DACHFest 2018 was an event promoted by Google, around the theme of accessibility and diversity. The keynotes and presentations were though-provoking, entertaining and packed full of knowledge that will improve both workplaces and our customers’ lives. Here are my impressions and take-aways from the event.
Data security is still a frequently discussed topic in cloud services, and rightly so: How is our organization’s information protected – both by our cloud provider and “during transmission”? What happens to our data when it’s with the cloud provider? What precautions are taken prevent data loss or misuse? Customers can rest assured that their trust in Google’s enterprise software is not misplaced: Google Cloud has successfully completed the BSI C5 audit.
I have been using Google G Suite as an office environment for communication and collaboration for about six years. In the following post, I’ll describe a situation that should sound familiar; in this case a meeting with a mixed group of participants. Distributed meetings are one of Google G Suite’s strong suits. The software is not only good at planning and organizing meetings, but it’s also an effective tool for holding the actual meetings as well, even if you meet in person.
In this second of a two part blog post covering Google G Suite, we’ll take a closer look at Hangouts Meet, Jamboard, Groups for Business, administrative functions, Google Forms and Google Sites.
In April, Google revealed a new version of Gmail for the first time in several years. In addition to a better looking design as well as better functionality, it includes several new features, most of which come from Google’s inbox. Clearly something exciting is happening at Google.
Google G Suite was created to improve collaboration within organizations on various levels, to make it more efficient, modern, and leaner. But Google didn’t just make G Suite for teams and small business but for large organizations and enterprises, too. The web-based solution can be scaled easily and allows thousands and even tens of thousands of employees to work efficiently and effectively. We have brought together a few sources where enterprises share their experiences on the transition and how it has benefited their business.
You probably already know about Gmail, but are you aware of Google’s new Inbox by Gmail? Inbox is Google’s modern mail service and it’s what Gmail should have become long ago. If you use Gmail, you should definitely check out Inbox. Or maybe not? Now Google has updated its Gmail mail service with many of Inbox’s features, all while remaining true to Gmail’s philosophy. In order to help you decide whether you want to use Inbox by Gmail or the new Gmail, read ahead to find out everything you need to know about the features and possibilities of the two options.
As we have become deeply involved with Google as a company, and we are now an official G Suite reseller, my openness towards alternatives to Apple has increased. Now it’s the Google Pixelbook’s turn to compete with my MacBook. I wrote down my experiences in chronological order – a Chromebook experiment diary.
On my way to the Google Cloud Summit in Munich on December 6, 2017, I jotted down some thoughts about both Google and Microsoft. Partly to take stock and partly to work out a convincing way to explain to companies why Microsoft isn’t the only – nor the best – option, and that they should instead consider working with Google and G Suite.
Google is well known for its simpler apps for Gmail and Google Docs, but it has a great deal more to offer in the business context, especially for freelancers and small to medium businesses.
