One of my colleagues pointed out an interesting post over at the Microsoft Office blog. I believe this is one of Microsoft’s first public comments on the next version of Office which will include SharePoint. Although there is not much detail on what is in the new product in terms of features,
“I’m not able to share too much about Office 15, but I can tell you Office 15 is the most ambitious undertaking yet for the Office Division. With Office 15, for the first time ever, we will simultaneously update our cloud services, servers, and mobile and PC clients for Office, Office 365, Exchange, SharePoint, Lync, Project, and Visio. Quite simply, Office 15 will help people work, collaborate, and communicate smarter and faster than ever before.”
I think the interesting thing here is that for the first time Microsoft has publicly mentioned a timeline for the public beta,
“everyone will have the opportunity to try the Office 15 public beta later this summer”
sounds like it’s going to be an exciting summer for SharePoint!
