Microsoft Office is a collection of client software, server software, and services delevoped by Microsoft. This idea of combining these softwares was announced in 1988. This first version contained Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Powerpoint. There have been other add ons to the program list since. Office is produced in different versions toward different users and environments. It was first made for the desktop version which happens to be the most used version. On the desktop version, you can access these from Windows and MacOS. There is also the Office Online version which runs through a web browser. Since Office came to be, there have been more programs added onto the original three that were offered. These programs are now bundled and promoted as Office 365. Office 365 is a subscription based model and allows for a lifetime subscription and cloud integration.
Google Tools, also known as G Suite, is a collection of cloud computing, productivity tools, and software developed by Google. It was launched in 2006. G Suite is continuing to expand their offerings and look to compete with Microsoft Office with the services and products they offer. Services that G Suite offers that are in competition with Microsoft Office are Docs, Sheets, and Slides. These programs are cloud based and can be accessed through a web browser. It can allow for a constructive environment between users as numberous people can access the same cloud document at a given time. One great feature that G Suite utilizes is that documents can be saved as you go. This is handled through the cloud and is based inside Google's data centers. So this allows users to access their documents anywhere at anytime through a web browser.
Apache OpenOffice is another commercial solution for office productivity. It was developed as the successor of OpenOffice.org, also known as OOo. This was because OOo was discontinued and other companies like Oracle picked it up. Apache OpenOffice was officilly released on May 8, 2012. Apache OpenOffice was released at that time due to the obstacles that the programmers and employees were having with it while tryig to develop it. It put the companies in tough spots and in one case, Oracle took over and laid off the team. The program went through many different conglomerates which didn't allow the program to reach the full potential it could have. It still has some space in the world of office software today although not as well known as Microsoft Office or G Suite. Like Microsoft Office and G Suite, Apache OpenOffice offers programs such as Writer, Calc, and Impress. They can allow you to create word documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. The end user is able to download these programs from their site and run them on their computers.
