Because of the mission critical nature of email and electronic documents, the idea of moving core productivity products - namely email and office tools - to the cloud seemed like an unlikely prospect even a few years ago. Now, strong offerings from Google and Microsoft have made the switch a reality for many organizations. However, even with the backing of such large companies, these hosted products are not perfect.
