Google has been a market leader in providing useful apps to us in every front of our day to day lives. We can manage emails, contacts, appointments, notes, etc. using a single Google account. However, we use these apps for personal use generally. But all these apps are available for professional use in a cloud platform called G Suite. But when we compare the benefits of the professional cloud platforms, Office 365 gains more points because of the applications present in it. They can handle the business requirements more effectively, and there are multiple plans to choose the desired applications.

Many users who are using G Suite are now moving to Office 365, but many are facing difficulties as there are no easy methods to migrate the data from G Suite to Office 365.
