Capgemini Brings SaaS Innovation of Google Apps to Desktop Solutions

Extends its outsourcing portfolio to include Google Apps Premier Edition

Capitalizing on the growth in SaaS solutions, Capgemini has announced services that support the adoption of Google Apps Premier Edition by large-scale enterprises. Partnering with Google enables Capgemini extends its portfolio of desktop solutions, enabling it to support more client employees, regardless of their locations, platforms and roles.

Delivered as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution over the Internet via a Web browser, Google Apps Premier Edition – which includes Docs & Spreadsheets, Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Talk and Start Page – provides collaboration and communication applications for a low annual fee.

This partnership extends Capgemini Global Outsourcing’s desktop offering, which encompasses the complete asset life cycle from procurement, installation, deployment and management through to disposal. Already supporting more than one million desktop users worldwide, Capgemini has experience managing the challenges and opportunities of incorporating new applications into existing, complex IT infrastructures. With its transition services, Capgemini can extend the value of Google Apps for large-scale enterprises by maximizing adoption and fostering real-time collaboration – even for mobile workers, partners and other user groups that were previously disconnected from corporate e-mail and applications.

SaaS solutions, such as Google Apps Premier Edition, provide a cost-effective, easy-to-deploy alternative to installed, licensed desktop software; they are delivered over the Internet via a Web browser and do not require companies to install or maintain software locally, or to tap into internal IT resources. Having the ability to share, review, and edit data in a collaborative environment on the Web naturally serves the needs of Capgemini’s enterprise clients with multiple facilities, global locations and distributed employees.
