Google Apps Gains Ally

Google's getting a new friend in its push to spread Google applications: Capgemini said this week it's going to start pushing the Premier Edition of Google Apps (the $50 version of the company's office suite) to corporate customers -- including enterprise companies. The Premier Edition, which is delivered as a Software as a Service (SaaS) over the Internet through the Web browser, includes Docs & Spreadsheets, Gmail and Google Calendar.

The partnership may give a boost to both Google and the entire concept of SaaS. And until Microsoft has a credible offering in this area, it may leave our favorite Redmond company out in the cold.
