A couple of weeks back, Google announced huge changes in their GSuite platform to try and compete in the collaboration space vs the Office 365 behemouth, but also to try and compete with business going for ‘best of breed’, such as Zoom, Slack & Box amongst others. Have they gone far enough – and how does it stack up against its competitors?
Most enterprises have been, for the past few years been preaching about migrations to various public and private clouds, taking their workloads out of self-run, or partner-run data centres. From my experience, similar technology stacks would be used in each of those datacenters, whether that be Cisco networking technologies, HP storage, Dell compute, the list of common vendors goes on and on. Moving to the cloud allow enterprises to stick by that mantra, if of course they commit to a single cloud provider.
