Office 365 or Google suite for global business? If you moved from one to the other, what were some of the reasons? What worked out well or not so well?

Office 365 is good, one need to negotiate hard for good pricing though.

O365 is good, but pricey. O365 has better Office productivity apps (powerpoint, etc.). Gdrive vs OneDrive is a tossup. I'd probably favor OneDrive as slightly better. Exchange and Outlook is WAY better than Gmail. Teams is better than Meet and Hangouts for video conferencing, but Teams is terrible for chat/collaboration. Teams is basically a Slack wannabe done poorly. I will say definitively that the security in O365 is way better than Gmail and this was a big driver for us to migrate off Google, BUT MS charges you for this. You get way you pay for I guess.

G-Suite has horrendous insecure runaway permissions. We moved to o365 and never looked back.
