Submission + - Whirlpool Ditches IBM Collaboration Software, Moves to Google Apps

cagraham writes: Appliance maker Whirlpool has decided to stop using IBM's "Notes" collaboration software, and instead move to Google Apps for Business. The Wall Street Journal reports that the decision was based on both worker's familiarity with Google Apps, and lessening the IT workload. Because most workers have used (or use) apps like Google Calendar and Google Docs, Whirlpool's IT staff won't have to devote as much time to initial software training. This move lines up with recent enterprise reports, which largely forceast an increasing move to cloud based software. Whirlpool's contract with Google will cover all of their 30,000 employees.
