Its security should be better from the data security point of view. It should be more secure, and it should get tightly integrated with products such as Google Docs and Google Sheets. Microsoft covers different kinds of tools such as Microsoft Office, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Excel.

I think improvements can be made from a storage perspective and a cost perspective. We're currently working on the application modernization and I think that the integration section of Google and the cloud could be simplified. Integration across various applications isn't always successful.

Google Meet is missing the features needed to control the machines. Google Meet allows you to share the screen but not to control the device itself. It would be better to be able to control it. They need more enhancements in the security features.

I'm not sure if there are any improvements necessary. For my purposes, it works very well. The solution should improve its security and accountability.

It would be good to have more storage space. The user interface could be more intuitive.

User management could be better. It's a complicated process to delete users and maintain the structure of documents created by deleted users. The solution needs backup and archival functionality. We had an instance where our account renewal was not done in time and we lost information. Archival and backup can be expanded upon, by providing archival/backup services within the google cloud solution. It would save us from using a third party for our cloud backup, which is what we are currently doing.

I would like to see an improvement in data visualization as well as new tools to manage storage in any platform. I think Google already has this solution for management. If you have a data set in Amazon, you must be able to manage it with a Google tool and that's a good improvement. I would also like to be able to use my own tools and packages within this solution and also have a tool to visualize the data with graphics.

They could improve their storage and stay current. It is very easy to use Google Cloud Storage, easy to implement, but it is not very flexible when it comes to modifying the parameters. The level of storage, the level of technology, and the level of services could also be improved. The implementation is not as easy as Microsoft, and the process could be improved. We would like to see the implementation of better identity management.

The user experience needs to be simplified. It is difficult to configure.

I would like to see an improvement in the management or admin pages, because at times it is not easy to work with them. Also, I like an improvement in the IAM part of the Google Cloud . They need to get some parts of the program more mature, like the admin pages as well as the monitoring part.

When making the decision the customer is not driven by the price. They are interested in using a well-known and reliable service provider. Our customers don't know the technology, so, we do that for them. They know that the pricing is comparable with Azure, AWS, and those other solutions like Amazon are cheaper, but they are not as flexible.

The price is fair. Even when you compare it to the competition, I'd say the value we get for every dollar we spend is very good. They have different costs and options for scalability and functionality. We started off with the free edition and then we went for the corporate edition and the business edition, and we've since increased. They have lots of options for various types of users.
