Hello IT150 students!

Many of you note that learning about the different Google tools is one of the coolest things about this class. What you probably haven’t realized is that we have only sampled a very tiny portion of the applications available from Google. However, although Google applications are popular among end users, they still have a long way to go in terms of cracking the enterprise market. Most corporations are still hesitant to adopt Google apps (Have you wondered why Carlow decided to implement the new email system using Microsoft Exchange even though Gmail is available for free for educational institutions?)

Hopefully that trend will begin to change as Google has been working very hard on meeting enterprise needs. Here are some of the recent developments targeting enterprise clients. Take a tour!

  1. The attached link is interesting! I think the myonelogin sounded so cool, something I could definitely use since I have trouble keeping track of my passwords! Gstepone also sounds cool, but I don’t know how I would use it yet. Do you know why Carlow chose to use Microsoft Exchange instead of Gmail??

  2. Good question Bekah. As we will discuss in class, many factors must be considered when an organization selects an IT system. Please remember to raise this question as we move along. We should definitely discuss it in class!
