Gartner: Gmail threatens Microsoft in enterprises

Google's share of the enterprise email market currently "hovers" at around 1 percent, but it will reach 10 percent within a few years, research firm Gartner predicts.

Google is gaining ground with enterprises that have 5,000 or more seats, Gartner said, naming several public- and private-sector users with more than 10,000 Gmail seats.

Big organisations that use Gmail include Motorola Mobility, with 22,000 users; the US General Services Administration, with 17,000; the Los Angeles city government, with 17,000; automaker Jaguar Land Rover, with 15,000; the InterContinental hotel chain, with 25,000; and the Wyoming state government, with 10,000.

"We are at the start of a major escalation in the war of the email clouds," wrote Gartner analyst Matthew Cain, in a report on Google's enterprise progress that was released Friday.

Will education lead the way or enterprise for cloud email adoption?

In the year following the upgrade we reduced the number of hours we needed to employ technical support.

Teachers appreciate being able to access the network across the school site, in every corner of the campus. This year we installed a third full computer suite following the rewiring of the campus.
