The way analyst Alan Lepofsky figures it, organizations have several options when it comes to their worker productivity applications. Besides ignoring the cloud option completely, IT leaders could:
Move their existing on-premises products (likely Microsoft Office) to the cloud, opting for the same or similar applications in a Web-based format.
Move just the storage but not the tool to the cloud, using applications like Dropbox to share files.
Use cloud applications to enable a whole new way of processing work flow and communications.
