One of the major benefits from Google’s versatile online services is the well-integrated account management in a simple way. This is something the application suite providers always do, and it’s popular for existing users to explore news. As we know, Google acquired Zenter and then relaunched as Google Presentation to be Microsoft PowerPoint killer, now it unveils acquired hosted wiki service Jotspot as Google Sites under the Google Apps team, to be Microsoft SharePoint killer.
Other than its hosted wikis with structured templates, users will now simply embed spreadsheets, presentations and word documents from Google Docs, as well as Google Calendars, YouTube Videos and Picasa Albums. This is the cool point for Google’s online applications to challenge Microsoft. Like Google’s Management Director of Enterprise Matthew Glotzbach said, the success of the killer with combined services is allowing businesses to collaborate without all that expensive and complicated Microsoft software.
Google’s online applications may not be perfectly sophisticated and stable yet, but it’s really applicable for most businesses. On my viewpoint for business presentation, the integrated system is practicable and valuable.
