A Glimpse At The Best And Worst Of Office 2010

Fluent UI Extended, Groove Becomes SharePoint Workspace, Web Apps Debut

Why Read This Report

When Microsoft Office 2010 arrives for consumers in June, many enterprises will have the opportunity to upgrade through their existing licensing programs. For others, upgrade plans may not be as clear. In Office 2010, the Fluent user interface (UI) that iWorkers loved to hate completes its transformation of the application suite. For those past the trauma of the design change, the upgrade should be relatively painless. In fact, the reimagining of Groove as the SharePoint Workspace and Web Apps might even lead to cheers as the ability to collaborate more easily with external partners, online or offline and authenticated or not, becomes reality. But with increasing competition and commoditization of productivity tools, Microsoft must convince enterprise buyers that Office 2010 provides compelling value to justify the upgrade effort and costs.
