Microsoft Casts Doubt On Google Enterprise Apps
Microsoft responded to the announcement of CapGemini support for Google Apps yesterday with a statement and a list of questions about Google Apps for the Enterprise — or reasons potentially not to use them. Mary Jo Foley at ZDNet has both, and the list of 10 questions/reasons is also at Read/WriteWeb. The questions Microsoft raises go to the quality, reliability and support for Google Apps. It certainly appears from the detail and vehemence of the questions that Microsoft now sees itself playing defense. Certainly there’s truth in many of the criticisms on Microsoft’s list but perhaps the lady doth protest too much as well.
