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.
There are many good reasons to use the Confluence-based social intranet Linchpin, even if your company wants to keep using the old approach of documentation creation and storage with Google Docs or Word and Office 365.
Why do so many businesses use MS SharePoint as their intranet solution? Why do they give their users a system, that the often times don’t even want because there are far better collaboration tools out there. So it often leads to frustration instead of increased productivity and collaboration in daily business. In this post I am asking the question which corporate policies lead to these decisions.
