Real Business Value from Cloud Computing and Google Apps 

Working with business owners and executives, we are often asked to demonstrate the real benefits of cloud computing and Google Apps. Competitors and IT staff with a vested interest in the status quo often claim that cloud solutions and Google Apps are no better than on-premise and hosted solutions. How can we convince them otherwise?

To answer this question, Google engaged 100 Google Apps customers, ranging in size from 20 to 1 million users, to quantify Google Apps' value proposition. In this session, we will review the responses from Google Apps users in their words and experience.

Beyond looking at how these businesses evaluate the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), we will present their calculated savings in terms defined by the customers themselves.

  • Global Teamwork
  • Innovation
  • Mobility
  • Acquisitions
  • IT Cost Reduction / ECO Stewardship

The session includes live demonstrations and plenty of time for Q&A. If you are considering moving to cloud-based services, or already planning to do so, this session is for you!
