The new Office - what we love about it...

In case you missed it the new Office is already available to volume license customers and later this month it will launch to consumers.

Here are a few things that we love about the new Office...

The new Office delivers your Office applications anywhere, all optimized for the best experience across your devices – from PCs to smartphones to tablets.

  • Stay Connected - It helps you stay connected with new tools such as high-definition video conferencing, enterprise social networking newsfeeds that provide real time updates on people, documents & discussions and Site Mailboxes that keep all team communications and documents in sync.
  • Security without compromise - It helps you keep your company’s data safe and your business compliant with enterprise-grade data loss prevention tools, built-in malware protection and integrated compliance functionality.
  • Run it the way you want to - You can run the new Office the way you want, with flexible deployment options that allow you to run it on-premises, as a hosted service or as a hybrid of both.

And here is some early feedback from customers
