At the ninth annual event, attendees discussed key features for the Zimbra development roadmap, participated in deep dives on the recently launched Zimbra 8.8 collaboration platform, and shared innovative ideas from across the community that drive customer adoption of Zimbra.
During the event, the Zimbra community identified key features driving the future of collaboration across email, calendaring, chat and more. Recurring themes included solutions that are cloud-friendly, feature modern and easily customizable user interfaces, and automatically address user traffic.
"We see growing interest from enterprise users for alternatives to their existing groupware solution,” said Hans-Joerg Happel, CTO and Co-Founder of audriga. “With planned features, Zimbra is well-positioned to address market needs and Zimbra Forum France was a good opportunity to discuss how we can help more customers make a switch to Zimbra."
“Zimbra Forum France was compelling and helpful. Zimbra showed its 2018 roadmap including the upcoming release, Zimbra 8.8, patches, Zimbra Talk v2 and Drive 2,” said Stefano Pampaloni, CEO at Seacom. “We’re pleased that Zimbra is focused on meeting partner needs and understanding the differences of each market we serve with an open and customer-focused approach.”

The next generation of enterprise email needs to include these same features.”
Now in its ninth year, Zimbra Forum France followed the commercial launch of Zimbra 8.8, which debuted new user experience features such as Zimbra Drive for enterprise-level file sync and sharing, and Zimbra Chat. The Network Edition features tech stack enhancements including real-time backup, ActiveSync across mobile and desktop, hierarchical storage management that enables customers to move archival data to less expensive storage solutions, and improved delegated admin functionality.
