Google’s Presently to Challenge Microsoft PowerPoint

Monday, September 17, 2007
Presently-Google's powerpoint Google’s continuous effort to launch free software products is on. Earlier, it was docs and now its power point. Presently, the web based power point is soon going to be launched by Google.

As posted earlier in my blog that Google had partnered with IT firm CapGemini to deliver Google Apps to enterprise clients, it is now sure that this presentation application will be included among the array of applications in the enterprise package.

It’s being speculated that Presently is likely to be based on code that Google got through the acquisitions of Zenter and Tonic Systems earlier this year.

Beyond doubt, the release of this PPT application will fill in a major gap that still left Google Apps lagging behind the features of MS Office. Whether or not it will actually make an impact on the sales of PowerPoint or the user base is still up in the air.

Many online users and enterprises may enjoy major benefits in the web-based Google Presently’s ability to share presentations in an easy manner and access them from any PC. It will be developed to run on the web, which will increase collaboration and possibly even viral sharing of slideshows.

With Presently, Google has thrown a challenge to Microsoft Office Suite. Now, MSN must be sulking at Google’s initiative to get into software products.
