Google Workplace to Microsoft 365 Migration

Reasons to migrate from Google Workspace to Microsoft 365

Google Workspace is a platform dedicated to businesses’ productivity in the cloud. Being simple to use, many organizations have adapted Google Workspace solutions to their IT environment. However, especially for mid-sized organizations, this has become a double end weapon, since it leaves little space to grow according to the necessities they experience. Whether fulfilling productivity and collaboration needs, as well as other cloud services, Microsoft 365 has presented itself as a powerhouse for growing organizations. In this article, we explore the reasons to migrate from Google Workspace to Microsoft 365. 

Why should you migrate from Google Workspace to Microsoft 365?

Microsoft 365 vs. Google Workspace tools

Google’s Gmail and Drive are great products, but they only offer basic email and file sharing capabilities. Being said, with Google Workspace, your organization would require additional tools such as Slack and Trello, to enable true productivity. On the other hand, with Microsoft 365 you get so much more than just email—you also get Office 365 with Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, as well as OneDrive for Business, SharePoint, and Yammer or Microsoft Teams (depending on your subscription).  

Security differences between Google Workspace and Microsoft 365

Google Workspace does not provide adequate security features to support an organization of any size. In fact, Google has been sued by numerous organizations for failing to protect their data from hackers. Microsoft 365 offers many more secure features than Google Workspace including email encryption, malware protection, and multi-factor authentication.

Reduce costs by migrating to Microsoft 365

Moving from Google to Microsoft will save you money on licensing fees over time because Microsoft offers pricing for larger organizations, whereas Google only offers fewer fixed rate options, no matter how large your company gets. In addition, Microsoft 365 offers different pricing options, with additional admin training, so you IT can make the most out of your subscription. If you’re getting your licensing from a Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), such as our sister brand Venti Exchange, you can be sure that you will get 24/7 critical admin support.
