最热门办公应用出炉

Jonathan Vanian 2019年02月19日

排名榜首的是微软办公软件Office 365,但也有许多企业员工使用Office 365竞争对手的产品。

上周四公布的一项新研究称,微软、Salesforce和Amazon Web Services是最受欢迎的办公应用。

安全公司Okta的年度研究显示,排名榜首的是微软办公软件Office 365,其中囊括了Word和Excel等App。但该排行榜表明,也有许多企业员工使用Office 365竞争对手的产品,也就是说有些人在微软软件中选用喜欢的产品,其他方面则选择别家公司的软件。

本次调查发现,在使用Office 365的Okta用户中,还有76%的人在用对手公司的办公软件。其中约32%通过Box的应用来存储数字文件(微软的相应软件是OneDrive),28%用Slack和同事聊天(微软的同类软件是Teams)。

Okta的研究基于对近5600位用户以及对其他公司1200名员工的调查。这家2017年上市的公司专门为多个应用提供员工身份验证技术和服务。

此外,Okta的研究显示,该公司使用Office 365的用户中还有28%在用谷歌的G Suite办公套件,其中包括Gmail和Drive。报告作者指出,这一点值得关注的原因是看起来有些公司允许“双重绑定”,即同时使用两套办公App。

Okta的首席执行官托德·麦金侬表示,这份报告表明公司中“应用软件的多样性正在上升”,意思是并非只靠一家软件厂商提供全套办公软件。

这也是企业软件领域的趋势,在此背景下研发办公软件的公司开始努力确保自家软件能兼容第三方产品。举例来说,去年夏天Slack就和软件公司Zendesk以及Atlassian开展合作。

当然,Okta的业务在一定程度上也依赖于企业使用多款办公应用的趋势,因为该公司产品的功能就是将各应用联系在一起。

麦金侬说:“如果一家公司的技术能满足所有需求,我们就有麻烦了。”

以下是最热门办公应用的完整名单:

1. 微软Office 365

2. Salesforce

3. 亚马逊AWS

4. 谷歌G Suite

5. Box

6. Slack

7. SAP Concur

8. Jira

9. Zoom

10. 思科Meraki

11. DocuSign

12. Zendesk

14. Dropbox

15. ADP

Microsoft, Salesforce, and Amazon Web Services have the most popular corporate apps, according to new research released on last Thursday.

The leader is Microsoft’s Office 365 workplace software that includes apps like Word and Excel, according to the annual study from security firm Okta. But the rankings show that many corporate workers also use Office 365 competitors, meaning that they pick and chose elements of Microsoft’s software that they like while relying on other companies for the rest.

Seventy-six percent of Okta’s customers who use Office 365 also use similar workplace software from rival companies, the survey found. Of those who use Microsoft Office 365, about 32% use Box’s app to store digital files (Microsoft’s version is OneDrive) and 28% use the Slack app to chat with co-workers (Microsoft’s competitor is Teams).

Okta’s research is based on nearly 5,600 of its customers plus a survey of 1,200 U.S. workers from other companies. Okta, which went public in 2017, specializes in technology that verifies employee identities across multiple apps and services.

Additionally, Okta’s study showed that 28% of Okta customers who use Office 365 also use Google’s G Suite collection of workplace apps that includes Gmail and Drive. This is noteworthy because companies appear to be “double bundling,” the report’s authors said, referring to firms using two different collections of workplace apps simultaneously.

Okta CEO Todd McKinnon said the report shows that “the diversity of applications are growing” inside companies, meaning they are not sticking to one vendor to supply them with all their workplace software.

It’s part of a trend in enterprise software that has led to companies specializing in workplace apps working to ensure that their software products work well with third parties. Last summer, for instance, Slack partnered with other software companies like Zendesk and Atlassian.

Of course, Okta’s business is also partially dependent on the trend that companies will use multiple enterprise apps, considering its software helps link them together.

“If one company made all the technology we would be in trouble,” McKinnon said.

Here’s the full list of the most popular business apps:

1. Microsoft Office 365

2. Salesforce

3. Amazon AWS

4. Google G Suite

5. Box

6. Slack

7. SAP Concur

8. Jira

9. Zoom

10. Cisco Meraki

11. DocuSign

12. Zendesk

14. Dropbox

15. ADP

2. Salesforce

5. Box

6. Slack

7. SAP Concur

8. Jira
