Google Apps combines the Docs environment with e-mail, calendaring, website hosting, collaboration software, cloud and e-discovery tools all wrapped up in Google’s secure, Internet-based environment. Over 4 million businesses use Google Apps – should your company be one of them? In this workshop you’ll find out how your business can take advantage of the free tools and how much it might cost to implement Google Apps across your entire enterprise. We’ll compare Apps to Microsoft’s product suite and you’ll be able to better decide if your company could join thousands of others who’ve made the switch to Google Apps (or stay with the thousands who didn’t). While the focus of this workshop will be Google Apps for Business, we will also compare Google’s offerings for Government, Education and the Non-profit sector. This workshop will be taught by Doug Allen, President of Allen's Consulting. Lunch will be provided.
