Experiences with Google Apps from quite some time ago

While working at the international agency network Scholz & Friends, I implemented Google Apps as a SaaS business solution within the entire network across various locations all over Europe for 1200 users in 2010.

Google Apps Suite

In addition to some press around that project by Scholz & Friends, I was talking to quite some people about Google Apps at the time. One interview lead to a chapter in a book about ICT-Innovations: “ICT-Innovationen erfolgreich nutzen: Wie Sie Wettbewerbsvorteile für Ihr Unternehmen sichern” by Jens Böcker and Mark Klein, published in 2012.

I just stumbled over this book on the web a few days ago… I had almost forgotten about it. Although a lot has changed since 2010, many current reasons for starting with Google Apps or other cloud solutions are still the same. I hope the book was of any value for someone.

boomf @Selfridges

Do you remember boomf? It’s your instagrams on marshmallows! I came across them last year in June and they seem to be quite popular these days. Just before Valentine’s Day, I spotted them at Selfridges on Oxford Street in London.

Basically, they offered a special Valentine’s Day special, allowing you to upload your favourite photos to their system on a local wifi to get them printed on marshmallows, cupcakes or macarons. Pretty cool…

Also, you could choose from some preselected stock photos if you happen to miss out on any good photos of your Valentine. It’s about £15 for 9 marshmallow which certainly puts them on the pricy side…boomf-at-selfridges-6

On a side note: If you are interested in Selfridges or even more so their innovative founder, Harry Gordon Selfridge, there is a TV show by ITV Studios named Mr. Selfridge. There are not many surprises in the drama storyline, but it provides nice lightweight entertainment.
