This blog post is brought to you by Jane Liles Group Program Manager for the Excel team. With this post she kicks off a brand new blog series introducing all the features we have added across Excel for the release of Office 2013.
Greetings from the Excel team hallway…
By now you’ve hopefully tuned into our Office Next blog, which provides all-up view of our latest release for Office, and seen some articles on the web. Today I have the privilege of sharing a high-level view of Excel 2013, a release that arrives on the heels of Excel’s 25th anniversary. The team has been working hard to deliver the next version, and we’re excited to be able to share Excel 2013 Preview with you and hear your feedback.
Excel is a powerful spreadsheet and data analysis application, with hundreds of capabilities that can help you organize and make sense of the data and numbers in your life. We’ve made several investments in Excel 2013 to empower our users by bringing these and more capabilities to you in ways that are easy, intuitive, and enjoyable. But before I tell you about where we focused our efforts, I’d like to share a little about how we got there.
On Monday in San Francisco we took the wraps off of the new
Office's touch experience designed for Windows 8. We showed the new touch-optimized
Windows 8-style app for OneNote, and we showed how we've touch-enabled Word,
Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and other apps on the desktop. The new Office is
designed for a great experience whether you're sitting on a couch with a
tablet, or at a desk with a mouse and keyboard. It makes common tasks fast,
fluid, and intuitive, while still enabling the rich capabilities required to
create high-quality documents. In this
post I'll walk you through the thinking, engineering process and design
framework we used to reimagine these experiences for touch.
The transitions that organizations and people are making to the cloud enable many new opportunities for sharing with others. We believe that the best way to leverage the cloud is to connect the best-of-breed applications to feature-rich services. We do not believe that a one-size-fits-all browser based solution is suitable to meet the needs of both work and personal computing because it misses so many opportunities to leverage the power of rich applications. We know that people work online and offline - internet connectivity should never be a barrier to productivity. These beliefs underlie our work in connecting Office to the cloud and shape our philosophy for the entire release.
In this post, we'd like to talk about how we've taken Office and connected it more naturally to the cloud. Let us know what you think about these new capabilities and please give us feedback about what you'd like to hear more about in the coming posts.
In this week's webinar, you'll learn about the master key of shortcuts: the Quick Access Toolbar. With this tool (in Office 2007 and Office 2010), you can have your favorite commands right in front of you no matter what Office program you have open.
What you will learn at Tuesday's webinar:
Today, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer unveiled the customer preview of the new Microsoft Office, available at www.office.com/preview. The next release brings the familiar Office applications to a range of devices, including the hottest new Windows 8 tablets. The new Office also has a fast and fluid design that works with touch, stylus, mouse, or keyboard. It's also social, and unlocks modern scenarios in reading, note taking, meetings, and communications, all delivered through a personalized cloud service that's always up to date.

Poor Jake, his smart business proposal has them in the palm of his hands, but his fatal mistake is too many online places to call home. Office 365 has a better way to bring all your business email addresses and domains together and give your customers an easy way to interact with you.
