  2. 2. Case Study: Google Apps Case Study: Google Security and Compliance University of Notre Dame’s outdated email system was not living up to the reliability Fordham University’s email servers were being crushed under the growing volume of standards expected by the campus community, and no longer adequately supported spam, slowing email delivery to a halt and impacting performance and productivity for requirements for efficient, dependable communication. Furthermore, its functions their 30,000 students, faculty, and staff. They wanted a flexible solution that would not stopped at email – and the school wanted a solution for campus-wide calendaring require any onsite software or hardware, was easy to deploy, and required minimal ongoing and scheduling. Students were increasingly unsatisfied, and appealed to university maintenance for their small IT team. Google Apps security and compliance products, leadership for more communications functionality. By switching to Apps they were able powered by Postini, now enables Fordham University to focus on academics instead of to measurably upgrade their communication infrastructure and provide students with spam. Since implementing Google Message Filtering, the performance of their email sys- easy, effective tools like calendaring and document collaboration while cutting tem has greatly improved while lowering the number of calls to the university’s help desk expenses. After migrating their 15,000 students and 150,000 alumni they were able to by 99% and also reducing the amount of time IT staff spends monitoring and maintaining realize $1.5 million in savings, reduce calls to the campus help desk by 20%, and increase spam-related issues. Because Google Message Filtering requires no internal hardware or student satisfaction by 36%. software, Fordham’s IT staff has been able to focus on keeping its network and systems functioning properly rather than on fighting fires. “The wealth of tools that Google Apps offers, and Google’s ability to provide a cost- effective robust service, made us all wish we had chosen to move this direction sooner.” “The amount of time we spend with the Google service is almost non-existent. In fact, – Katie Rose it’s so effortless that we only occasionally need to log in to the administrative interface Program Manager for Enterprise Initiatives, Office of Information Technologies to make modifications.” University of Notre Dame –Jason Benedict Information Security Officer Fordham University Case Study: Google Enterprise Search Case Study: Google Earth and Maps Vanderbilt University needed to provide more relevant results for the growing number Researching ancient cultures and land from thousands of miles away can be difficult, of users of its website. While an existing solution had been in place, it just wasn’t meeting especially when working with 30 international researchers. The Digital Archaeological the requirement for greater relevancy as well as scale. In such a knowledge focused Atlas of the Holy Land (DAAHL) project – led by professors and researchers at ASU and institution, providing fast, relevant search results was an essential requirement of such an UCSD – solved this problem by using Google’s mapping products when creating their important public interface as the university website. Moreover, coverage was key; as part digital atlas of archaeological sites in Israel, Palestine, Jordan, southern Lebanon, Syria, of the vendor selection process, the Google Search Appliance (GSA) returned five times and the Sinai Peninsula. Using Google Maps and the Google Earth API, tens of thousands more documents than the next closest supplier. Within a short time of deploying the GSA, of recorded archaeological sites from the region – from remote prehistoric periods to the users were able to quickly access more relevant results. early 20th century – are entered into a comprehensive database along with site maps, photographs, and artifacts. Researchers and academics can access, search, and explore “The GSA has not only delivered results to our users that are both rapid and relevant, this data in 3D with a time-perspective, all enabled by Google Earth and Maps. but has also been an easy to configure solution with minimal impact on staffing”. –Melanie Moran “Archaeologists study the past by looking at human culture across space, time, and form.
