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. We’d also like to thank Google for hosting us and Binary Tree and Ferris Research for their substantial contributions. Members of the audience represented organizations with 250 to 5000+ users, and businesses drove in from all over the Southeast.

3 Ways Your Enterprise Can Use Google Sites

Intranets, team collaboration sites and document archives powered by Google 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.
