Does  anyone use Google apps instead of Exchange Server? We are thinking of using google instead of Exchange. Of course there would be a huge cost savings. We are a non profit so we would get Apps for free. What are the pros and cons of Apps compared to Exchange Server. We mostly would use the Global address book and shared calendars.

 

Thans for any input.

Besides the obvious cost savings, I like the idea of being able to access the apps and the documents from anywhere via a browser and being out of the business of having to perform and maintain backups, and being able to support users that might be using platforms other than windows. But really, the cost argument is really, really compelling. You might want to look at some of these resources below.

No, I don’t work for Google… but I was doing some research on this very thing today.

A <a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_TzCpYGpzw”>short video</a> that shows some of the WOW features of Google Apps.

Google “<a href=”http://www.google.com/apps/intl/en/business/customers.html”>Businesses Share their stories”</a> reference deck – includes industry specific video of customers detailing their decision processes, implementation strategy and cost savings.

The <a href=”http://www.youtube.com/googleapps”>Google Apps Channel on youtube.com </a>– high quality video with customers discussing their usage of Google Apps

The <a href=”http://googleenterprise.blogspot.com/”>Google Enterprise Blog </a>on blogspot.com – directly from the development and product management teams at Google. See what they’re working on and what new customers have recently selected Google Apps as their platform to deliver end user applications

<a href=”http://www.ditoweb.com”>DitoWeb</a> – website of a popular Google Apps reseller / integrator – includes client testimonials, technical information, and newsletter.

<a href=”http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=67774″>Deployment Guide</a> – How to manage a successful deployment. Useful if you want more information on the process of switching to Google Apps.

Hope this helps you out.

    I can say that I've been hearing from some clients and other people I meet that they're converting over to Google. You're not the only one on this bandwagon.
