Google's advantage is that it has built a platform from the ground up for the age of cloud computing.

"If they say it has a feature, then it's there and it works great," Campbell said.

On the other hand, "Microsoft has forced their legacy platform forward from the days of in-house IT taking care of everything. It was built for legacy environments and, while it has been updated to be used in the Office 365 environment, it's still nowhere near as reliable nor as polished as Google's system."
