He search giant is heading for a war with Microsoft, claiming that it wants to get 90% of users who don't require the most advanced features of Office. According to Amit Singh, a Google vice-president and head of its Enterprise unit, Google only generates around $1 billion from 5 businesses which sell products and services to the enterprise which is only 4% of its business.
In 2012, the search giant ramped up its enterprise business and started its “infrastructure-as-a-service” cloud, Compute Engine. It competes head on with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. Google also launched Drive, which allows Google App users store any type of document in the cloud. The company began charging for Google Apps for organizations with 10 employees or less.
This gave the search giant credibility with enterprises and Google won deals with such companies as Roche, BBVA, Dillards, Kohl's and Office Depot. In other words, 2012 was the year Google broke the barrier and got large-scale customer adoption.
At the moment , Google wants total domination of the Office software market. The company realizes the gaps between its features and Microsoft’s and it is enhancing them on a weekly basis. As you can understand, Microsoft isn’t the kind of outfit that would give up without a fight, and Office is still one of Microsoft’s main products. The experts predict that things will get messy on the cloud space this year.

|who cares about office, thers a andorid alternative! duh! microsh1t suks!|
|Office works quite well despite people's hate of Microsoft. People hate on Microsoft but without it you would not be in front of a computer right now enjoying the work and entertainment you enjoy today. Microsoft put the computers in the home, yes some other companies tried and were successful, but home computing would not be what it is today without them. Before you troll me please offer a credible and valid point that proves otherwise.|

|MS office? who uses that junk software when theirs open office and its the same.|
"Google only generates around $1 billion from 5 businesses which sell products and services to the enterprise which is only 4% of its business" what a bunch of cry baby's. so if it was closer to 50% it would be around 10 billion and they would still cry about it.

IMHO,it's more. It's a fatal condition of mental obstipation..
They would fit in excellently in the 1940-ties.

|Thanx for the article Sam, Google really is trying to own the world. It won't be long till MS, Google, FB and Apple own everything and makes us fight over the scraps.|
@tonymengela I think the reason people hate MS, is their business model. They release software for free until their competitors go broke then charge us $500 to buy it. Too Many of us have been stung by buying MS software that doesn't do as advertised, we wouldn't accept it in our cars so why should we on our computers. Excel 2010 corrupting people spreadsheets is a perfect example. Creating the docx format to get people to buy the latest office is another. Creating wmv, the last thing the world needed was another video format especially a crippled one. You wrote "without it you would not be in front of a computer right now enjoying the work and entertainment you enjoy today"- how? MS has held us back not let us flourish.

|Without microsoft we would not be sat in front of a computer right now!!! Please. Thats like saying, without ford we would not be driving a car today. Get real, if not microsoft, then someone else would have done it, come on you know how how it works, someone gets the headstart and monopolises the market making it hard for anyone else to break into the market unless you have tens of millions of spare cash. Another reason people may dislike microsoft could be an article I read a while back about inbuilt government backdoor on all microsoft operating systems?|
