Migrating to Google Workspace doesn’t have to be a one-time changeover for all
Those who have been using Google’s cloud service would know how advanced and convenient the technology is. However, it is very hard for those who have not yet experienced it to understand the true benefits of Google’s cloud service. Human nature tends toward comfort and is hard-wired to resist change. The core argument between people who support and against Google Workspace is usually around “whether we should change over to Google Workspace completely”. Due to many ‘irreconcilable differences’ between the two parties, it is very hard to achieve a consensus. But, does it really have to be an “all-or-nothing” decision? Is it possible to migrate part of the employees to Google Workspace while keeping the others on the legacy system? These are the most urgent problem to be resolved for many companies that are considering Google Workspace.
|Concern||Pro-Google Workspace||Anti-Google Workspace|
|Cost and performance||In order to improve productivity, Google Workspace is imperative.||Current email service has no limit on account numbers while Google Workspace is per user based pricing.|
|Perspective on corporate email||Email together with collabration tools will improve productivity.||Mailbox is just a tool to send and receive emails, thus unwilling to pay so much on it.|
|Accessibility in China||My departement has nothing to do with China.||Accessibility of Google in China is unstable, therefore risky to use.|
|Software literacy||With Google Workspace, there’s no need to purchase Microsoft Office.||I am used to Office. I have never used Google before.|
|Mobile working||Google Workspace can be accessed anytime with any device, thus more convenient than Microsoft Office.||I only use computer inside the office. There’s no need for mobile working.|
