32502397 story Google Apps Beats Office 365 For US Dept. of the Interior Contract 245 Posted by Soulskill on Wednesday May 02, 2012 @12:44AM from the heck-of-a-commission dept. angry tapir writes "The U.S. Department of the Interior has picked Google Apps to provide cloud-based email and collaboration applications to about 90,000 staffers, choosing Google's services over Microsoft's Office 365. Google had sued the U.S. agency in 2010, claiming its requirements for the contract tilted the scales unfairly toward Microsoft. Google eventually dropped its lawsuit last September."
