See how Microsoft compares.

Instead of narrow, inflexible systems, limited user experiences, and hidden IT costs, Microsoft delivers complete and cost-effective productivity, cloud, database, and business platforms for on-premises, cloud, or hybrid environments.

Google Apps for Work

Google takes a narrow approach to business productivity and does not support some common enterprise workloads. It requires a one-size-fits-all leap to the cloud, and the missing security capabilities and limited support can put data at risk.

Office 365
vs.

Office 365 delivers a comprehensive vision of business productivity, with commercial-grade reliability, the flexibility to move to the cloud at your pace, built-in privacy, security, and compliance you can trust, and innovation that can help you transform how efficiently your organization works.

Google Hangouts

Google Hangouts offers a patchwork of consumer and third-party technology.

Skype for Business
vs.

Skype for Business delivers complete, integrated communications across all the channels that enterprises use.

Amazon Web Services

With Amazon Web Services, you get an all-or-nothing cloud approach, third-party integration headaches, an advertising business model that can compromise data privacy, and limited offerings.

Microsoft Azure
vs.

With Microsoft, you can combine your on-premises resources with the power of the cloud using built-in integration, enterprise-proven identity and access, comprehensive privacy, transparency, and security, and complete infrastructure and platform services.

Cisco

Cisco has a scale-through-acquisition approach that delivers fragmented technologies, disjointed communications, excessive complexity, limited options, and higher costs.

Skype for Business
vs.

With Skype for Business, you get greater interoperability with existing systems, smoother deployment and management, more flexibility, lower cost, true extensibility, and the freedom to work on the go across all devices.

OpenOffice

OpenOffice calls its own interface cumbersome, and its inability to meet enterprise needs for interoperability, infrastructure, tools, and architecture restricts how work gets done and generates higher costs.

Office 365
Office 365 being productive vs.

Office 365 delivers a sleek, intuitive user experience with a full range of business functionality to help you work better together, bring ideas to life, and work from anywhere, today and in the future.
