Microsoft Office 2016 is scheduled for release during the second half of this year. However, Office 365 commercial clients have the opportunity to preview Office 2016 prior to it's full release. As expected, the preview will have some limited features but it will provide commercial users to get a feel for what is to come.
"Of particular interest to IT pros are a number of technical improvements being made to Outlook, the expansion of Data Loss Protection (DLP) to Word, Excel and PowerPoint, new “click-to-run” deployment features for managing Office distributions across a network, extended Information Rights Management protection for Visio, and more. In addition, Microsoft says it’s not making any changes to Macros or Add-ins, so that companies won’t have to deal with compatibility issues during testing." - TechCrunch
Microsoft has also announced the release of Skype for business customers, which is said to replace the current business service, Lync. This new service, Skype for Business will become available in the coming weeks for current users of Lync.
"The software, which was announced at Convergence by CEO Satya Nadella, resembles Skype in look-and-feel, but also includes enterprise-grade security, compliance and control to IT. The service is also built into Office, so features like presence, IM, voice and video calls, and online meetings are a part of the Office experience, the company says." - TechCrunch
