For which organizations is Google Drive for Work of interest?

  • Organizations that are dealing with uncontrolled “shadow IT use” with e.g. Dropbox or Box. Google Drive for Work can be deployed for those parts of the organization where this is an issue. In this way, the need can be controlled and facilitated in a secure manner;
  • Organizations that use Dropbox or Box anyway, paid or free;
  • Organizations where collaboration with email is not effective (enough);
  • Organizations with intensive Google Drive or Google Apps usage;
  • Organizations where sharing (large) files or file-based collaboration is important;
  • Organizations where business changes are urgently needed in the areas of:
    • better (international) cooperation (within teams);
    • mobile sales/services initiatives;
  • Organizations where IT changes/savings are desired, e.g., in the area of:
    • security and file sharing (FTP replacement);
    • BYOD initiatives;
    • user-friendly content management;
  • Organizations for which archiving is an important issue;
  • Organizations where the use of large files is part of the primary process and therefore crucial, such as in the media and construction industries.
