    Google Apps for Work probably isn't the first name that comes to mind when considering enterprise-grade unified communications and collaboration options, but Google would like to change that. With the addition of Hangouts, Apps for Work has become decidedly more UC-like than it had traditionally been, offering presence, screen sharing, and video conferencing capabilities. Add in Google Voice, which integrates with Hangouts, and placing and receiving calls over the PSTN is possible, too. Partner integrations, such as those with the cloud communications services of RingCentral and Switch Communications, further enhance Apps for Work enterprise potential.

    This session will examine Apps for Work's enterprise-readiness and competitive standing, and give you the foundation you'll need for considering the Google offering for your needs.

    KEY QUESTIONS:

    - What capabilities and features does Apps for Work support today, and what's on the roadmap?

    - What role do companies such as RingCentral, Switch, and other integration partners play in the Apps for Work ecosystem?

    - What are the pros and cons of Apps for Work, and how do those compare to competitive offerings, primarily Microsoft Skype for Business?

    - How has Google priced Apps for Work, and what are the potential cost benefits?

    - What enterprises have adopted Apps for Work, and what lessons learned can they share?
