Enterprise Solutions: Integrate Evernote And SharePoint

Cloud-based tools have undoubtedly changed the way we do business. That’s especially true for enterprise-level companies, many of which have adopted cloud-based tools to improve and enable productivity of all employees, remote or on-site.

Evernote and SharePoint have become necessary tools in a large enterprise workflow, thanks in large part to the convenience of mobile devices, and easily accessible data.


Yet that accessibility becomes much less convenient if not everyone at the company is using the same services, which is why cloudHQ is a critical addition to any collaborative environment. We’ll show you how cloudHQ can make your existing cloud tools exponentially more powerful. But first, we’ll take a quick look at why Evernote and SharePoint have become two of the top cloud computing choices for the enterprise.

How To Use Evernote, Gmail, Dropbox, and Google Drive for Social Media and Online Marketing

As marketers, we all need new ideas. Awesome ideas. Sometimes we’re tasked with coming up with them on our own, sometimes we need to collaborate in groups. Either way, we need to produce them, and on a timeline.

What is the “Golden Workflow”? 

  1. Base everything off of your Evernote. Evernote should include your ideas, drafts, photos, webclips ….

  2. Integrate Evernote with Gmail - so you have all your Evernote notes in Gmail (so it is very easy forward) and that emails related to your project are automatically uploaded into Evernote

  3. Integrate your Evernote with Google Drive and Google Docs so you can collaborate with your team, clients and partners to complete your marketing material.

Hacker Attack Survival Guide

cloud security

Security and data protection are two of the most critical areas that businesses must focus on. Data breaches and data loss cost companies millions of dollars each year. According to a Data Breach Investigations Report conducted by Verizon Business, 74% of organizations received some kind of hacker attack in the past 12 months. With increases in enterprise cloud app usage, the potential for hacker attacks on company accounts are very real, and somewhat common. Many small businesses or startups are resource-strapped, and can’t afford a full-time IT department and state-of-the-art security systems. But there are alternatives, especially for companies that use cloud computing. Cloud computing security has come a long ways in recent years, and is now counted as equal to, or stronger than, on-premise security implementations. But even with the best security in the world, hackers have a wild card that they use frequently- social engineering. By using this method, hackers gain inside access to company accounts, bypassing all security measures in the process. In this article, we will take a look at how to protect your company cloud apps and accounts, how to create an emergency response plan in the case of a hacker attack, and how to restore all company data in case a hacker attack is successful.

Offline Access And Hard Drive BackUp Tips For Google Docs

imageLike most cloud storage providers, Google Drive allows users to sync their files from the cloud to their computer and laptop via a software client. But Google Drive is missing one feature- offline access and backup for document which are Google Docs format. When Google Drive syncs documents that are in Google Docs format (.gdocs), the document is not actually stored on your computer. Instead, Google Drive creates a link to the file and stores that on your computer instead.

Why is this a problem?

  • As long as you have internet access, there are no problems- you simply click on the link and the document is opened. But what if you are in an area that has no internet access? The links won’t help much if you have no online access, and you will have to find another solution to access the document. So if you are traveling, working remotely or in an area with no internet access, the documents will be unavailable. This can pose a critical problem. Time is money, and if you lose time due to unavailable documents, it can cost your business sales, current customers and future customers or clients.

  • There is no physical backup of these documents on your PC. So if on Google - i.e., a document is deleted and removed from Google trash, the document is 100% gone. You cannot recover it from your desktop computer trash or in any other way. If your account gets hacked and files get deleted, there is no backup.

How To Improve Collaboration By Integrating Google Apps With Evernote And Basecamp

Google Apps backup

Over 5 million businesses currently use Google Apps, the powerful suite of tools used for document management, collaboration, email, organization and much more. If you are a business owner that is using Google Apps, then you probably know that the main benefit of Google Apps is its excellent collaboration.

The Google Apps suite includes these collaboration tools:

  • Google Gmail: Google’s email is one of the most popular email services around. It integrates with other Google services including the online calendar, Drive, video meetings, documents and more.
  • Google Drive: Allows users to store files in the cloud, share them, access them from virtually any location and allows multiple users to simultaneously collaborate on documents.
  • Google Docs: Allows users to create, share and edit documents in the cloud.
  • Google Spreadsheets: Allows users to effectively create, share and collaborate on  spreadsheets.
  • Google Presentations: Allows users to create, edit and collaborate on presentations.

But 80% of companies use more than one cloud service in addition to Google Apps. Maybe Dropbox… Maybe Evernote… Maybe Basecamp.. By having these services isolated (and not integrated) with Google Apps you are losing the key benefit of Google Apps: collaboration.
