Business productivity software is the backbone of all organizations. For most of us, it is often a platform that includes several applications that serve a variety of generic business needs, from email to calendaring to word processing. The two largest and most widely used platforms today are Microsoft/Office 365 and Google Workspace. There is a good chance that your organization is using one of these solutions to power your daily emails, allowing you to see your colleague’s shared calendar or to analyze your most recent sales report.
