Answer: The enterprise.
Question: Who owns the enterprise desktop?
Question: What should Google do about it?
Answer: Here’s a start, an email forwarded to me about a new Google service which is clearly the start of a targeted offering for the enterprise:
On Monday August 28th we are announcing Google Apps for Your Domain. This brand new Google service allows everyone in an organization to collaborate and stay up-to-date through e-mail, calendar and instant messaging – anywhere, anytime.
Everything is hosted by Google, so there’s no hardware to buy and maintain or software to manage, deploy and patch. The applications are fast, reliable, work from anywhere, anytime and have the elegant simplicity everyone has come to expect from Google. And they’re free. The applications we’re releasing at this time represent only the beginning; we’re working hard to add more. We know you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
We thought that as a Google Mini customer you’d be interested in taking a look at this exciting new service from Google. You can read more about this service and sign up at http://www.google.com/a. We are also working on an Enterprise version of Google Apps for Your Domain that will include features, integration options, capacity and support offerings designed to meet the needs of larger organizations.
