PCMAN – Google has launched a narrow approach on their Google Apps for Work. However, many argue that Microsoft delivers full-service productivity suit that will fulfill all of one’s business needs. Many has also stated that Google Apps for Work leaves workloads unsupported, and its terms compromise data privacy. Meanwhile, Office 365 delivers excellent productivity capabilities and safeguards one can trust. Below are some of the reasons why users choose Office 365 over Google Apps for Work.
It is argued that Google Apps for Work can only offer narrow productivity experiences. It has been missing workloads, limited flexibility, and data at risk undercut that claim.

It helps businesses reinvent their productivity, extend collaboration, and transform the way people get work done.
Google has set important security capabilities such as data loss prevention, support for management, maintenance and security available through third party services with separate licenses and service level agreements. This situation wouldn’t be ideal for businesses with important data stored within the system.
Microsoft Office 365 offers built-in security, privacy features, and compliance safeguards that exceed all key industry standards, supporting FERPA, HIPAA, EU, and other compliance requirements.
Only delivered as online services, Google Apps for Work makes the user to move to the Cloud all at once with limited support and limited virtual flexibility.
Office 365 offers flexibility to build the productivity platform according to one’s business needs. Users may move to Cloud at their own pace, with minimal disruption to their current environment. With enterprise-proven reliability, transparency, and control, users may focus on supporting their business.
Many have argued that Google Apps for Work’s approach to productivity is too narrow for some enterprises. It does not support business intelligence or enterprise content management.
