In 2010, the idea was simple—bring together the Microsoft productivity suite, including Office, SharePoint Online, Exchange Online and Lync Online, in an always-up-to-date cloud service and charge a predictable monthly subscription.
Since then, we’ve added hundreds of new markets around the world and seen incredible growth in the adoption of Office 365. Over time, the service has evolved to be much more than a one-size-fits-all productivity solution, it must empower every user in every country, regardless of their unique needs and requirements.
As our service expands, we are constantly reminded that there is no such thing as a typical Office user. To enable our latest market expansion, significant engineering work was required across a number of Microsoft teams to create new languages, cultures, and currencies. Our teams worked tirelessly to meet the highest levels of security, compliance and feature parity; driven by the principle to deliver the same first-class experience to every market we touch.
Today, we are announcing the availability of the world’s best cloud productivity tools in:
As part of our ongoing effort to meet the communication, collaboration and other productivity needs of every person, we continue to make regular updates and improvements to Office 365. We keep working to make sure Office 365 is available when and where you need it, and plan to launch a significant number of new markets over the next year. Stay tuned for more updates.
