Key Message: Google has a solid plan for expanding our Enterprise offerings and is fully committed to this vision. Talking Points: Google Apps today. We have our offering of Google Apps today that we have been discussing. This runs in the Google cloud. We are working to expand Google Apps in 2 ways. First, deepening the functionality of our existing applications. This means better formatting in Google Docs, more capabilities in Sites, better collaboration across the products, etc. We are also working to expand our archiving and discovery capabilities to cover all of our offerings in order to provide a complete compliance and discovery solution. Your Apps - Building the platform. Google App Engine is a platform for you to build and deploy your own applications on top of Google's infrastructure, integrated with your Google Apps accounts. This will be a continued value for our customers. Other Apps - Apps Marketplace. This forum allows customers to easily purchase additional applications for Google Apps that are integrated with the product. They all have single sign-on integration, and many support integration with email, calendar, and documents as well. APIs for integration. We understand that some systems will remain on premise for a while, so we have built robust APIs to make sure that you can integrate your systems with ours. We will continue to invest in deepening those capabilities. Improving access technologies. Our vision of web applications relies on solid web access capabilities. That is why we are investing in Android, Chrome, and Chrome OS. We think this direction provides a powerful model for enterprise technology in the years to come. We are building a better way to do Enterprise technology. Transition: I always like to finish up by talking about experiences from real customers.
Google Apps Connector integrates the Google Apps messaging suite with BlackBerry Enterprise Server, giving mobile users the ability to use built-in BlackBerry applications to access their Google Apps email, calendar, and contacts. Administrators use the same BlackBerry tools they already know for securing and managing BlackBerry devices. This quarter we launched an updated version of the connector adding: simple auditing support for read, spam, trash, delete operations. Support for BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0.2. Support for BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express. Support for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Server 2008 SP2. Improved Dynamic GAL synchronization. Improvements to some calendar synchronization components to provide enhanced robustness and accuracy.
- IT systems are slow to evolve - Cloud computing provides the opportunity to build a whole new set of apps that cycle faster with IT and integrate info in ways that could never be done before
