Software giant, Microsoft, is said to be planning to bring improvements to its online version of Office called the Office Web Apps. Rumors are that the company is planning to add new features like co-authoring of documents in real-time.
These changes are expected to occur over a period of time and Microsoft’s way to give more to its customers. These things will improve any company network infrastructure system as companies will be able to make a good use of Microsoft Office and enjoy its great service.
The web version, which originally released in 2010, is very popular today with thousands of people using it. With improved company network infrastructure functions, better speed and technology, more and more people are enjoying the benefits of this feature which is why Microsoft is planning to give it a major boost.
The software consists of Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and OneNote. It is available for free as a part of the company’s SkyDrive service. Microsoft, however, will have to take strong measures to be able to stay afloat in the market as it receives stiff competition from other similar suites, especially Google Docs which is also a free tool and allows users to perform almost identical activities.
However, many say that Microsoft has a chance of leaving its competition behind because its Office is already extremely popular and it enjoys a good market standing which is why it is most people’s first choice.
Additionally, with the company announcing major upgrades, there is no doubt that it is gearing up for a big jump.
