At the Texas Computer Education Association's Annual SysAdmin conference held in Austin, Coolhead Tech unveiled a unique online marketplace for schools and mid-market companies using Google's G Suite Apps.
Here at Coolhead Tech, we cover a variety of topics related to G Suite and other cloud-based professional applications. As a licensed G Suite partner, we're qualified to speak about Chrome Device deployments. In this article, we'll discuss how using the Chromebook Management Console can make large device deployments easier.
As Google introduced a number of changes to its G Suite Business, it also announced improvements to Chrome device management. The technology provider added a wide array of features and renamed G Suite Business. The suite is now known as G Suite. Meanwhile, Google Cloud is the new name for the company's broad range of cloud-based services, including APIs, G Suite, Google Cloud Platform and more.
For years, schools have been searching for the best, most cost-effective method to bring technology, and all its learning advantages, into the classroom. Chromebooks are becoming the solution for many districts. Chromebooks are an economic, thin computer, lightweight, and portable. Web based, the computer is not vulnerable to virus and malware attacks. Following are five use cases for Chromebooks in education.
The Chromebook is a laptop made to run Chrome OS. Chrome OS is focused on cloud computing, with the backend of the Google Chrome browser powering the operating system. For most consumers, an Internet-only machine can fill most of their needs, and in a classroom environment, Chromebooks are becoming more popular due to both economic and educational reasons.
We all know the Chromebook can be a very useful laptop, but with the ability to access and use Android applications on the machine, its usefulness has now became more apparent. These affordable, useful machines are starting to become a standard for education for their portability and convenience. Google has absolutely created a success with the Chrome OS, and it will soon become the "Go-to" work device, possibly in 2017!
Google Chromebooks have made a large impact on the world of computing as a whole, judging by their surprisingly large sales value. While fans of Apple and Microsoft may be shocked that users would be willing to forgo native applications entirely (on OSX and Windows) in favor of what's essentially a Web-only machine, Google assumed (correctly) that most of a user's computer needs can be met online, and in the case of most of the mass market, all of their needs can be met by Chrome OS.
One of the most useful of Google Apps new features for Admins is the ability to monitor limited activities on company mobile devices. Security on mobile devices has become a concern in the modern world and businesses have to be mindful of company activity to avoid data breaches.

With mobile management you not only keep company mobile devices safe you also keep them functional. Here is a brief overview of what Google Mobile Management allows you to do as an administrator and how it makes your job easier.
