Google apps for business (not just for small business)
I have to admit I never thought or heard about large deployments of google apps or any cloud based apps to large companies. Then I joined a company with over a thousand employees that used google apps everywhere. I thought that was a big rollout of cloud based apps but if you check the post below you'll see even bigger rollouts.
Some of the best apps:
Gmail (I have to say I'm not a huge fan and still prefer outlook but I can get by with gmail).
Google Calendar (Works about as well as MS outlook with some benefits of Hangouts)
Google Hangouts (Good video conference you can use globally.)
Google Keep (Keep your notes online)
Google Groups (Group email discussion groups and mailing lists)
Google apps can run your business as long as you have a reliable internet connection. Are there occasional slowdowns? Just like anything on the internet yes but surprisingly very rarely.
Take a look at this post on some very large google app deployments:
