  • A Spanish blog on BPM, from the product marketing manager at Polymita, a new entrant to Gartner's BPM MQ. If you use Google Reader to subscribe to RSS feeds, you can set up a folder of foreign-language blogs and instruct Reader to just translate them all to your language. So far, I follow BPM-related blogs in French, Spanish, German, Italian and Russian.

  • A case study of moving from Microsoft Exchange to Google Apps mail (I assume that they mean the domain email, not Gmail, in the article). The whole conversion took them 3 hours, much less than expected, and saves them $1M over 3 years for their 700+ employees. Also, Google gives such generous space allowances that there's no more annoying messages from the mail server requesting that you delete stuff or stop receiving mail. Any small or mid-sized company would be insane to host their own mail servers these days, and the economics are trending towards this for larger companies as well.
