With hundreds of millions of users, Microsoft Office is
practically synonymous with business productivity. As the world grows more
complex and interconnected, the definition of business productivity has
expanded. Whether it's a financial analyst mastering thousands (or millions) of
rows of data in Excel, a distributed team sharing documents with a SharePoint
Team Site, or a CEO presenting to shareholders using a video-enhanced
PowerPoint deck, Office has always been about enabling people to do more.
Now, Office 365 takes that familiar Office desktop
experience-as well as the online Office experience through Outlook Web App,
Lync Web App, and Office Web Apps-and lights them up with new capabilities.
These capabilities are available right from the Office client, so people can
use them without having to learn new technology or even switch applications.
All of these capabilities represent an expansion of what
productivity means in today's enterprise organizations, to include how people
connect, collaborate, and share information wherever they are. At the same
time, they are delivered through the Office experience people already know. So,
not only is there less training involved to get them up and running, these are
capabilities that users can actually use.
