© 2018 Appirio, Inc. 888.680.7227 APPIRIO: APPS SCRIPT FACTORY Maximizing your G Suite Investment The Challenge The Google Mail and Calendar deployments represent the next step in the evolution of communication. And an often overlooked solution can be found among this cornucopia of productivity tools — Google Drive. The sticking point to realizing the full potential of Google Drive is when legacy systems, like MS Office or IBM Notes, can still run various applications and macros. In this situation, users needlessly jump between platforms to complete tasks. It is critical to set a path for a large-scale migration to drive G Suite and Google Drive adoption by offering a sunset method for the legacy environment. By providing an understandable and intuitive process for end users to adopt, your organization marries capability with output. You'll soon see cost- savings and productivity spike, thanks to Google Drive's ability to remain efficient alongside legacy workflows and macros. Approach to a Solution Our approach to solving this adoption challenge is a proven methodology that takes stock of existing business processes, associated workflows, and current applications and macros. We then evaluate and prioritise legacy system functionality based on business requirements, and develop custom scripts and systems to address these requirements. The partners that Appirio works with can diagnose and provide clear visibility into your company's usage of MS Office the existence of macros. Appirio's partners' products provide additional insights into user patterns, while identifying specific user populations as power and casual users. The second step will produce a comprehensive list of macros that will inform our understanding of urgency. Once a list is prioritized, it is added to a macros remediation plan that we collaboratively develop with you. This plan highlights required level of effort, business impact, identifying what processes should be redesigned, as well as a suggestion of which macros can be retired. . The final step is to define and refine the key roles and existing organizational structure — to ensure skills and decision-making is streamlined to drive efficiency and effectiveness. This can include examining and implementing specific job roles, an updated governance model, and a transition of outcomes and recommendations to a specifically appointed team.
