What will UC Berkleley's choice of Google Apps over Office 365 mean for adoption by other institutions and businesses?
stephenb 1 year ago
Berkleley picked Google to provide calendar and email services instead of Microsoft. It must be said that Google offers Google Apps for free to schools while Microsoft does not do the same with Office 365 as far as I know, so I would expect that played a role. Whatever the reasoning, Berkeley is a very prestigious university, and I wonder how much their decision will be a boost to Google Apps with respect to other institutions and companies at the expense of market penetration by Office 365. At the least, is this going to provide a significant push towards greater mainstream adoption of cloud based apps by others?
