Microsoft shows why IT professionals should switch from Google Apps to Office 365

Microsoft has taken to the Office Blog to explain why IT professionals should opt for Office 365 in favor of Google's offering. The main selling points are controls enabling professionals to effectively manage installations and content.

From opting to deploy entirely in the cloud to migrating workload online while leaving parts on-site, Microsoft's suite is an excellent option for a workforce requiring productivity tools and software.

Check out the infographic below to see how Microsoft is selling Office 365 to IT professionals, enabling said personnel to support a mobile or distributed workforce. The company looks at parts of Google Apps and compares features against its own product.

This move is part of Microsoft's serious push into business and enterprise with not only Office, but Windows 8. We'll have a more in-depth look at comparing Google Apps and Office 365, as well as migrating across to Microsoft's services shortly, so be sure to remain tuned to our feeds.
