Simple to implement
This is not a substitute for MS Office. You will never get a good presentation or document for distribution out of this. great for collaboration and then finish and format in MS Word/Office, etc.
Free - collaboration - versioning!! -
conversion and layout features
more compatibility with Offfice
There was a gdocs conversion feature tht we used...wish we did not.
its self support....but they generally have answers, either official or community

Overall our migration of the cloud email and productivity apps has gone pretty well. At first Google Sheets was a bit primitive but they have continued to improve it. Syncing things from our Active Directory ocassionally becomes trickey but for the most part it's pretty stable. The only real complaint is the rather limited ability to search email logs when troubleshooting an email problem.
How easy the migration went and how little we have actual problems
I think I've mentioned my reservations about Google Sheets.
Gmail and Google Docs work great though I have to admit I still miss Excel
Google has always been responsive to our needs when we have a problem.
We worked with an outside vendor for the migration but it went remarkablly well. We didn't have and real problems migrating over 1300 users in one go-live

Limited options to deploy/enforce Apps. Google MDM runs well and provides the basic MDM functionality at no extra cost, but EMM is still weak. Some limitations on pushing security configs (WiFi). Not able to admin define access to devices by Google OU (e.g. for reset). Not able to deploy/whitelist Apps by OU.
Be clear about the functionality required. If only MDM is required, then Google is perfect. Do not buy a Rolls Royce, if a Mini will do. MDM / EMM configuration and management takes more time than intially expected.
Ease of use. Extensibility using Google AppEngine.
Lack of App Publishing functionality Whitelisting etc. limited to the domain and not able to configure at OU level.
Fixed the App publishing processes / procedures to be able to manage the deployment of all apps from a central store to all devices (iOS and Android) in a consisten way.
Would most likely have kept AirWatch for longer to ensure the option to be able to deploy mobile Apps and links.
MDM is okay. App publishing limited (currently only for Android to work).
Once the App publishing and OU fixes have been made I will give this system a 5.

Vendor has been very helpful in guiding us through best practices and known issues if any, also answering questions when they come up.
Ask to see roadmap and how the feature is intended to be used. They are very helpful when you ask, but finding information from help articles is not always easy.
How easy it is to onboard and how well it integrates with all the other Google Apps.
How different the Android vs. iOS capabilities are. I understand they own the Android platform so it is easier to implement change, but there is too much of a gap between what you can do from an Android side vs. iOS.
Informed us better when a change is coming to the environment. Even if it a small change.
Deployment for EMM has been on our own, but we could have benefited from a 3rd party rolling it out for the hands time with the end user.
The way we integrated EMM is spread out. Could be implemented faster.

Overall am happy with the integrated MDM offering.
If you are planning to use Google as your EMM, make sure your inventory is AFW compatible.
Integration with Google Apps.
App approval process is clunky.
Support for pre-marshmallow devices.
Choose a COPE model.

Simple User Experience. Level of availability.
Implementation was easy, but needs additional features as : Deploy different applications to different groups. Managing WiFi configurations with certificates and PKI.

Have been very happy to date with Google MDM. There is no added cost, it is low maintenance and easy to use.
Pay attention to OU's. It is hard to manage mobile devices unless you can enforce policies based on site or region due to local privacy laws.
Cloud based low maintenance
slow to provide new features
Possibly provide tutorial on proper way to set up OU's for best possible usage.
Create OU's based on Site or Region.
Very easy to integrate as we are fully Googlefied.
