Google Apps: Every Entrepreneur's Dream?

Ann All

Like a lot of other folks, we think it remains to be seen whether a new partnership with Capgemini will awaken more interest in Google Apps among large enterprises. There are plenty of doubters, including ZDNet blogger Mary Jo Foley.

 

Yet the bundle of free productivity applications (not the $50-a-year version included in the Capgemini deal) is winning some SMB fans. Sean O'Steen, on his Geekularity blog, tells why he is one of them -- despite his apprehension. ("Ignoring that faint voice in the back of my head that tells me that Google may indeed be Skynet, and that our robot overlords are just a few years away from their planned invasion . . .")

 

He is OK with having his e-mail, calendar and other items hosted (and probably indexed, he adds with eyes wide open) by Google because it relieves him of costly and expensive system-administration duties so he can focus on his core business. Sounds like every entrepreneur's dream.
