Sonasoft would like to take a few minutes to thank everyone who attended and organized the CETPA 2011 Conference held last week in Long Beach, California from November 8 to November 11, 2011.

We are very grateful that Sonasoft’s Director of Sales, Mike Khanna, was invited to participate in the California Educational Technology Professionals Association (CETPA ) Conference Session on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 titled, “TCO: Considerations for Technology and Systems Acquisition ”.

This session also featured Sonasoft’s key partner, Chris Beyne, Product Manager, Digital School as well as Brian Dake, Director of Information Technology, Napa County Office of Education (NCOE) . Warren Williams, a former President of CETPA and retired Assistant Superintendent of Information and Technology Services for Grossmont Union High School District in La Mesa, CA will be the session moderator.

One of the highlights of the aforesaid session was when the participants realized the diminishing economic returns that cloud / SaaS after breaking a critical user mass.  At one point, school districts could save significant amounts of money by performing some of their IT services in-house, such as email archiving, provided that they had a reliable and robust solution.

The following day, Thursday, November 10, 2011, Sonasoft was present at the CETPA Exhibit thanks to Sonasoft’s partner and CETPA host, Digital School at CETPA booth no. 425.  It was great to meet so many IT professionals from nationwide school districts and really get to know their needs for email archiving.  It was reassuring to see the interest they had for our email archiving solution with its enterprise features such as monitoring and robust search features as well as our unique feature of multiple domain archiving.  (That is if school districts have two or more domains, as one for administrators, one for teachers, and several different domains per school, our email archiving solution, SonaVault, will be able to archive them all into one easy-to-use archive.)

Many IT Directors were very interested in our Free Email Archiving for School Districts Promotion which will continue until December 15, 2011.

In addition to meeting new professionals, making some friends, and getting our name out, we also got some good PR from the event. You can read our press release, “Sonasoft to Participate in CETPA 2011 Conference to Highlight Email Archiving for School Districts“.

Thanks, everyone. We hope to attend the next CETPA Conference as a full member of CETPA.
