Review ofG SuiteG Suite

Google Apps provides FANTASTIC value for it's price. It's an entire office suite for $50 a year. I have been using Google Docs for the last 7 years and it is constantly getting better. It was at the point in 2013 that when I bought my new computer I didn't buy Microsoft Office. I use Google Drive for all my business needs.

With many users in Google Apps for Business platform it is very easy to keep documents organized and manage what can and can't be shared with other organizations. All your conversations, docs, and even conference calls are safe within a managed application. You will have easy control over communication and documents within your organization.

All ideas and knowledge that needs to be elaborated or shared is done in this wiki. With plugins for create embedded prototypes.

Also is part of the development processes to create requisites and other artefacts.

It's main use is in the development processes, it could be used to create manuals and software documentation as well, but is used more as a collaboration enterprise tool.

All of our (Engineering) knowledge is in Confluence. We document our thinking, our architecture, support recipes, trip notes, anything and everything. It's very important in a remote setting, to be have this type of knowledge store.

Scribe brings emails to Slack, and suggests 'smart replies' to them. We chose GSuite as our first email integration, since anyone that uses Slack typically also uses GSuite / Gmail!

Saves us a lot of time and headaches. Google groups is a powerful app. Gmail is just well thought-out and integrates well over multiple accounts.

We use Confluence for specifications and knowledge sharing. We chose Confluence over other wikis primarily because of its integration with JIRA
