Today, at Microsoft Ignite in Orlando, we announced Office 2019—the next perpetual update for Office. This release, scheduled for the second half of 2018, will include perpetual versions of the Office apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Previews of the new products will start shipping mid-year 2018.
Office 2019 will add new user and IT capabilities for customers who aren’t yet ready for the cloud.
It crazy how focused Microsoft is on Office the product is jumping by leaps and bounds.
