    • “These latest innovations take another big step forward in
      transforming Office from a familiar set of individual productivity apps to a
      connected set of apps and services designed for modern working, collaboration
      and teamwork,” Chief Executive Satya Nadella said in a statement.

    • “Keeping in line with chief executive Nadella’s idea of making the
      company ‘mobile first, cloud first’, Microsoft’s new Office 2016 has been
      configured in such a way that it will not only break through the
      work-space-time continuum making way for increased productivity and efficiency,
      but also encourage more BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) in the country,” Alok
      Lall, Director of Microsoft Office Division, India told the
      Indo-Asian News Service.

    • “At Microsoft we are also capable of deciding and handling
      management rights, privacy of different files, which means the administrator
      can choose how much of what file or resource he wants the user to see or
      edit,” he said, adding, “This is going to encourage more BYOD as it
      saves time and cost for several enterprises, especially small and medium
      businesses.”
    •  
    • The new Office 2016 apps are available in 40 languages and require
      Windows 7 or later versions. Starting Tuesday, Office 365 subscribers can
      choose to download the new Office 2016 apps as part of their subscription,
      Microsoft said.
