Nominations for the Office 2008 for Mac Corporate Beta is now open. The Corporate Beta is for enterprise customers who wish to preview and test Office 2008 for Mac in their corporate environments.
If you represent a higher education institution, with a managed relationship with Microsoft, and are interested in participating in this "corporate customer only" beta, please contact your HiED Account Manager or Account Technology Specialist for further details.
Note: there are a couple of mandatory requirements for nomination of any HiED organization customers into this program.
1. HiED and corporate customers will be required to electronically sign an Non-disclosure Agreement (NDA) before accessing builds via MS Connect.
2. Only one or two representatives from each HiED organization will be accepted for nomination and must act as the lead facilitator for the organization's beta testing efforts. This means that beta testing must be centrally coordinated at each HiED institution.3. Our corporate beta program is not a TAP program. We want to get feedback from customers about issues they run into, but we can’t guarantee we’ll be able to fix every bug that comes through.
One final note, this beta program is not a public beta nor open to individual participants. And there is no guarantee that all HiED organization nominees will be accepted into this corporate beta program.
