The decision as to which software should be used across the board in a company is often not an easy one. There are now plenty of alternatives to the top dog, Microsoft 365, with Google Workspace leading the way. A study has compared the two from the users’ point of view. The results are good for a surprise here and there. Read for yourself who won the race.

Using a cloud infrastructure has many benefits. Depending on the size of your company and its requirements, cloud infrastructures can grow dynamically without having to buy and set up expensive hardware. You also no longer have to worry about server security, as the data centers of the large providers already have the very strictest security protocols.
With G Suite, Google has been developing an alternative office package that serves the needs of companies with their everyday work. You can use Gmail for emailing, Google Calendar for appointments, Docs for word processing, Sheets for calculations, and Slides for presentations, just to name a few.
Companies want flexibility, they want their software to respond more quickly to changes in their requirements, and, of course, they want cost savings. They don’t want to worry about when, how, and why their services work – they just want them to work, every time. Unfortunately, when it comes to choosing a modern cloud-based office suite, many companies don’t look at the big picture. Many who used MS Office in the past transitioned into Microsoft’s cloud suite Office 365 without evaluating it any further – or considering alternatives. If you take a closer look at the available cloud based office solutions, you’ll come up with some interesting and valuable findings. When considering which cloud based office solution is best for you and your team, it’s a good idea to rethink things, to specify what your requirements are, and then to identify objective weaknesses in your current office solution. There are viable alternatives to Office 365: most notably Google G Suite.
Microsoft Word Online and Google Docs are browser-based word processing apps, each part of larger office suites. In this post I’ll compare Word Online (and not the version of Word which is installed locally) with Docs.
If you’ve considered moving to a cloud-based office solution, you may be unaware that you’ll find a good alternative in Google: G Suite. My goal with our video series on this subject is not to make a feature-by-feature comprehensive software comparison between Office 365 and G Suite. Instead, I walk you through by using Office 365 like a normal administrator and user. In this episode I actually wanted to take a look at SharePoint but had frustrating administrative problems!
I put Office 365 to the test, trying out different tools and functions, and I compare them to my experiences with Google G Suite. It’s not a matter of badmouthing Office 365 or singing its praises. Instead, what I want to point out are the real problems that the software brings with it, especially from the user’s point of view.
When switching from the traditional desktop-based Office world to modern cloud-based solutions, it is essential for enterprises to evaluate the different options, taking your individual requirements into consideration. Here is a comparison of two of the systems available, Microsoft Office 365 and Google G Suite.
For companies, deciding between Google and Microsoft is often not an easy task. One of the main reasons for this is because of the sheer scope of both of the solutions. Paul van Herwarth dives into many of the issues surrounding the choice between G Suite and Office 365 in an interview for Wissensmanagement.net.
On my way to the Google Cloud Summit in Munich on December 6, 2017, I jotted down some thoughts about both Google and Microsoft. Partly to take stock and partly to work out a convincing way to explain to companies why Microsoft isn’t the only – nor the best – option, and that they should instead consider working with Google and G Suite.
