Global software giant Microsoft Corp. will launch the latest version of its popular application suite MS Office 2010 for Indian users in June, a top official said here Thursday.

“The Office 2010 will be available for both businesses and consumers in June,” Microsoft Corp.’s India Chairman Ravi Venkatesan told reporters here on the sidelines of an seminar on social inclusion here.

The latest version features office web applications which will include online versions of MS Word, Excel, Power Point and OneNot. It will allow sharing and collaboration of documents and files.

Microsoft had already released the beta version, a soft launch, of MS Office 2010 and related web applications in November 2009.

Early this month, the company also unveiled in India its latest offering in the area of cloud computing called Windows Azure that will help companies share software and storage facilities and bring down their total IT spend by as much as 50 per cent.

In cloud computing, companies share computer resources, such as servers, software and data storage, through the internet, instead of setting up such infrastructure at their own end.
