Choose Your Cloud: Google Workspace vs. Microsoft 365

Google vs Microsoft cloud

A cloud migration is a big decision, and the path to a successful, secure migration is not always a simple one.

But a cloud migration is a clean slate: It’s a chance to re-evaluate the way your organization shares, stores, manages, and protects vital information that flows in and out, day after day.

Evaluating your future cloud provider gives you a chance to get back to basics, to evaluate your priorities, and to choose the tools and vendors that are going to best support your organization’s productivity — both today and 5 years from now.

It also presents an opportunity to build security into your data management strategy, from the ground up — if you’re moving a wealth of corporate data to the cloud, this is a chance to ensure your most sensitive data is protected from the beginning.

The great news is that Google and Microsoft both have robust suites of cloud-based tools for enterprises of all sizes, so organizations have a wealth of strong options to choose from.
