Once business users get a taste of cloud apps such as Google’s Docs, Calendar, Gmail, and all the rest, it’s usually not long before these apps become the standard by which traditional, device-bound products like Microsoft’s Word and Outlook are weighed and measured — and found wanting.
So, more and more businesses migrate backend functions like email and collaboration to the cloud. Once those business users begin to spend a large part of their days in the cloud, enjoying all of the benefits that SaaS offers, they get an appetite for using Google Apps as an enterprise base for other SaaS solutions, bumping suites like Office from the top of the preferred list.
