Overview of this book

Google Workspace has evolved from individual Google services to a suite of apps that improve productivity and promote efficient collaboration in an enterprise organization. This book takes you through the evolution of Google Workspace, features included in each Workspace edition, and various core services, such as Cloud Identity, Gmail, and Calendar. You’ll explore the functionality of each configuration, which will help you make informed decisions for your organization. Later chapters will show you how to implement security configurations that are available at different layers of Workspace and also how Workspace meets essential enterprise compliance needs. You’ll gain a high-level overview of the core services available in Google Workspace, including Google Apps Script, AppSheet, and Google Cloud Platform. Finally, you’ll explore the different tools Google offers when you’re adopting Google Cloud and migrating your data from legacy mail servers or on-premises applications over to cloud servers. By the end of this Google Workspace book, you’ll be able to successfully deploy Google Workspace, configure users, and migrate data, thereby helping with cloud adoption.

This chapter laid a great foundation of Google Cloud Identity and how it integrates with Google Workspace. We also saw a step-by-step overview of creating or migrating users into Workspace and how to assign licenses to them. We dwelled upon GCDS in detail to understand how it helps migrate users and other entities from existing identity systems over to Workspace. Once users are in place, we looked at how to assign licenses to them so that they start consuming Workplace services. This chapter concluded by looking at different types of services that are made available and how to activate them for users or groups. Now, it's time to peek under the hood at how user data is managed by Workspace and which security options are available across services in the next chapter.
