The ‘Going Google Africa’ event is part of a global Google Enterprise road show, with similar events taking place all over the world. November 2012 saw the first road show of its kind on the African continent being held in Kenya, while 19 March 2013 will see ‘Going Google Africa' taking place in South Africa for the first time.
"There are many compelling reasons to switch to cloud computing services. Our decision was driven by a real desire to improve collaboration, innovation and to enhance productivity within the group. Google Apps was evaluated against competitor products and selected as the product suite that could help us do just that.
In planning to replace our existing Microsoft Exchange 2003 system, we calculated Google Apps would help us achieve key business outcomes at a competitive price. The decision to switch was carefully considered with both Grove and Google providing tremendous support during our selection process, ultimately Google’s more open solution won the day."
