June 27, 2012
The cloud service turns one, launches Office 365 for education, wins new customers and expands global footprint.
REDMOND, Wash. - June 27, 2012 - One year ago in New York City, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer unveiled Office 365. Ballmer predicted that Office 365 would give businesses an edge, and that has been true for companies all over the globe.
"Office 365 is a hit with big and small companies alike," said Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice president of the Microsoft Office Division. "I'm delighted to welcome Lowe's, Burger King, Japan Airlines and others that have chosen Office 365."
Now Students Can Get the Edge
Today, the benefits of Office 365 are available for free to students, teachers and faculty with the launch of Office 365 for education. Office 365 for education brings all the familiarity of Office - Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote - and combines it with Microsoft Lync, SharePoint and Exchange to deliver a world-class solution for communication and collaboration.
With the release, leading schools and universities are picking Office 365 for education:Dartmouth College. The unified communications and collaboration capabilities in Office 365 are helping improve secure and reliable collaboration across departments, institutions and global regions. The college will move about 13,500 faculty, student and staff mailboxes to the cloud.Cornell University. Cornell will begin onboarding approximately 7,000 faculty and staff to Office 365 in the fall of 2012, taking advantage of the cloud-based email and calendar support.Gonzaga University: By leveraging SharePoint Online and Lync Online, Gonzaga will be able to provide its Distant Learning Population with seamless access to its online resources portal and anytime collaboration tools. Office 365 will support 8,000 students and 1,200 faculty and staff.
These new customers come on the heels of recent announcements that the Catholic International Education Office , the Scottish government for education and the All India Council for Technical Education are committing to Office 365 for education. In total, these new customers demonstrate that over 12.5 million more students worldwide will now have Office 365 for education.
"This is a major leap forward," said Kurt DelBene, president of the Microsoft Office Division. "People's needs change rapidly, and Office 365 Home Premium will change with them."
Simultaneously, Microsoft today released Office 365 University for college or university students, faculty and staff at a price of just US$79.99 for a four-year subscription - the equivalent of US$1.67 per month. Globally, the company also released updated versions of the traditional Office suite: Office Home and Student 2013, Office Home and Business 2013 and Office Professional 2013. Office 365 for businesses will be released globally with new capabilities on Feb. 27.
Time to Do the Things You Want
In a recent global survey,* nearly 60 percent of people said they don't have the time to do the things they want to do, and more than 80 percent said they could save one or more hours a day if they were better organized. Office 365 Home Premium is designed to help people be more productive from virtually anywhere and find the flexibility to do the things they want.
"Between kids and career, I'm never completely at home or completely at work - and thanks to technology, that suits me just fine," said Jen Singer, an author, blogger and mom of two teen boys. "With Office 365 Home Premium, I can work around my kids' schedules, so I can drive the soccer carpool, coordinate errands while at a doctor's office and still hit my deadlines at work. And, with one subscription for everyone in my family, it's an absolute steal."
To help people find more time to do the things they want, Microsoft is introducing Time to 365 (www.office.com/timeto365), a new crowd-sourced website where people can find and share tips, tricks, ideas and inspiration from around the world.
