Movie studios release star-studded films… Carmakers the newest model… For us, of course, the big news often is around the release of new software. So that made this past week important. On Wednesday we released Microsoft Office 2010 and Microsoft SharePoint 2010 to our business customers.
These releases represent big advances in these products, with features that aid collaboration and boost productivity. It was great to see big customers already talking about ways Office 2010 is helping their businesses, as several of them joined Stephen Elop, president of our Business Division, during his keynote. And it was great to see a report from the Forrester group outlining how enterprise customers overwhelmingly prefer Office and Office Web Apps over Google Apps and other alternatives.
Office 2010 rolls out for consumers in a month – look for it then!
Along with the Office 2010 release, this week we also debuted new versions of Project 2010 and Visio 2010. The new releases now share with other Office products the “ribbon” that really adds ease of use, and have plenty of other enhancements as well. People who rely on these products are going to love what they see.
In other news this week:
Have a terrific weekend, everyone!
