Like everyone else, I am sure you can’t wait to see what the new Office has to offer. It delivers significant innovations designed to help businesses work smarter and stay competitive, and it works great on nearly all devices – the immersive, touch-optimized user interface gives users a clean, fluid experience with mouse and keyboard, touch or pen. But that is just the tip of the iceberg.
What is really special about the new Office is that it is built to enable social productivity in new, more compelling ways. For example: the people card aggregates information for all your contacts so you get one unified view of their status updates. The card also acts as a launch pad for all the ways you want to communicate – schedule meetings, send an email, start chatting or host a multiparty HD video conference with Lync and Skype users, all with the touch of a button.
In addition, the new Office has been designed to run side-by-side with older versions of Office, thus avoiding most compatibility issues and significantly simplifying IT deployment. For IT, the new Office provides security without compromise and other benefits including data loss prevention, built-in malware, integrated compliance and flexible deployment options across on-premises and in the cloud. And, as one would expect, the new Office really shines on Windows 8.
