    Google's plan to beat Microsoft Office - Business Insider

      Google shares its plan to nab 80% of Microsoft's Office business

      Business Insider

      10 years ago, Google declared war on Microsoft Office. Now, it's got a plan to snatch customers away this year.

      As Fernando said:
      "It is clear that our positioning on Jive, on top of these two competitors' offerings as the collaboration and engagement layer, is our most important differentiator. In fact, the recent Gartner approach on the concept of Digital Workplace fits perfectly with our story. Jive is unique on this approach as a neutral Business Engagement and Collaboration Platform. The Google and Microsoft apps are still data/document centric, our is people centric"

              And keep this in your talk:

              Key message:

              • The digital workplace requires a modern, employee portal.
              • This shift will require a flexible, adaptive approach.
              • Intranet leaders will be responsible for renovating the intranet and providing collaborative networks for their employees.

              Key recommendations for success

              • Build consensus around the business, employees and IT on the intranet’s repurpose
              • Establish measurable objectives within your organization that contribute to the agreed upon mission
              • Use the intranet as a training and collaboration center to collect feedback, improve adoption and mitigate risk
              • Instead of using the intranet as an “internal website” message, recognize and execute it as an employee-centric network


              More than 80% of clients contacting Gartner about renovating or rebuilding their employee portals intend to incorporate social technology. They seek to improve employee engagement, foster a dialogue with and among employees and spark innovation.
