Microsoft launches Office 2010

13 May 2010

Microsoft has launched Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010, as well as Microsoft Visio 2010 and Microsoft Project 2010 to businesses worldwide.

“Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 define the future of productivity,” said Anne Taylor, Information Worker Business Group Manager, Microsoft New Zealand. “With 2010, organisations will save, innovate and grow as their people benefit from working across the PC, phone and browser. We’ve preserved the look and feel of Office across the desktop, phone and Web browser, for anywhere, anytime access. We’ve also developed tools to help people bring their ideas to life.”

Microsoft’s Office 2010 beta programme was “its largest ever” and the firm says that 8.6 million people are already using Office 2010.

IT Brief recently caught up with Senior Product Manager Geoff Anderson to talk about the Office 2010 launch as well as Microsoft’s vision for the cloud and other IT issues. Hit this link for the first part of the interview.

There’s also a New Zealand Office 2010 partner competition running through May.
