Get a Handle on Google Apps with LTech’s Power Panel

first_imgsteven walling IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Tags:#enterprise#Products#saas 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Related Posts center_img Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… LTech, an enterprise partner of Google, has released a new control panel for Google Apps to make managing the suite easier for IT. In addition to general cloud services LTech has a useful series of modules for enhancing Google Apps, such as a utility for backing up Google Docs. While Google has attempted to beef up its guides for Apps, LTech’s panel is a working solution for making large scale changes in an enterprise environment. The Problem of ScaleOne of the hallmarks of Google Apps is its simplicity for the business user. But end use simplicity and painless administration are two very different things. This goes double for enterprise-class deployments with thousands of users. Google doesn’t rely as heavily on a partner ecosystem as Microsoft and IBM do. But LTech has still been successful with providing services and tools for augmenting Apps. Thus far they’ve focused on secondary functions like importing and backups, but the Power Panel they released this week targets core functions in everyday management of Apps in the enterprise. Google is correct to pitch its cloud-based solution as easier to manage than traditional IT infrastructure. But a look at LTech’s control panel module makes it fairly obvious that enterprise-wide batch operations and user management could be a lot easier. Power to the (IT) PeopleEven simple additions, such as a Gmail widget with links to administration tools, show a lot of promise for speeding up common tasks. More substantial features in the panel include a framework for managing user permissions, mass group management, bulk importing and administration of shared contacts, extended field support for profiles, and global account management for jobs such as forcing password resets. The panel definitely puts more power in the hands of IT, but it’s the kind of flexibility that you want IT to have. As one example, LTech’s module lets administrators remotely update any user’s email settings, circumventing the need to talk users through the process or log in to their accounts. If you’ve got a small scale implementation of Apps, the power panel isn’t for you. The minimum purchasing requirements are 100 users at $3 per user. But for anyone wrangling an Apps instance with thousands of users, the LTech power panel might be just the thing.last_img read more

The Source of Your Motivation Is Why

first_imgI regularly get asked questions by people who read my blog, and often the queries have similar inspirations. Recently I received one asking “How do I motivate myself?”The source of all motivation is finding the answer to the question “Why?”If you want to spring out of bed in the morning, passionately ready to begin your day instead of hitting the snooze button three times in a row, you need a compelling reason to do so. You need a “why?” When you identify the reason “why” you will immediately reclaim the 27 minutes you spend sleeping each morning.If you aren’t excited by your work, anxious to engage in doing whatever it is that you do, and giving yourself over to that work, you don’t have a reason that is compelling enough. You might be tempted to abdicate your responsibility for bringing purpose and meaning into your work, preferring instead to believe that your manager and leaders are supposed to provide that for you. Inspired and enlightened leaders may do that, but you can make your work meaningful enough by finding inspiration on your own.Your personal health and well-being is your primary responsibility. If you aren’t motivated to take care of yourself, to eat well, to exercise, to do things that reduce your stress, then you either lack a “why” or you aren’t paying attention to all the “whys” in your life. Like your family and friends. Like the people who count on you. Like the contribution you are here to make.A lack of motivation is a form of ingratitude. It indicates that you don’t yet appreciate the life you have been given for what it really is: the opportunity to make a difference, and the chance to make a contribution.Knowing something is true and not acting on it is the same as not knowing. But knowing you have been given a gift and wasting it is not to appreciate that gift. Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager. Download my free eBook! You need to make sales.
