Enterprises worldwide choose Office 365 instead of G Suite by Google.
There are 2 major reasons – the clear superiority of Microsoft Office 365 as an enterprise solution and hidden costs of G Suite.
Indeed, organization look for a trustworthy provider when transferring to the cloud, and, you know, who else but Microsoft..?
Privacy, security and compliance are issues of critical importance as well, and Office 365 meets all the imaginable standards, including ISO 27001, HIPAA, FERPRA and FISMA 2002.
Also, let’s not forget about how important it is for the end user to see familiar and clear interface – and again, Microsoft’s in business for 2 decades, you know…
Users can enjoy Microsoft Office 365 in any place they wish to, with software, specially optimized for their devices. Data saved on SkyDrive Pro can be reached from personal computers or tablets or smartphones using the Microsoft Office app (native) or a Web App. If the document is shared with others, users can simultaneously collaborate on the document without worrying about losing changes or the data itself.
Although increasing IT efficiency by moving to Office 365 can generate substantial cost savings, IT cost savings are only a part of the picture. Many companies have found that the solution can also improve business productivity.
Google claims that its solutions promote simplicity, low cost, and innovation, but there is a lot of examples this value floats away from the end customer: here are some relevant third-party services with costs:
MyOneLogin – $30/user/year for single sign-on
Promevo gPanel – $8/user/year for management and reporting
WebEx – $288/user/year for enterprise-class conferencing
CloudLock – $19/user/year for data loss prevention
RunMyProcess – $40/user/year for workflow
Does not seem all that cost-effective, huh?
