In the past six months, over 50 new features have been rolled out to Google Apps. Here are the ones customers have found most useful:
Upload any file to Google Docs
Google Apps users can easily upload and securely share any type of file internally and externally using Google Docs. You get 1 GB of storage per user, and you can upload files up to 250 MB in size. Now accessing your work files doesn’t require a connection to your internal office network. Nor do you need to email files to yourself, carry around a thumbdrive, or use a company network drive – you can access your files using Google Docs from any web-enabled computer.
Enterprise mobile device management features
Google Apps administrators can use new mobile device management capabilities for iPhone, Nokia, and Windows Mobile devices to remotely wipe data from lost devices, lock idle devices after a period of inactivity, require device passwords of variable complexity, and more.
The Google Apps Marketplace
The Google Apps Marketplace allows administrators to discover and purchase integrated third party cloud applications and deploy them to their domains. Applications listed in the Google Apps Marketplace integrate with Google Apps using open protocols. Once added, they then can be easily managed from your domain’s control panel and accessed by users through the same links as the Google Apps suite.
Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange Tool
The new Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange tool simplifies migration of email, calendar and contacts from both hosted and on-premise Microsoft Exchange to Google Apps. With this tool, admins can do multiple migrations in parallel, centrally manage migration without end user involvement, and migrate email, calendar or contacts from Microsoft Exchange 2003 or 2007.
Two-way calendar sync in Google Apps Connector for BlackBerry Enterprise Server
Google Apps Connector for BlackBerry Enterprise Server now allows two-way calendar sync. Users can accept/decline meetings, schedule new meetings, move meeting times and add/remove meeting attendees in Google Calendar from their Blackberry devices.
