Google Apps Team Edition

Monday, February 11, 2008

After they announced the Team Edition of Google Apps, I immediately set out to find out more about it. This is an interesting new way to approach collaboration. When it comes to desktop software, collaboration has always been limited in Open Office and MS-Office has always had that. Cloud computing has become an alternative the tradition desktop office suite but it's never really taken off exactly for the same reason. Microsoft's online version of Office still rules the roost when it comes to collaboration. The Team Edition of Google Apps is a great start for groups that need to collaborate but don't necessarily want to spend an arm and a leg to get that functionality. It's very bare, as far as full office suites are concerned. However, it does fit a niche for teams that only need the basics and collaboration features. Here's a 2-minute video about it:

Try it out and see if it fits your needs. I know I'll be recommending this to my wife who's looking for something exactly like this to use with her team. They only have a small team 8 people and don't need the full everything-but-the-kitchen-sink functionality of say MS-Office.
