An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Google to sell Email and "Office" apps on web!

So, finally the Google strategy is coming together? Here Google is finally getting tough on MSFT!!

Google Inc, seeking to challenge Microsoft’s dominance in business software, will start selling e-mail, calendar and personalised home pages to businesses over the web.

Google Apps Premier Edition costs $50 per user per year, and also includes word processing and spreadsheet functions, said Dave Girouard, general manager of Google’s enterprise unit. The company also has a free version supported by advertising.

The software is part of an effort by Mountain View, California-based Google to wean businesses off Microsoft Office.

Customers paying for Google’s service will get more storage for e-mail, telephone support and guarantees on the reliability.

Procter and Gamble, the largest US consumer-products maker, and General Electric, the world’s second-largest company by market value, are testing the product with a small numbers of users, Dave said.
