Over the past year, Office has gained incredible momentum, with people around the world using our apps and services in the cloud and on all devices to be more productive wherever they go. Along with this period of usage growth, Office has also grown tremendously as a platform. For example, the share of users connecting third-party apps and services to Office 365 has quadrupled over the last 12 months. This is a testament to the fact that—as useful as Office is on its own—we can help people be even more productive by partnering with developers to build solutions tailored to our customers’ business needs.
At Ignite this week, Microsoft is announcing the next set of Office platform functionality, giving developers the tools they need to build even more compelling productivity applications with the Office platform.
