The Transition to Google Workspace

In October of 2020, Google announced the rebranding and restructuring of G Suite into Google Workspace.  In doing so, Google created two subscription tiers — Business and Enterprise. Within each tier, Google announced new subscription options with features aligned to better match what organizations of different sizes need and want in the productivity suite. With the transition to Google Workspace, most businesses gain communication and collaboration features they need and want.

For many businesses, maintaining current capabilities comes with a significant increase in subscription fees.

To help you plan your transition to Google Workspace, this slide deck with notes from our Coffee & Clouds Series webcast covers

  • Subscription changes
  • Transition options
  • Pro/Con considerations for each transition path
