Recently, Microsoft uploaded a video as well as a blog post highlighting that using Google Apps is a gamble. Microsoft touts Google Apps as being a compromise on both security and privacy.
Today, Microsoft announced that three more companies have joined the Office 365 bandwagon- Sensia Hälsovård AB, SEPCOIII, and Arysta LifeScience.
These companies, according to Microsoft chose Office 365 “for its enterprise-class capabilities, compliance, security and privacy features, all delivered in a cloud service with a 99.9 percent financially backed uptime guarantee from Microsoft.”
These firms reportedly tested Google Apps and ended up making the switch to Office 365. Microsoft claims that Google Apps are difficult to use and lack the capabilities that employees were accustomed to in Office. “With Office 365 we’re able to interact and engage with each other more, allowing us to efficiently and quickly respond to new opportunities. As a result, we’re a more agile, competitive organization,” Microsoft added.
Recently, Microsoft has put up two videos highlighting how Google Apps makes users unproductive. In reality, Google “lacks the proper protections most organizations require,” at least according to Microsoft.
