i think, that if NC wants to really compete with MS or Google there should be a focus on catching up on Core funkionalities like filesharing an office, at least for companies like ours.
filesharing: while syncing works flawless most of the time, it is no option on bigger groupolders. A Virtual Drive is needed. Where did it go, by the way
Office: we use Onlyoffice, there are not all functions needed present. shifting those functions to specialized webservices (pivot -> reporting webserver) is painfull, because excel is a swiss knife and everybody knows how to work with, not all reporting tools are that easy. Sad, but true. So Wopi: last time i looked at the app: unclear if it works or how it works
NC GmbH should establish something like a marketplace where companies can invest in Apps/Funktions they need and are on their roadmap for Nextcloud.
i know, there would be a lot to think of: how long is the App maintained, which funktions exactly, there must be a commitment to open source an this Apps/Functions and so on.
But we had two things then:
- shared costs for development
- commitment to needed features for companies
Keep up the good work Nextcloud, i am happy with it, but to compete with Google and MS … i`d say, there is room for improvement. And yes, i appreciate data sovereignty given by Nextcloud.
