Google Apps on Ulitzer As Cloud Sherpas continues to help businesses and organizations adopt Google Apps, we have found that many customers, regardless of location or industry, request a common set of additional management controls and end user features for their Google Apps environment. Until now, the response to most of these inquiries was that organizations had to develop custom applications that work with Google APIs to achieve their goals.

Great Conversations with CIOs and IT Leaders at Leaving Lotus

Thank you to everyone who came out for Leaving Lotus last week. Your interest and participation at the event is a clear indication to us of the growing demand for alternative solutions in the enterprise.
