Office 2007 Revs for Year's End

eWeek | at | by Mike

Before the end of the year, Microsoft plans to roll out 34 suites, programs, servers, services and tools that will form its new 2007 Microsoft Office system family of products, previously known as Office 12.

Retail pricing for the product remains unchanged from Office 2003, John Cairns, senior director of licensing and pricing in Microsoft's Information Worker division, told eWEEK.

Asked about the large number of offerings, Cairns said customers had been telling Microsoft, of Redmond, Wash., about the changing nature of their work and their new and diverse needs. "We believe these offerings will provide the flexibility customers need," he said.
