BBVA takes collaboration to the cloud
Financial organisation BBVA has announced its adoption of the Google Apps suite, with the intention of migrating a workforce of more than 100,000 in 26 countries to the platform by the end of the year.
The move to the cloud platform is the largest individual business migration to date for Google, and is driven by BBVA’s plans to improve collaboration and communication between staff worldwide, and to evolve its corporate intranet from a process management site to one that improves and encourages new working methods.
“Integrating the Google Apps for Business suite with our own tools will allow us to introduce a new way of working where employees have access to all the information they need with just one click, no matter where they are, and can reap the benefits of using advanced collaboration tools,” says BBVA CIO Jose Olalla.
