Spanning Align to Simplify Application Selection, Implementation for Google
ATLANTA, Georgia — November 1, 2011 — Seven independent software vendors,
whose products are among the most heavily installed applications in the
Google Apps Marketplace, today announced a series of business and technology
partnerships that are designed to make it easier for Google Apps users to
select and implement complementary business applications.
The partnership network — a first among Google Apps Marketplace vendors —

real-time conversation. What I find odd, however, is the fact that a leader
of another large company can call for the “eradication” of Lotus Notes to
his partner community, but it was David Hoff’s “Top 10 Reasons I Left
Lotus Notes for Google Apps” that sparked the ire of the Lotus Notes
faithful. We clearly hit a nerve here and wanted to take an opportunity to
respond to some of the feedback.
First of all, let me say that Cloud Sherpas... (more)
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.
Today Cloud Sherpas announces the start of a beta program for SherpaTools for
Google Apps, a new platform that enhances the functionality ... (more)
