by on Jan.14, 2011, under Office

As you probably already know, Microsoft Office 2010 has been released and is now available from the Microsoft website as well as retailers across the world. And while we give Microsoft Office 2010 a thumbs up, you may be wondering if upgrading is the right move for you! There are many reason to upgrade and we wanted to provide you with a few to help you make an informed decision. The following are some of the highlights of the features included in Microsoft Office 2010:

  1. New and improved cloud application support. The Microsoft Office 2010 applications integrate better than ever with SharePoint and Microsoft Live Services. And not only do the Microsoft Office 2010 applications work better online, but they also now have ever better offline support, for those times when you don’t have a direct connection to the internet. Office 2010 provides online integration that is otherwise unmatched in the industry.
  2. Continues to be the standard for desktop business productivity. Ever tried to use other Microsoft Office competitors? Ever notice that those products say they are 100% compatible with Office, but there are a 1000 little quirks, or maybe even your favorite Office feature isn’t supported! The Microsoft Office 2010 applications provide unparalleled features and product support.
  3. The Office 2010 Backstage. New to the Microsoft Office 2010 suite of applications is the Backstage. The Backstage is your one-stop shop for much of the main program functionality. Best of all, the Office 2010 Backstage is fully customizable, just as with the Ribbon and provides a host of controls and functionality for building robust Office solutions.
  4. The New Ribbon Builder dialog. The Microsoft Office 2010 applications make it extremely easy to customize, or even build your own custom, Ribbons using the program Options dialog.
  5. Unsaved Lost Document Recovery. Ever closed a document without saving it accidentally? Ever wanted to shoot yourself in the head because of that mistake? You definitely are not the first person to make it (I myself have done it more times than I care to remember)! Well, losing unsaved documents is a thing of the past in Word 2010. With the new improvements to the document recovery pane in Word 2010, you can restore files that were purposefully closed and not saved!
  6. Upgraded E-mail and Internet Security. The Microsoft Office 2010 applications  now have an improved Protected View mode to protects against view malicious e-mail, internet files, and online Office documents.
  7. Better Application Integration. The Microsoft Office 2010 suite of applications provides ever more integration between each of the products. For most applications, there have been massive improvements to integration SharePoint and many of the applications now have a sever version included with SharePoint Server 2010. And all of these features are in addition to the already existing integration between the applications, which is already unparalleled by any other product available in the world!
  8. Excel’s new Sparkline charting features. Microsoft Excel 2010′s new Sparkline charting features allow the user to quickly generate mini charts with just a few mouse clicks. Building quality charts has always been one of the strongest features of Excel and now it is even more powerful and easy to use in Excel 2010!
  9. PowerPoint’s new broadcasting features. Microsoft PowerPoint 2010′s new Broadcast feature allows the user to transmit their presentation over the internet, in real time. You do not need to purchase a server or have some paid service to use this feature either. Simply send an e-mail request to all the people you want to view your presentation and send it off.  Users will be able to watch your PowerPoint 2010 presentation from their browser over the internet!
  10. Cheaper than Office 2007?! So let me get this straight…you get all of the features with the previous versions of Office, plus all of the new features included with Office 2010, and all for a cheaper price than ever before! Now that one is truly hard to believe, especially in this struggling economy!  It seems that Microsoft Office 2010 would be the way to go.
