More Growth in the IM Market

The Radicati Group issued a press release yesterday discussing their new study on various forms of messaging. Instant messaging figures prominently in the report as does email in its various incarnations. From the release:

In regards to instant messaging (IM), the study shows strong growth in both corporate and consumer IM use. The IM Management segment of the market, which develops products to manage, archive and secure IM systems is poised for particularly strong growth, growing from $39 million in 2005 to $118 million in 2009.
This market is growing a bit slower than people were predicting a few years ago but it's coming along pretty nicely. Also, here's some more news on the compliance side for very large companies.
