What is most valuable?

The feature that I have found the most valuable is that Microsoft OneDrive works with any Enterprise Cloud Solutions Office app. You can edit a document on the cloud, share documents with your colleagues, and monitor changes. You can access your work almost anywhere. You can also sync Microsoft… more »

What needs improvement?

The area that can be improved is to be able to share easily with folks outside the organization and with folks who don't have an account, such as Microsoft Office account. Sometimes, when you send a link, you might have some form of repetition. If you don't know how to share it properly, whoever you… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I've used Google Drive before but just for personal use, not for corporate use.

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend Microsoft OneDrive, especially if you are an enterprise. The support is fantastic, and it's something that they've been doing for years. It's an all-round fantastic product, especially if you are an organization that is based on Microsoft stage products. So it's just an… more »

What is most valuable?

The solution offers fantastic integration with Outlook. There's also easy integration with SharePoint. It works well within the Microsoft family of applications. With this solution, the sharing of documents if very easy to do. There's a lot… more »

What needs improvement?

The online application is quite limited, for this and other Office offerings. The solution is pricey, even though you get a lot of applications with it.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution can be a bit expensive.

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer; we simply use the product. We don't have a business relationship with Microsoft. We're using multiple Microsoft apps, including Office 365, which comes with One Drive, SharePoint, Teams, and other apps. We're using… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did look at G Suite previously before deciding to go ahead with this solution instead. At the time, we compared the two and decided Microsoft Office's suite, including OneDrive, just offered a bit more for us and that G Suite wasn't quite… more »

What is most valuable?

Being able to use OneDrive as a mapped drive in Windows Explorer is the most valuable feature. Rather than using OneDrive on a browser, you can also open up the Windows Explorer and I can see the file structure in the normal format.

What needs improvement?

It should be more tailored towards pictures and video content. I have Google Drive purely just to look after my pictures and video because the way they organize videos and pictures is easier, and is a lot easier to retrieve a needle in a haystack. If I want to pick out certain criteria of pictures… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used a mixture of Dropbox and Google Drive. I moved over to OneDrive because it had better storage than Google, but I still keep a hold of Google purely just for videos and pictures. At one time, I get six terabytes of OneDrive cloud storage so that's a lot more than I would get with Google.

What other advice do I have?

If you're a Microsoft customer and you use Office 365, it works and integrates seamlessly. So most people out there use Microsoft Office products and it works hand in hand. I would rate OneDrive an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

One of the good features is that the users are not even aware that they're using it. It is the backend of our Office 365. If they using applications like SharePoint, Teams, and OneNote, and all of their data and files are stored transparently on OneDrive. They even use OneDrive as a place to store… more »

What needs improvement?

The user interface sometimes fails and when it cannot connect, it does not give the reason why. Interface-wise, I prefer Google drive.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We pay a lot for the Enterprise version, but it is a premium service.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing OneDrive is to make sure that the infrastructure is solid. Microsoft products require a good core infrastructure to get the best performance and potential for usage. If you don't have a good infrastructure then you will get complaints from the users, so it… more »

What is most valuable?

It's quite easy to use and then of course it is quite well integrated to the rest of Office 365.

What needs improvement?

I think it's quite easy to use. It's quite complete because I use Google Drive as well, but I think the simple feature is it's similar to Google Drive, except I think it's just integrated to the rest of the Office 365 suite. The file structure insight could be made more flexible like for creating more flexible folders.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it. The integration with Office 365 makes it much easier for anybody to add the capabilities of file storage. For example, if you are sending a very big file into OneDrive, you don't have to send it as an attachment. I think that's quite useful. Everything is quite automated, so you don't really have to worry. I would rate it an eight out of ten.
