10 things we love about Microsoft Office 2013

Features like improved deployment options, better security, and a strong cloud connection make Office 2013 nice and IT-friendly

10 things we love about Microsoft Office 2013

Office 2013 was designed with IT admins in mind. The new version of Office features improved deployment options, better security, and a strong cloud connection.

Improved interface

The sleek, modern interface provides fast access to server admin tools, Office applications, and SharePoint site editing.

Cloud connectivity

Cloud connectivity enables workers to access files across multiple devices - and stream Office applications to Windows PCs.

Multiple input options

Office 2013 applications are equally at home with keyboard and mouse as they are with touch and stylus.

More social

Office 2013 is far more social, with the addition of Skype and Yammer; the latter provides microblogging within SharePoint 2013 communities.

OneNote is touch-friendly

OneNote and Lync are the initial Office Windows 8-style apps; OneNote MX's radial menu is especially touch-friendly.

New dev tools

New development tools let enterprises build their own Office and SharePoint apps and distribute them through Microsoft or internal app stores.

Better contacts

Office 2013's People Card tool provides detailed information about you and your contacts.

Built-in DLP

Exchange 2013 includes data loss prevention and e-discovery capabilities to monitor and protect data.

Improved user experience

SharePoint 2013's simplified user experience saves effort for content contributors and developers alike.

Powerful PowerPoint

The PowerPoint presenter view provides extra control over shows, such as previews of upcoming slides, while collaboration tools enable co-authoring.
