Google G Suite was created to improve collaboration within organizations on various levels, to make it more efficient, modern, and leaner. But Google didn’t just make G Suite for teams and small business but for large organizations and enterprises, too. The web-based solution can be scaled easily and allows thousands and even tens of thousands of employees to work efficiently and effectively. We have brought together a few sources where enterprises share their experiences on the transition and how it has benefited their business.
A modern, collaborative social intranet to replace a classic, static intranet brings many changes with it but also presupposes a number of changes to ensure its success. One key aspect is transparency as actively fostered by Atlassian Confluence and Linchpin.

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.
When a developer uses Google’s leading technology to create a personalized intranet – wouldn’t that be immediately superior to Atlassian’s relatively sluggish technology? You’d think so, but this was not the case! And our customers agree – Linchpin is still the central integration point for all of these new cloud services.
Any plan to quickly compare G Suite and Office 365 is doomed to fail from the outset. In my experience, the two products cannot be compared with a simple table and a checklist of functions. But I have attempted to give you a good broad comparison in this post!
