According to a new study from Bitglass specializing in security in the cloud, Microsoft has included with Office 365 on Google leadership in the field of cloud-based office software. As part of this study on the adoption of cloud, nearly 120,000 businesses were surveyed.
And first finding more general adoption of cloud solutions has dramatically improved since 2014 , even almost doubled. But this development would benefit to a greater extent to Microsoft.
A year earlier, the share of Google’s market with Google Apps was significantly higher than that of Microsoft, more than double the same, to 16.3%. The Redmond company in the last 15 months is therefore a real step forward. The market share of Office 365 in this application domain is evaluated by the study to 25.2%, ahead of Google, which is also making progress still to 22.8%.
Microsoft would benefit especially for better implementation in companies with 500 or more employees with PDM 34.3%, against 21.9% for Google Apps. Now these are the largest companies (1000 employees) who most strongly adopted cloud-based messaging the past 15 months with an adoption rate from 18 to 57% – from 24 to 44% for those under 500.
