Planning

Your data is the lifeblood of your organization. It is critical to think about and organize the activities that prepare your people and infrastructure for a successful transition to the Cloud. Umzuzu resources will work with you to prepare your systems and keep users informed about your switch via communication, training, and support. 

 
 

Change Management

Ensure a smooth and successful deployment across your organization by managing your users' transition.

Moving to the cloud has tremendous benefits, but it’s a big change.  Big changes at companies require thoughtful guidance and communication even when the change has as much upside as Google Apps. Sometimes the success of the change hinges not on the change itself, but how it’s managed. 

Umzuzu provides the change management concepts, steps, and best practices to ensure a smooth and complete transition to Google Apps. Umzuzu provides services to expedite product adoption, increase productivity, and address user concerns

 

 
 

Integration

Umzuzu leverages Google Apps Directory Sync (GADS) to automatically provision users, groups, and non-employee contacts based on the user data in your LDAP server, such as Microsoft Active Directory or Lotus Domino. GADS connects to your Google Apps directory and adds/deletes user accounts to match your existing organizational schema.

 

Google Apps Password Sync (GAPS) automatically keeps your users' Google Apps passwords in sync with their Microsoft Active Directory passwords. Whenever a user's Active Directory password is changed, GAPS pushes the change to Google Apps immediately.

 

Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook (GASMO) allows you to use Microsoft Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010 effectively with Google Apps. You get the cost savings, security and reliability of Google Apps, while employees can use the interface they prefer for email, contacts, calendar and notes.

Umzuzu also delivers solutions from the Google Apps Marketplace. The Apps Marketplace is a one-stop shop for tools you need to run your business - accounting, project management, customer management - to name a few. You don’t need to download anything - just add to your Google Apps account and use right from your browser.
