Are you still using a PC or a desktop powered by Windows? Are you still opening documents with Microsoft Office? Are you still using Excel and Power Point? You will be dead soon, together with all such prehistoric pieces of hardware and software, or so does Keith Rabois, VC at Khosla Ventures say, quoted by Business Insider. Everything you use from the Microsoft Office suite is a dying breed and this is showed by the poor sales it makes and predicted by the rise of software so advanced and so world – wide used, that make the Office suite like the Neanderthal brother of the creaturelike robot we told you about not so long ago.
But is this all true? Is Microsoft Office suite dying? Recent speculations and news show exactly the contrary. There have been long rumored developments inside Microsoft that show that the company is more and more interested in offering high quality cross-platform device management solutions and there are at least two such developments we should look forward to, as they are supposedly unveiling today.
First and foremost, let’s talk about Microsoft Office for iPad suite, a product which is said to be brought to the world through Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella who programmed a press brief today in order to release some news
focused on the intersection of cloud and mobile computing
What can it all be about? Tipsters and tech experts are placing their money on the unveiling of the Microsoft Office for the iPad suite or / and the unveil of the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) – described as an enterprise suite dedicated to all those large scale consumers who need to
manage centrally iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Windows devices and more,
according to tech journalists who investigated the problem, but so far, Microsoft officials don’t want to share more information than they already have: the press brief held by Satya Nadella is scheduled today from San Francisco and will be streamed at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET on the Microsoft News Center. So we will soon find out how dead is the Office suite and what plans has Microsoft to keep us interested with for the years to come. However, the Microsoft Office for iPad suite doesn’t sound half bad for the MS Office fans.
