Microsoft Office 2010 and Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans

May 25, 2009

Microsoft business clients of Onsite Computer Service in New Orleans are starting to email questions regarding the next version of Microsoft Office, Office 2010. Microsoft Office 2010 (previously referred to by its codename Office 14) is the next version  of the Microsoft Office productivity suite for Windows

Included in Office 2010, is InfoPath 2010, OneNote 2010, Outlook 2010, PowerPoint 2010, Project 2010, Publisher 2010, SharePoint Designer 2010, SharePoint Workspace 2010, Visio 2010, and Word 2010.
Following the release of Office 2007, many users questioned how many additional user-friendly features Microsoft can offer in its next version of the productivity suite for Windows.  Office 2010 will take advantage of some of Windows 7’s features. For example, Office will make use of a new feature called “Jump Lists” which allow users to perform tasks directly from the taskbar. Those that have both Windows 7 and Office 2010 will be able to drag an Office file from a Jump List directly into an e-mail,  a new message, a new contact, or to schedule a meeting with just two clicks – all big time-savers for the average Office 2010 / Windows 7 user.
Earlier this week  (http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/news/2009/05/office-2010-technical-preview-in-july-2009-sign-up-now.ars) Microsoft revealed the first to receive betas of Office 2010 would be select testers on an invite-only basis.  Office 2010 will be more “role-based” than previous versions of Office. Simon Witts, corporate vice president for Microsoft’s Enterprise and Partner Group, claims that there would be features tailored to employees in “roles such as research and development professionals, sales persons, and human resources.”
Many Onsite Computer Service clients will be interested to see and utilize the ‘role-based’ Office 2010.  Hopefully, Office 2010 will not present users with so many functions that Office 2010 becomes known as function overloaded.  We all expect a learning curve associated with new software; however function overloaded software presents such a formidable learning curve that some users avoid adoption of new releases.
Stay tuned as Onsite Computer comments on new developments of Office 2010 and the need to consider the upgrade upon release by Microsoft.
