Bringing Windows Office Documents To The Cloud will be important if you work from home but need to edit on the run or you just have a template you adapt “on the spot”.
The connection is through Office Web Apps: free, lightweight, Web-based versions of Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft OneNote.
It’s a way to share for those who don’t have SharePoint, Campbell says. It’s a way to collaborate without getting locked out of a document when someone else is editing it. It’s a way to have access to a document at all times – at work, at home, and while mobile – without e-mailing it to yourself.
“This has huge advantages when you think about what the Web is good for, which is accessing from browsers anywhere, sharing, and collaborating on documents with anyone across the world,” Campbell says.
