B203 – Using the Cloud & Google Apps for Better Staff UX

Tuesday, April 8, 2014
1:15 PM – 2:00 PM
, Division Director, Information Technology, Gwinnett County Public Library
, Training Manager, Gwinnett County Public Library
, Branch Manager, Gwinnett County Public Library

Hear how one large public library system migrated from Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint to Google Apps for Education and, in the process, came to save a lot of time and money. Speakers discuss the challenges faced by any organization when moving their email and intranet infrastructure. Issues such as training, resistance to change, and the fear of Google and clouds in general are discussed. Also highlighted are unexpected areas of return, such as replacing WebEx with Google Hangouts, the collaborative nature of Google Drive, and how these two features have resulted in higher-functioning teams, less travel, and more face-to-face time in a widely dispersed work environment.
