When Paul Lones, SVP of IT, first suggested taking a look at Google Apps to power the
messaging systems of Fairchild Semiconductor, the $1.2B chip maker, his staff thought he was joking. But when they investigated the benefits of the anywhere/anytime access of Gmail, the significant cost savings of a simplified IT environment and the ease of use of Google's collaboration apps, the team got down to serious business. After a successful pilot, the team rapidly migrated 6000 users to Google Apps across 20+ countries. Fairchild Semiconductor took advantage of other cloud-based solutions from Google, including archiving and web security powered by Postini.
