Scale your applications and projects onto the cloud with Google Apps
The advent of Cloud computing and SaaS (Software as a Service) is a major turning point for businesses. Google is one of the pioneers of this approach and the collaborative solution of Google Apps offers a set of office tools (email, calendar, word processing, and spread sheet) for a price, which is two to five times more cost-effective than traditional offerings.
This book is all about making your transition to Google Apps fast and easy. It shows you how to develop a customized adoption path, and takes you through extending and securing your apps while teaching you to manage administrative tasks.
You will begin with the installation of Hyperion Planning and then design Planning applications as per some example user requirements. You will then learn to create the planning objects.

Towards the end of the book, you will cover user provisioning and access rights and budget process management.
The book begins by presenting Google Apps' collaborative and security tools. It then moves on to discuss different ways to extend Google Apps and their integration with development tools like Google App Engine. It also discusses integration with mobile devices like iPhone, Blackberry and others. By the end of the book you will be walked through a pilot project and identify the things that need to be done at the time of full migration. This is done using a case study called ‘Advanced integration with information systems’.
