I was just sent this article by my boss about upcoming versions of MS Office. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7772869.stm We all knew it was coming sooner or later, MS Office hosted in the cloud with all your Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc files being edited in your browser instead of in a local application. It will be exciting to learn more about this solution in the coming year.
I’m still a little skeptical as I’m not sure a lot of business would like that much information being pushed over the internet. Hopefully MS will still sell a localized server version so business could run Office Online on their own internal corporate cloud to improve the security of documents if MS goes to all browser based applications.
Let me know your thoughts on the matter.
