Google Apps deployments often start out informally, in many cases initiated by business users who have experience with Google’s corresponding consumer Web services, but who may not always be aware of related enterprise policies. As a result, enterprises can end up with collections of Google Drives, Sites, or other apps that are essentially unmanageable, creating significant risks as well as productivity impediments for information workers who have to collect information from multiple system types in order to get work done. CASAHL’s support for Google Apps offers several unique advantages to enterprises seeking to transition from out-of-control Google Sites and Google Drive deployments.
Taking the DART approach to Google Apps content enables enterprises to identify content scattered across a range of Google deployments (including Google Drive, Sites, and Docs) and, once identified, consolidate that content into a new Microsoft platform deployment. High-value content stored in templates can be transitioned automatically to reduce the strain on IT departments. This also enables enterprises to optimize that content for the new deployment without losing the fidelity of the original content, up to and including permissions and sharing settings.
For example, permissions set in Google Drive (above) can be mapped to user IDs to ensure that the same permissions are migrated faithfully and retained in Office 365 (below).
CASAHL’s support for Google Apps content offers an efficient way to consolidate and migrate valuable content spread across multiple Google Drives and Sites to Office 365 or OneDrive for Business, allowing enterprises to regain control of chaotic Google Drives and Sites.
