Announcing the Cloud Alliance for Google Apps

Today Insightly is joining with Cloud Sherpas, Expensify, Okta, RunMyProcess, Smartsheet and Spanning to simplify application selection and implementation for Google Apps users.

The partnership network — a first among Google Apps Marketplace vendors — is known as the Cloud Alliance for Google Apps.  The founding members, each vetted according to their reputations within Google, Marketplace rankings, product reviews and more, are of course Insightly, Cloud Sherpas (with its SherpaTools application), Expensify, Okta, RunMyProcess, SmartSheet and Spanning.  More information about the Cloud Alliance can be found at www.cloudallianceforgoogleapps.com

Cloud Alliance members are capitalizing on Google Apps’ considerable momentum in the enterprise. The platform is used today by over four million companies worldwide, and Gartner recently recognized Gmail, a centerpiece Google Apps application, as being enterprise ready.

Still, it is a challenge for Google Apps users to determine which add-on applications are the best.  Cloud Alliance solves this problem by uniting the top Marketplace applications for IT administration, CRM, security and compliance, workflow and integration, expense management, identity management, and project collaboration.  Users can now more easily identify the best-of-breed applications, easing their selection burden and speeding application deployment.

On February 29 we'll be running a free webinar entitled “Manage Your Customer Databases” for users signed up on the alliance website, and other alliance members are also releasing free white papers, best practices, and valuable training materials. Head over to www.cloudallianceforgoogleapps.com and sign up for more information.
