re: Microsoft Lands Army Deal For Office 365
It's evident that while Microsoft may still be getting knocked around for its mobile strategy and Windows 8, Microsoft's enterprise efforts -- at least in the government space -- are gaining momentum again (i.e. with this Office 365 order and others; earning FedRAMP P-ATO for its Windows Azure cloud platform, and with it's government-only cloud due online soon.)

Which company is gaining more ground in the federal space, Microsoft or Google?

Google is definitely gaining more ground in the Federal space. This article completely omits that the Army also procured 50,000 Google Apps for Government licenses. This was an acquisition activity for both, not a decision to migrate to either. Methinks there is a shill among us. Many of the service academies have 'Gone Google' and it's likely that the DoD components will, too...
