Tempus Nova: Targeting Innovation for the Long Term

Tempus Nova was founded in 2001 and was known as the Lotus Notes experts. The Google Apps solution was released in 2008, at which point Tempus Nova became a Google Apps Partner and Reseller. Today, Tempus Nova is a Google Apps Premier Partner and has been largely successful in deploying the Google Apps solution to public and private sector clients ranging from SMB and MM to Fortune 500, as well as Federal, State and local entities. Owner and CEO, Didi Dellanno believes that Tempus Nova’s early involvement with Google Apps and expertise in legacy systems (i.e., Lotus Notes) sets them apart from their competitors.

Having migrated over 1 million users to Google Apps, Tempus Nova has unique insight into what makes an organization successful. Their Google Certified Deployment Specialists, Google Certified Trainers, and PMP certified Project Managers are key to successfully deploying Google Apps across large enterprises with complex environments. Their Business Transformation and Change Management Specialists are integral to the transition to Google Apps ensuring that end users are informed, trained and ready on day one.

I believe that our early involvement with Google Apps and our expertise in legacy systems (i.e., Lotus Notes) sets us apart from our competitors.

Tempus Nova (www.tempusnova.com) has been at the forefront of Federal, State and local competitive bids and migrated the first four states (UT, CO, WY, IA) to go Google Apps. They have worked with large federal agencies to demonstrate the power, efficiency, and cost savings of a cloud solution. Tempus Nova has also supported large private sector clients in their transition to Google Apps, such as a well known nationwide department store, a global subscription based warehouse distributor, and a nationwide restaurant chain.

The biggest impact is in the EDU space, as Google is impacting and indoctrinating our youth and future workforce by providing Google Apps for Education at no cost to K-12 and higher education institutions. This is evident from the fact that 77 out of the top 100 schools have adopted Google Apps for Education.

The adoption rate for Google Apps across organizations is very high due to the immense cost savings of a cloud based solution. Additionally, users enjoy the benefits of real time collaboration across the Google Apps platform, which saves time for employees and increases productivity. For example, the State of Colorado in 2011 deployed Google Apps and reported to State Legislature in 2014 and 2015 identifying a cost savings of $2.4M in 2014 and $3M in 2015. In 2014, Colorado executed a state-wide initiative to leverage Google Sites (public and private websites hosted by Google for collaboration) and Google Drive (electronic file synchronization and virtual storage in the cloud).

In 2015, the State deployed Google Mobile Device Management (MDM), Google Hangouts (video conferencing and screen sharing), and continued to increase their use of Sites and Drive. The result was a rolling return on investment way beyond email.

Great outcomes in business start with great initiatives taken within the workforce. Tempus Nova strives to remain a great place to work. Tempus Nova not only sells Google Apps but utilizes it within their organization, which provides employees the ability to work remotely. Tempus Nova encourages their staff to remain current with technology and applicable certifications, as well as attend industry events.

Long term, Tempus Nova is focused on capturing larger market shares, building on their cloud offering and expertise, as well as remaining a relevant Google Apps Premier Partner. It is Tempus Nova’s objective to help prospective clients and current clients remain current with technology and realize cost savings through innovation.
