Google may have finally figured out what to do with Google Apps

Summary:Om writes that Google has inked a deal with satellite ISP, WildBlue, that puts Google's "Office Suite" in the hands of average users -- the right place for it. There are many reasons Google Apps works much better for personal use than for the enterprise -- in fact, after over a year using Google Apps, the company I work for has decided to pull out their checkbook to hop onto the exchange bandwagon.

There are just far too many "but can it do <insert something here>" business needs that Google doesn't offer and would never estimate when it will. Not to mention the limited, high level support that never really helps you.

The right place for Google is at the consumer level -- until it can take greater steps to cover the majority of needs enterprise users have, they should focus on doing exactly what they did with WildBlue.
