By on Oct 20, 2010 in Software, Technology Comments

Microsoft launched on Tuesday Office 365, a unified cloud-based business software that combines all applications a business model needs, as announced on their website.

Office 365 brings together the Office desktop software with Microsoft Web Apps, Sharepoint, Exchange, and Lync, which is formerly the Office Communications Server, which is the first time all these applications are being made available as a single offering, Microsoft says.

Office 365 is more than a new brand. It’s a progressive approach to cloud applications,” said Kurt DelBene, president of the Microsoft Office Division.

“We designed Office 365 to work for a business of one – or a business of one million and one.” Mr. DelBene added.

According to Microsoft, this is their action to shift into a hybrid approach to cloud computing, with the combination of the existing Office software and the company’s Web-based applications.

Office 365 is said to be globally available next year, and its family will expand to provide new services to new audiences.

Also next year, in the latter months, Microsoft is set to introduce Office 365 for education for students, faculty and school staff.

Dynamics CRM Online will also join the Office 365 family of services next year, giving customers a more complete business productivity experience, Micorsoft said.

Meanwhile, a limited Office 365 Beta is now open in seven languages and thirteen countries and regions around the world.

This includes Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Spain, the United Kingdom and United States, starting on October 19 at noon Pacific Time.

Microsoft is inviting everyone to visit Office365.com.
