Great Adaptation in:
-Storage, editing and collaboration of files to access them from any device with an internet connection, promoting teamwork.
-With the Google Forms function, it is ideal for gathering information quickly and easily, reaching our clients wherever they are.Inappropriate:
-Store large volumes of data in Spreadsheets since they have limitations in number of cells and / or file size.

MEGA is great for storing and syncing files across devices. It has a great web interface, as well as a sync tool for desktop and a mobile app that works very well on iPhone. (I have not used the Android version of the app.) I like the overall usability, as well as some of the features like the QR code and contact list functionality. I like the file versioning and file management features as well.What works less well for me is collaboration with other users, and file sharing among users. I have not been able to find a way to view all files shared with me from other users in the same view as my own files. In fact, when files are shared with me, the only way I have been able to locate them is through Notifications, which is sub-par. I would much prefer to see all shared folders alongside my files, without having to make a copy of the shared folder, thus losing the ability to sync with another user's changes, as well as using up my storage space.

Pros

Google Drive

  • That's the first cloud storage service that's both good and free. using more and more data in one place is, in my view, a good strategy.
  • Google Drive is one of my favorite tools and I use it frequently to store files, official documents, data, images, PDFs, and even short videos relevant to my office work.
  • You don't have to be concerned with hacking because this security is so secured.
  • [An] excellent option for searching.
  • Configuration and login are simple.

Cons

Google Drive

  • The biggest problem that comes up is when sharing a file and you accidentally don't give the person access. It's easy to forget. I shared something yesterday and then closed my computer, not realizing I never gave anyone permission to view it. Maybe the UX could bring it to your attention rather than you have to search it out.
  • Honestly, the rest is great. No notes.

  • Sometimes the download rate drops by a lot, so the downloads take much longer.

For its compatibility, easiness, quick responses, user interface, storage capacity, files management and file listings. These are some of the reasons for giving higher ratings and Google Drive has become an integral part of my professional life. We use this software on daily basis and most of the time saving lot of time.

It's easy enough to use for computer users of all ages and skill levels. I am an advanced user, and I think the hardest part might be showing someone how to download and set up the app on their device if they weren't too familiar with computers, but overall it is very easy to understand.

Clean, contemporary UI that is heavily polished and works great. You can tell they did a lot of user testing with this, and have a top notch UI design team that really cares about the customer. A highly user-friendly service across platforms and form factors, I found their web, desktop and mobile apps to all be impeccably designed and consistent.

The documents load fairly quickly and also update in real time, especially given the fact that multiple people can be using it at once. The "Offline" feature works great to allow the user to make edits and access the document without access to the internet, and then sync changes later once they're back.

It takes a few days for customer support to get back to you. Although, I have not had to use support too often. Once you get an email back, they are very thorough and work hard to fix the problem quickly. It is a really great resource and a great way to get the help you need if you're stuck. A phone call also works quickly but you have to call during specific times.

While I have never contacted customer support, there is a large user community that has posted solutions on third party websites to a number of common questions like how to share files, and how to access files that have been shared with you. When I received a 40 GB shared file, I was not able to find how to access it until I searched on Google to find a solution, which was easy to find. The large user community helps with support tremendously.

It's an extremely easy software to implement, once you sign up for a google account you automatically have access to google drive with a set amount of storage space. The business or Google Suite accounts have more storage space than a regular free account, but setting up and accessing google drive is very easy in both cases

Alternatives Considered

Google Drive

I used Excel but I find Google is much more convenient in terms of storing documents and sharing them. Microsoft Excel and Word documents have a similar feature like Google Docs and Sheets, but some Microsoft products don't have free access like Google Drive.

Enterprise Architect; but it was evaluated non enough easy to use.Open source software are non available.

Return on Investment

Google Drive

  • For Google Drive for corporate use, it is easy to scale up or down based on number of users joining or leaving our organisation.
  • For Google Drive for personal use, it is always good to have it free; however it does not reward long term users with additional storage space like Microsoft does.
  • Cost of using it for corporate use is not too expensive compared to buying on-site file servers and storage servers.
  • Easy for our staff to set up and use.
