Google Apps: Why do we use them?

While we can concentrate on student needs and add value to the experience, Google focuses on building great products, maintaining the feature list, and innovating communication options for the future.
Our goal is for you to have a webmail environment that is reliable, functional, secure, and feature-rich. Google is a great partner.
Instead of focusing on core values, like student relationships, we can let Google use its vast operational experience in security and privacy.
Instead of starting from scratch, IT staff can use an administrative set of APIs to add functionality to Google Apps.
