Considering G Suite by Google? Here are a few reasons why IT leaders prefer Microsoft 365:

Microsoft 365 brings together the best of Windows 10, Office 365, and Enterprise Mobility & Security. Microsoft 365 delivers a more complete, intelligent, and transformational service than what Google offers for the modern workplace with more robust security and compliance tools to protect users, devices, and data. Microsoft 365 offers:

1- Less Complexity

  • A simple and unified management experience that spans the complex environments of users, devices, apps, and services.
  • Fewer third-party integrations required to meet your needs
  • Reduced silos of IT controls
  • Fewer independent escalation resources to navigate
  • Fewer vendors to oversee

G Suite can require multiple third-party integrations to meet your needs, creating more surface area and complexity for you to manage.

2- Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

  • Minimize TCO across deployment, management, and servicing
  • Lower administration fees with fewer third-party apps
  • Reduce help desk costs with enterprise-ready devices with a self-service experience
  • Fewer integrations to pay for
  • Fewer training costs due to familiarity of apps

G Suite’s dependence on third-party apps and less familiar software can mean a higher TCO for your organization

3- Greater Flexibility

  • Realize the full benefits of Microsoft 365 regardless of where you stand on your digital transformation journey
  • Move to the cloud at your own pace G Suite requires cloud-only deployments
  • Realize business value faster with FastTrack

G Suite offers no equivalent to FastTrack which provides a set of tools, resources, and experts committed to making your experience excellent

  • Onboard seamlessly and drive adoption

G Suite does not provide dedicated customer support managers to assist in launching and driving adoption within your organization

4- More Control

  • Your data belongs to you and you should be in full control over it
  • More control over where your data resides

G Suite offers only limited data location options (EU + US) and no sovereign data centers

  • More controls over who accesses your data

G Suite lacks capabilities such as Customer Lockbox and Customer Encryption Keys

  • More control to keep your devices up-to-date

G Suite limits the controls for IT administrators to ensure Chromebook devices are always updated
