The Glaring Opportunity Google Is Missing

For all there is to like about Google's (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) Apps alternative to Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) Office suite, Gmail compares poorly to Outlook when it comes to managing tasks and projects.

Gmail adherents will counter -- rightly -- that they've a choice of any number of third-party task managers, including Remember The Milk and Toodledo. Nevertheless, I find it weird that Gmail's relatively obtuse alternative is tucked away in a hidden tab. Ignoring this space has encouraged up-and-comers to seek gains from pairing task management and social collaboration tools.

Take Jive Software (NASDAQ: JIVE  ) , which recently purchased team task manager Producteev1 for an undisclosed sum. Facebook (NASDAQ: FB  ) co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and developer Justin Rosenstein have created a similar system called Asana2 while salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM  ) has Do.com. Why isn't Google taking this market more seriously? Find out more in the video below.

It's been a frustrating path for Microsoft investors, who've watched the company fail to capitalize on the incredible growth in mobile over the past decade. However, with the release of its own tablet, along with the widely anticipated Windows 8 operating system, the company is looking to make a splash in this booming market. In this brand-new premium report on Microsoft, our analyst explains that while the opportunity is huge, the challenges are many.
