Google has made several improvements to G-Suite that make it easier for organizations that use both Google Calendar and Microsoft Exchange Server to integrate and maintain functionality across the two platforms.
Google has announced a new feature for G-Suite, called Hire; the service makes it easier to streamline the recruitment process for new employees.
Office 365 users and admins might not be familiar with appointment slots but as with most things G Suite, it is a well-implemented feature that can be mastered in minutes.
Google and Amazon both have their sights set on Office 365 as they hope to tap into the lucrative productivity software services that Microsoft has pioneered.
The news that Office 365 achieved 99.99% availability in the last quarter comes as no real surprise. As cloud services become ever more massive, it becomes harder for any incident to affect a service’s SLA in any meaningful way.
This week’s snippets span the tenth anniversary of PowerShell, a survey indicating that Office 365 has a solid lead in deployments over G Suite, Windows 10 Mobile finally gets the new authenticator app, Outlook starts to look like mini-CRM, why dynamic groups don’t work for Teams and Planner, and an interesting document from Microsoft describing Office 365 tenant isolation.
Google’s battle with Microsoft for dominance in cloud application suites continues. New developments, new applications, and even new names keep the pace up as Office 365 and G Suite go head-to-head for customer loyalties.
