Re-Thinking HR: What Every CIO Needs to Know About Tomorrow's Workforce

Google Docs doesn't improve Microsoft Office collaboration, according to Microsoft's director of online product management.

Microsoft's online product director May 11 dispelled the notion that Google Docs improves Microsoft Office, and demonstrated how moving files created with Office results in the loss of data fidelity.

Google has been pitching migrations from Microsoft Office, which has more than 500 million seats worldwide, to Google Docs, the company's Web-based document, presentation and spreadsheet centerpiece for the Google Apps collaboration software suite.
