GM Puts Google Apps in Gear

Microsoft has been battling with Google over all the big cloud productivity deals. Redmond has already lost deals to the federal government and the city of Los Angeles. Recently, General Motors was up for grabs; looks like Google also won this one.

The Wall Street Journal is saying that GM has a deal to use Google Apps enterprisewide, but that the actual rollout is still not 100 percent defined -- or perhaps official. The deal could mean 100,000 users for Google and one huge Google Apps reference account.

Google claims over 4 million Google Apps users, but it remains to be seen how active these are. Do you use Google Apps? If so, fire up the e-mail and let me know why at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
