Roche (RHHBY) to Move 90,000 Employees to Google Inc. Apps



2/17/2012 7:39:41 AM

Health care and pharmaceutical company Roche Group will standardize its email and calendaring system on Google Apps for about 90,000 employees worldwide, the companies announced on Thursday. Roche has had two different email and calendaring platforms for the past two and a half years, a situation that has created "interoperability issues" that have harmed collaboration, according to a blog post from Roche's CFO and CIO Dr. Alan Hippe. This will be the second-largest Google Apps deployment to date, after the also recently announced plan by Spain's Banco Bilbao Vizcaya to roll out the Google suite to its 110,000 employees globally.
