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.
The vast majority of organizations use some sort of browser-based spreadsheet app, and Microsoft Excel Online and Google Sheets are industry leaders in this area of professional software. Both are also part of larger collections of business software organized into office suites: Excel Online is a Microsoft Office 365 module and Google Sheets is a G Suite application. In many ways Excel Online and Google Sheets are quite similar, especially functionally. I’ve chosen to focus on reviewing twelve functions where I could really see differences between the two pieces of software. These twelve areas are especially relevant for more advanced users; those who have extensive experience working with spreadsheets software.
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 comparing different software options, it is essential to look past simplistic feature overviews and consider the gray areas in between. To help our customers decide which solution suits them best, we have created a video comparison where we take a detailed look at the features offered by Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets and show the features in use.
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.
An increasing number of businesses and organizations are preparing their departments and teams to take the leap to highly accessible cloud platforms that centralize projects, businesses processes and other business-related items. In this article, I’ll take a deep dive into the privacy features of G Suite and Office 365 and compare both suites in order to determine which offers the best privacy features.
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.
