Low cost high quality productivity tools: Office 365

Moore’s Law says that the in the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles approximately every two years. The law is named after Intel Co- Founder Gordon E. Moore, who described this tendency back in 1965. His prediction has been accurate, and  reflects on the speed of how hardware has been evolving in the last years. As the hardware gets better and cheaper in an exponential way, software keeps up. Microsoft Office Suite was introduced in 1990. I still remember using the first version on my Pentium I, thank God! those days of painfully slow computers, limited tools, and complicated interfaces are long gone.

Almost a year after the launch on January 29th 2013, Office 365 is probably the best client application from MS that I have come across. Office 365 integrates the best MS apps that we all know and love very smoothly online. Everything is hosted on a cloud system called Skydrive. The Office 365 suite works now on a subscription base and for Small Businesses is only 60 dollars per year.

Office 365

Microsoft Office 365 opens the door to 27GB of online storage. Here you can share your documents, back up your important information, and access online tools to edit your documents on the go with the online version of the MS Office products. If you don’t mind spending a little on these tools, you are off to a good start. The Suite online is very functional and provides the opportunity to collaborate, store, and share all your documents in a easy and secure way.

Microsoft Office 365 combines with high quality all the benefits off Drop Box, Google Apps and  MS Office in one place. As the new CEO Satya Nadella former Executive Vice-President of Cloud and Enterprise group said last week, “Microsoft is moving into a more integrated cloud first world.” This should be nothing but good news for the 365 suite users.
