Microsoft has introduced some fish-hooks for the perpetual version of Office, however.
Microsoft took a stab at quantum computing today. The Windows 10 S devices include HP Stream 14 Pro, Acer Aspire 1, Acer Swift 1 and Lenovo V330. HP's specifications for the machine include an unspecified Celeron processor, 4GB of single-channel DDR3L memory, and 64GB of eMMC. The company said it will detail more features in Office 2019 in the coming months.
Shaw said Microsoft will be integrating LinkedIn graphs to create a more modern workplace for Office 365.
Windows 10 S also provides built-in protection against phishing attacks and malicious software, two primary attack vectors for hackers targeting businesses.
Microsoft's strategy for helping its customers use one of the more exciting developments in cloud computing - serverless technologies - continues to evolve, and the company is ready to expand Azure Functions to several other services under its umbrella, including its shiny new database. There is a host of new features planned as well.
What's Microsoft after with M365 F1? These cloud services are becoming mission-critical, and the proper management of them will become as important as making sure the backups are running properly. Microsoft Connections, Listings and Invoicing are joining Teams, Bookings, Planner and Customer Manager to produce the most complete one-stop source for small business applications I've ever seen.
Microsoft Office 365 Marketing chief Ron Markezich kicked off the conference this week with a slide entitled "Microsoft 365 Teamwork: Where to Start a Conversation".
And what's a "Microsoft 365-powered device?" They announced new integrations, expanded capabilities, and partnerships toward addressing issues in cybersecurity for organizations around the world. "This is emerging the new battle ground for cloud supremacy". It will be offered through Microsoft 365. In addition to this, a containerised version will be available for Docker.
The popularity of the Linux version has also been gauged as it received in excess of two million downloads of the SQL Server for Linux Docker image in the preview period.
Take Invoicing, for example.
Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS), a collection of device- and user-management services and tools, combined with a set of advanced security features and services. But we recognize that moving to the cloud is a journey with many considerations along the way. The company added that Microsoft Teams will be the "hero and primary experience for all voice, video and meetings".
Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS - software, platform, and Infrastructure as a Service.
