Every business is going to have its own compatability profile for deciding to offload services like email to Google Apps or Rackspace, or data storage to Amazon, etc. Companies who are proficient at IT, should be able make these determinations on their own. Most other companies do something other than IT, and this is a scenario where a consulting company (Shameless Plug Alert) like Vision Point Systems can help.
