Microsoft vs. OpenOffice

​​​Organizations of all sizes rely on Microsoft Office as they build value today and in the future. As you consider the productivity solution that’s best for your company, it’s important to consider the total costs, including the acquisition, management, and deployment costs, as well as the risks and benefits of software alternatives. If you’re considering OpenOffice, be sure to count the cost of free, because it could turn out to be a lot higher than you think. Compare Microsoft Office to OpenOffice and you’ll see that Microsoft gives your people the tools they need to get their work done in the most efficient manner possible—without cutting corners.
