Exactly my question. I could do away with some awful solutions, but I don't want to merely switch to different awful problems.

My company has been using Google Apps for a while, uses Hangouts for videoconferencing, and the worst problem I've had is getting (1) a reminder to add a profile picture and (2) a pointless "What's Hot" email.

So not really sure what awful problems you expect to pick up.

Well, we already have all the SSO and authentication that we need in our current setup, so having to overlay another set of credentials could be a humongous hassle, especially since the people using the conference rooms are very non-technical.

I love Google Apps, don't get me wrong, but it wouldn't be fitting in my current environment. :-)

(We might just be able to set up "dummy" accounts that nobody ever notices or deals with directly; still very intrigued by this)

Are you worried about employee having a second password for Google Apps? There is SAML integration available to enable SSO.

Yeah, and it works pretty well. I'm more worried about having to ever explain that Google is interrelated at all, since that could cause confusion. It's hard enough with one account.

In a more technically-savvy organization, I'd definitely just integrate more closely with Google Apps and be happy.
