Previously, we took a look at Google Team Drives, what are they, and the value they bring to organizations wanting to take advantage of today’s powerful collaboration tools for employees. We started looking at a few best practices organizations can use to outline a migration to Team Drives, and how can they begin to perform the initial evaluation of resources to migrate.

Best Practices. Part I
In today’s highly connected and collaborative world, organizations are recognizing the benefits of empowering employees and teams with the tools that make collaboration in this high-tech age possible. Many public cloud technology offerings help to eliminate the complexities of being able to allow team members to collaborate despite different geographical locations, sites, or other physical boundaries. Shared storage became a staple for organizations of every size. Google Team Drives is one of the premier collaboration cloud storage spaces.
Google Team Drives is a revolutionary user-centric enterprise storage management system designed with enterprise team collaboration patterns in mind. Digital technologies are continuously changing the way people work today. Innovation is in Google’s DNA, and by being focused on core business processes, the company has put over a thousand hours of the user experience research engineers into this. Imagine that there are nearly 800 million monthly active users of Drive with trillions of files stored on Google Drive, representing enterprises’ knowledge.
When an employee leaves a company, moves to another department, or is simply fired, there is no need to pay for an unused account if you can migrate critical data to another account. But the cybersecurity world is challenging businesses and educational organizations with new threats that require maintenance of their cloud data with the help of technically advanced SaaS providers. Using data migration tools is becoming a common practice, but simple data migration is not enough to accomplish the task. To migrate G Suite data effectively, you need a sophisticated combination of a migration tool and version control.
Now we observe how businesses and non-profits are moving all of their valuable data to the cloud. Backup has already become their culture and savvy ones introduce CASB systems to protect their data from the most popular and dangerous cyber security risks. But since nobody knows what kind of new threat can occur, the only response remaining in case of a disaster is to follow a Disaster Recovery plan.
When it comes to the education sector, reliable software is a key factor to ongoing success. With modern platforms and applications such as G Suite, students and teachers alike can benefit from the scalability and reliability it offers. However, security and backup are both crucial to its success, which is why Google for education backup services are so popular. Let’s take a closer look at why reliable backup and security solutions are so important for Google users.
Managing even the smallest of businesses can be challenging, but luckily there is no shortage of IT applications designed to make things easier in terms of organization, planning, finances, and dealing with customers.
Many of the most popular services are cloud-based meaning they are easy to employ (no need to install software on several workstations), and accessible from any device and location. As you pay as you go and are charged only for the number of users that need access, these services are often easier on the budget than investing thousands dollars in traditional software.
With the technologies in cloud computing moving so fast, and adoption rates increasing rapidly, we can expect to see some exciting developments in 2017. At the same time, security risks are at an all time high and cloud services must constantly battle between developing new innovations and investing in counteractive measures to keep cybercriminals out.
Many IT specialists are predicting that 2017 will be “the year of the cloud”, as companies increasingly have to deal with the backup needs of massive amounts of data, connect more and more devices to the Internet of Things, and start to appreciate the benefits that a cloud-based IT strategy can offer.
In the world of sales, contacts are everything. Many companies hire people not just for their sales abilities, but also for the contacts that they bring with them. Most salespeople are well aware of how valuable their contact list is and may try to keep it private, away from their employers.
While this is not too much of an issue as long as they are working for your company, it may well be when they leave. The loss of an employee can also mean losing valuable sales contacts, especially if a CRM was not used to manage this data.
An increasing number of schools are moving their records, lesson plans, teaching materials, and even classes online, in order to take advantage of the increased efficiency and collaboration opportunities that the cloud provides. A third of US students are issued mobile devices for schoolwork and 75% of high-schoolers access class information through an online portal.
