While Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Docs capture much of the Google Apps
spotlight, it seems only appropriate to shed light on Google Sites —
another key component of the enterprise suite. An exploration of the
discussions on Twitter reveals a community abuzz with the innovation and
functionality of Google Sites.
Google Sites is an enterprise wiki that all Google Apps users can benefit
