Microsoft Rolls Up Cloud Services Into Office 365, Takes Aim At Google Apps
Today at an event in San Francisco, Microsoft's Office division is unveiling a new product: a suite of the company's productivity services called Office 365. Before now, Microsoft's business-facing cloud services have been broken up in a few places: SharePoint, Lync Online, Exchange, and Office web apps. Office 365 looks to unify these. Microsoft SVP Chris Capossela�"This is everything we know about productivity brought to the cloud". The messaging here seems to indicate that Microsoft is more directly targeting Google Apps, the suite of online products that have been increasingly encroaching on Microsoft's enterprise market . In what may have been a jab at Google, Capossela says "We can differentiate from our�competition, particularly those coming from the consumer space, by making sure our servers are far more reliable".
