Organizations Switching from Microsoft Office Choose OpenOffice Over Google Docs: New Survey by Info-Tech Research Group

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft's decision to discontinue 
| support for Office 2003 or older means 
| that organizations using these suites will 
| soon have to bite the bullet and decide 
| whether to upgrade to Office 2010 or find 
| an alternative solution. Google has been 
| pushing hard for organizations to make the 
| switch to Google Docs, but Info-Tech 
| Research Group suggests that most 
| organizations should not make the switch. 
| However, when a full or limited migration 
| is validated, OpenOffice is the way to go.
| "Our research shows that no other 
| alternative suite stands up to the 
| features, reliability and familiar feel of 
| OpenOffice making it the best option for 
| organizations making a full switch or 
| planning a limited deployment of an 
| alternative suite," said Tim Hickernell, 
| Lead Research Analyst for Info-Tech 
| Research Group. "Google Docs does have the 
| collaboration aspect going for them, but 
| when it comes to spreadsheets, 
| presentations and word processing, 
| OpenOffice is far superior to other 
| alternatives."
