Many schools and universities across the world have been going online to increase the efficiency of their day-to-day operations through Google Apps Education Edition. The increased adoption of schools moving to Apps has been particularly significant in India, especially as a result of our recent Got the "App"titude Challenge. This challenge encouraged students, faculty members, and alumni from engineering and management schools throughout India to move their institutions to Google Apps. 


The challenge created quite a stir, and after launching in August, more than 6,000 teams signed up consisting of students, faculty, and alumni. Each team worked with their own IT staff to identify challenges and limitations with their existing email and collaboration systems, and then, working with a Googler, demonstrated the ways in which Google Apps could mitigate these issues. 

As a result of the challenge, more than 100 colleges across India are now in the process of implementing Apps on their campuses. Some of these schools include National Institute of Technology - CalicutZakir Husain College of Engineering & Technology- Aligarh Muslim University, and Jaypee Business School

The performance of each team was evaluated by measuring product usage after their deployment. We'd like to extend our congratulations to the XL CONNECT team from Xavier Labour Relations Institute (XLRI) - Jamshedpur, who won the challenge by demonstrating the highest usage of Google Apps products. This team ran a pilot and implemented Google Apps within less than a month from the day they secured approval from their college's decision makers. They also conducted marketing campaigns to inspire students to find innovative ways to use Google Apps tools. Chintan Agarwal, secretary of the Systems Society at XLRI says, "Considering the need for a networked manager and the high reliability and usability of Google Apps, we have rolled-out Apps services for all XLers, including international students at Singapore and Dubai."

Below is a map of all the schools across India who will be rolling out Apps on campus after participating in the challenge. We look forward to continuing to fill up the map as more schools across the globe get the "App"titude.

Jaypee Cement – India’s leading cement brand, today launched its new brand campaign and announced its association with the Master Blaster, Sachin Tendulkar.  The new campaign looks to redefine the concept of solidity and trust with an emotional connect that has come to be associated with all Jaypee Group campaigns.

Welcoming Sachin to the Jaypee family, Mr. Manoj Gaur, Executive Chairman, Jaypee Group, said, “Sachin and Jaypee Cement, are a perfect fit as they stand for similar values of inner strength, endurance and everlasting performance.  These values have spurred both to set new benchmarks and made good the dreams and aspirations of all those who believe in Sachin Tendulkar & Jaypee Cement.

The new campaign showcases the brand’s core values of stability and resilience as well as the promise of endurance and unyielding performance.  The essence of the campaign lies in the analogy between Sachin and Jaypee Cement – deriving their iconic stature unblemished reputation from their inner strength, grit and indomitable spirit.  The campaign captures Sachin in a manner like never before – as one who has withstood the tests of time and challenges.

Speaking on the occasion, Sachin Tendulkar said “I firmly believe that trust and stability are essential for building a solid and enduring partnership.  I am truly delighted to begin a long innings with another like-minded and gritty player, Jaypee Cement!”

More than 3000 students, guests and senior professional from the Jaypee group graced the occasion.
