The Company

Google needs no introduction! Larry Page and Sergey Brin – founders, started the story in September 1998. Google Apps was introduced in 2007. Todaymore than 3 million businesses from small to big depend on Google Apps—which includes email, documents, calendars and more—to communicate and collaborate in the enterprise. Google Apps is the first cloud computing suite of message and collaboration tools to receive U.S. government security certification. Google already has won several large government contracts, including a five-year deal with the city of Los Angeles in which it outbid Microsoft. Los Angeles wanted to switch over to Google’s e-mail and other applications by June 30, but that target was missed because of security concerns raised by the city’s police department. Google is now hoping to get its apps running for LosAngeles next month. Google has been trying to promote cloud computing as a way for businesses and government agencies to reduce their technology expenses. At the same time, Google is hoping to reduce its financial dependence on Internet advertising, which generated virtually all of its $13.6 billion in revenue during the first half of this year. Google Apps for Education reached 10 Million user milestones in this month (October 2010)
