Microsoft goes to the Cloud

By Wendy Sanacore
It’s the mobile revolution! Everyone is making the shift to mobile and Microsoft is no longer the exception.
This week, Microsoft is wrapping up a revamped version of its Office Software Suite of products with an online version.
The tools, including Outlook, Excel, and Sharepoint will be placed into an online format so customer can use them from any machine that acquires internet access. Microsoft has high hopes that this will increase its profits significantly by extending its reach into the cloud sector of services.
The new set of offerings  is called Office 365.
In fact, Microsoft officials are hoping that the full launch of these products will add some competition to Google.
In October 2010, when Microsoft initially launched a test of these products, it was expected that they would charge $2 per user per month for basic email services up to $27 a month for advanced services.
