I published an article called Moving Your Office Online in the April issue of EContent Magazine. I look at four online alternatives to Microsoft Office from the perspective of an enterprise customer. Unfortunately, EContent articles are not available online without a subscription (or a one-time payment).
I looked at:
Each of these packages offers a base of word processor, spreadsheet and presentation program to compete with basic Microsoft Office functionality, but each offers additional functionality. Some provide online and offline ability, while others don't. If you get a chance to see the print version, there is a chart comparing features, which is not available online.
I spoke to Forrester analyst, Kyle McNabb for the article. Essentially, McNabb believes that Google is in the best position right now to capture some market share from Microsoft, however small that might be,but they need to provide online and offline access, which they are working on, to make any real movement. Glide currently offers the best integration between the desktop and online worlds, something many business users are increasingly looking for, but Glide still needs to establish itself to gain credibility in the marketplace.
