Why Read This Report

At home and at work, people overwhelmingly use Microsoft Office. Yet Forrester continues to receive questions about office productivity tool options. So, we recently surveyed 155 IT decision-makers with influence over productivity toolkit decisions to find out: 1) what tools they are using; 2) whether they plan to upgrade to Office 2013, make no change, or make a switch; and 3) why they are choosing their particular path. This report provides an update on desktop and web-based office productivity tool adoption, plans to adopt cloud email, and how firms manage major Microsoft Office upgrades.
