"Suites aren't as integrated as many clients believe. There is considerable effort on the part of suite vendors to provide better integration. Most suites (exception is Novell) were acquired product by product over time, so many of them have completely different underlying architectures. Enterprises tend to be responsive to the suite idea because of the relationship it creates with the vendor." -- Earl Perkins, research vice president, Gartner
