Microsoft begins work on Office 15

Thursday, December 10, 2009

An interesting article appeared in the blog Microsoft Access Team. While the software package Microsoft Office 2010 (also known as Office 14) continues to be refined and should be released only next summer, the Redmond company specialists, obviously, is to begin planning the next generation office suite.

The report, entitled "Access 15 and SQL Server", expressly states that a planning software package, tentatively called Office 15 have already begun. Specialists Microsoft, in particular, are going to improve in its support of SQL Server, which, according to reports from the user community, is perhaps the most sought-after improvement.

With regard to the timing of the appearance of Office 15, it is so far can only speculate. It is known that the version of Office 2003 was introduced in November 2003, version of Office 2007 - at the end of January 2007, and the release of Office 2010 to be held in June 2010. Therefore, we can assume that the software package, Office 15 might appear in the second half of 2013 or in the first half of 2014.

However, it is possible that Microsoft could combine releases Office 15 and the new operating system, Windows 8 and submit both their development together in 2012. Moreover, such an example already exists - the same way also came into the world of Windows Vista and Office 2007.
