In Part 1 of this blog series, I took a look at Chromebooks from a macro level and highlighted eight key features that businesses should take note of. In Part 2 of this blog series, it’s time to switch gears and look at the meat and potatoes – the Chromebook apps. Chrome OS is essentially a glorified web browser (albeit a nice one) and requires you to run cloud-based apps.

Now, it’s about improving the bottom line which means rapid time to benefit, better collaboration and integration with existing systems are all of concern. However, it’s integration in the longterm that we believe provides the most benefits. With cloud apps, one of the biggest benefits is the ability to integrate them easier than traditional on-premise apps that sit behind network firewalls.
