The next version of Microsoft's popular office suite, codenamed Office 15, on Monday entered the technical preview phase, allowing a select group of NDA-bound customers to test early builds of the software suite and provide valuable feedback in the process. The launch of the Office 15 Technical Preview Program, a significant development milestone, was announced by PJ Hough, CVP of Development in Microsoft's Office Division, in a post on the Office blogs site.
``At this early point in our development cycle, I'm not able to share too much about Office 15, but I can tell you Office 15 is the most ambitious undertaking yet for the Office Division. With Office 15, for the first time ever, we will simultaneously update our cloud services, servers, and mobile and PC clients for Office, Office 365, Exchange, SharePoint, Lync, Project, and Visio. Quite simply, Office 15 will help people work, collaborate, and communicate smarter and faster than ever before,� wrote Hough.
