Organizations looking to introduce an alternative office suite must know how functional the alternative suite is and whether or not it meets business needs. The questions in this document are based on the choice between Office as the incumbent and an alternative solution. The questions are framed as the choice between the feature set that can be achieved through upgrade, which would be the least painful path, and completely replacing Office.
Questions in this document include:
- Can this solution read and allow for use of our current Office files?
- How high is our confidence that the vendor will continue to compete with MS Office in terms of functionality and integration of messaging and content creation?
- Will this reduce our ability to collaborate with partners or customers?
When choosing between adding on Office 365 and a secondary product, the questions should be focused on mobile devices (including laptops and tablets).
