"Our goal is to get to the 90 percent of users who don’t need to have the most advanced features of Office," says Google (GOOG) enterprise chief Amit Singh. He argues features such as improved regulatory compliance and spreadsheet graphing are allowing Google Apps to address the needs of that 90%, and also sees a growing developer ecosystem and the "consumerization" of IT helping Google's cause. The WSJ recently reported Apps is on a $1B/year run rate, but that's still a small fraction of what Microsoft (MSFT) generates for Office.
