Sync your LDAP with Google Enterprise Apps

Yes, it has been a *long* time since my last post. What can I say? I have been busy.

Anyhow, as I was plowing through slews of blog posts through Google Reader, I came across an exciting (for some) post on the Official Google Enterprise Blog. Today, Google announced that wrapped into their   Google Apps Premier, Education and Partner Edition solutions lives Google Apps Directory Sync.

What does this mean? You will be able to automatically provision users and groups based on the user data in your LDAP server, such as Microsoft Active Directory or Lotus Domino. Google Apps Directory Sync connects to your Google Apps account and adds/deletes user accounts to match your existing organizational schema.

I'm pretty excited to try that out! Check out the full blog post here.


  1. Does anyone have a list of large Lotus Notes shops that are migrating to Google Apps?

  2. Not too sure about a list, but there appears to be a lot of related blogs/sites in Google.

  3. Thanks Aaron. I have googled around for more information about this, but haven't found anything concrete - just bits and pieces of information.

    So far I have been able to identify the following two large shops that are migrating from LN to Google Apps:
    1) Hamilton Beach; and
    2) University of Nebraska.

    Would like to hear from other institutions that are migrating from Lotus Notes.
