs to be smarter, is SPAM treatment. Lukas modules are all fine, but soon it is time they are interwoven per default and adapts to collective learning. We're fighting against appliance with this, and the appliance is a black box - self adaptive etc, and Mercury can be that too - it would in the next year be *the killer combination* if SpamHalter+GrayWall+ClamWall+Mercury became one product, f.ex. with NOD32, who had the most interesting sessions (Symantec wasn't even there...)
