How we work
Whether you’re launching a business or moving an existing company to Google Cloud, we will ensure you have professional email, online storage, shared calendars and collaborative documents for your organisation with little or no interruption to your day to day operations.
This kind of move requires guidance and thoughtful communication. It is a big change but moving to the cloud has tremendous benefits. Through proven change management processes Opennetworks will ensure a successful and even enjoyable move.
Google has many different products, eight of these with more than a billion users each - think Gmail, the Chrome browser, Youtube, Play Store, Google Maps, Google search, Google Cloud Platform and Android. Opennetworks can help you navigate this ecosystem. Digital organisations looking for consumer engagement will inevitably find opportunities within the Google ecosystem.
Where to from there? Build products using Google App Engine or move workloads to Google Cloud.

The process will also allay fears and concerns around any uncertainties by answering the fundamental questions: “Why are we switching?”, “What happens to all my old emails?” and “Will this disrupt my work?”
Opennetworks understands that transformation is not an easy process. New ways of working represent the unknown. To enjoy the benefits of transformation one must engage in a clear vision, planning, change management, training and support.
Change management is one tool used to transition individuals, teams and organizations to working in ways that will significantly reshape your organization.
Transformation also requires a 100% buy-in from your company’s executive management. A simple rule: the more commitment from the leadership of an organisation, the more successful the transformation.
