OFFICE 365 vs. GOOGLE APPS Although some may question the relevance of comparing Office 365 and Google Apps for Business, the truth is that Google Apps for Business is the closest thing to a competitor at this moment in time. So, who will win in a fight? Office 365 (E1) Ease of use Ease of admin Online/offline capability Customisation options Price Microsoft may not be perfect on usability in the admin, Overall Score: 8/10 but they make up for it make up for it by including their already popular Office products as part of the package Google Apps 'Premier' Ease of use Ease of admin Online/offline capability Customisation options Price 'Friendlier' in admin and price than Office 365, Overall Score: 6/10 but may be too web focused for a serious business platform. GOOD OFFICE 365 ON MOBILE DEVICES O Send and Recieve Email O Access to Office Mobile 2010 Access Calendar Information O Access Contacts Information Simple to set up with Windows 7 phone, iPhone and Android BAD The modern focus is definitely on these clever phones that everyone is talking about. I mean smart phones. That wasn't very clever/smart of me. Moving swiftly on... O Less easy to set up on other phones O Services is said to be a tad glitchy on some phone models VERDICT: Although the launch of Microsoft Office 365 is an exciting one, it is important to remember that it is ultimately just an update and rebrand on Microsoft's Business Productivity Online Services Suite (BPOS). Considering this the 'tailored' plans make it a lot more accessible to small business in particular. It's power is far more significant than it's competitors, but its useability on the Admin side will require most companies to seek help from partners. Its cross model support on mobile devices has definitely been considered, but may be able to be improved a wee bit more. So, overall - discounting a few tweaks, Office 365 wins the award for being God at cloud computing (for businesses). Well done you.
