Analyst: 4x Growth for Cloud Productivity Suites in 4 Years
How much revenue is really at stake in the battle between Google and Microsoft for online business mailboxes and documents?
One analyst firm specializing in messaging tried to quantify the number this month.
Palo Alto, Calif.-based Radicati Group released the report "Google vs. Microsoft Office 365 -- An Analyst Evaluation and Comparison," pitting Google Apps against Office 365 in 10 categories.
As part of the report, Radicati sized the market, which it calls cloud-based productivity suites.
The firm's estimate for 2012 revenues is nearly $1.6 billion. By the end of 2016, Radicati projects the cloud-based productivity suites market will hit nearly $5.9 billion.
