Goodbye Microsoft Office. Hello Google Docs.posted by MR WAVETHEORY at 10/11/2006 12:21:00 AM
Google Watch says "According to sources, Google Docs isn't so much a new online software app as it is a combination of the two existing products. However, Google Docs focuses on collaboration among multiple users." Right. More posturing. It will be integrated with QuickBooks in 2007.
TechCrunch says there are security concerns with saving your files online "A drawback of online office applications is the fact that potentially sensitive documents are stored on Google’s servers. The fact that an internal Google document about their Project “Platypus” was discovered on Writely earlier this year only perpetuates these concerns (Google says this was not a security breach, however). Google notes that individuals and small & medium sized businesses aren’t too concerned - Google’s security precautions are probably far beyond what they are doing anyway."
The one company that is rarely mentioned is Zoho which has a nice Office suite that is embeddable into webpages. Zoho is a really great set of apps. Check it out.
