Microsoft Launches Office 365

Ainsley Jones

Microsoft launched Microsoft Office 365, a cloud-based productivity suite, a day after Ray Ozzie, who is credited with spearheading the company's move to cloud computing, announced his departure.


Office 365 will compete directly with Google Apps, says The Money Times. Microsoft has also focused on specific consumer segments to widen the appeal of its new SaaS offering. Businesses with fewer than 25 employees can use the service for $72 a year. Microsoft is providing larger companies with a blend of services for $2 to $27 per user.
