How Many Enterprises Are Deploying Google Apps?

A survey by cloud migration services consultancy White Stratus suggests that nearly 20 percent of enterprises have, to some degree, deployed Google Apps.

It's an interesting finding because the percentage of Google's 3 million enterprises and 30 million customers that are using Google Apps in actual deployments is still an open question.

Of the 19.5 percent that say they have used Google Apps, nearly half, or 47.8 percent, are using it in pilot mode, while 19.4 percent are no longer using it. That leaves less than a third, or 32.8 percent, that have deployed it throughout their organizations.

"For us, [that] suggests that there is momentum behind the Google Apps product, which is encouraging," noted White Stratus CEO Tim Drury in an e-mail.

This is the first time New York-based White Status has conducted the survey, but it intends to continue to conduct it quarterly, Drury said. "I am keen to understand more about the rate of conversion from pilot to full-scale rollout, so we will be focusing on that in the next assessment," he said.

The current survey also found that of the 19.5 percent using Google Apps, 64 percent were using just the default products (Docs, Calendar, Sites, et cetera), while 35 percent were using that plus Gmail.

The survey was based on a sample of 2,030 enterprises in the United States with more than 250 employees. White Stratus, it bears noting, is a Google Authorized Reseller. A copy of the report is available for download.
