Google Product Announcements and Enterprise Acceptance

At the Angelbeat Birmingham Spring 2012 seminar, Google spoke about BBVA Compass (second largest bank in Alabama, fourth largest in Texas, assets more than one trillion dollars) standardizing on Google Apps. After hearing this presentation, I have been closely monitoring Google’s enterprise/product offerings. Recently they have made several announcements that are individually significant, and collectively really important to IT professionals. Let me summarize below.

First, Google Drive is a great cloud-based file storage option, providing an alternative to Dropbox, Microsoft’s SkyDrive and Apple’s iCloud offerings. It works fine by itself, for any type of digital storage, with an obvious and seamless fit with Google Apps. With newly available offline functionality with Apps, Google now has a complete suite of web-based business applications and storage options that will give Microsoft’s Office365/SkyDrive a run for its money.

Second, Google’s Nexus line of smartphones and tablets, offering Priligy the latest in Android functionality, are getting very favorable reviews. These are likely to be big hits for back-to-school and the Christmas season. Google’s biggest challenge here probably won’t come from customer/end user acceptance. Instead it will be managing the emerging channel conflict between Google-owned brands (Nexus and Motorola) competing with Google Android partners (HTC, Samsung and others).

Third, Google’s chrome browser is now the market share leader, surpassing IE. While browsing and search are related but distinct user decisions/options, this is obviously a big strategic accomplishment. Winning the browser war undoubtedly helps Google preserve its dominance in search.

Forth, Google’s Chromebooks are now well-positioned for enterprise acceptance, given the complementary growth of Google Apps and Chrome Browser in the workplace. Combined with attractive monthly pricing, Chromebooks are a viable thin client platform for organizations who increasingly rely upon Google products and/or cloud computing. bupropion 300 mg lumigan eyelash growth megalis 25mg amitriptyline hcl letrozole gyno prilosec 10mg buy apcalis more azithromycin 250 mg quickness amlodipine prices modalert no prescription information baclofen 10mg zithromax online in canada information generac bactrim ds10 price of nexium 30 in united states 5-htp piracetam purchase sulpitac in canada baclof lowest price in usa buy online diflucan buy baclof naltrexone pharmacy can you quinine sulphate more where can i buy avanafil buy kamagra online usa enalapril 5 12.5mg amlodipine besylate 5mg info about prilosec generic buy bimatoprost ophthalmic in california buy lumigan uk bupropion hcl xl 150 mg amitriptyline 15 mg buy tretinoin without prescription generic bupropion anchen non-prescription doxycycline prilosec otc flagyl 500mg bimatoprost ophthalmic on-line buy generic viraday buy septra in canada buy orlistat alli in california information about nexium otc ciprofloxacin hcl 500 mg omeprazole price cost zocor bupropion price lipitor 20mg in uk information about order dapoxetine info about purchase hostacycline online azithromycin 100mg tablets buy diclofenac lipitor 20mg dilantin 300 mg in mexico buy generic accutane buy ciprofloxacin online overnight shipping lipitor best price ciprofloxacin 500mg tab voltaren pills diflucan cost 80 mg simvastatin in canada
