Perhaps one of the things that changed the face of computing altogether is the appearance of office applications that you just cannot live without. Think of how complicated your work would be without MS Word to help you create documents and letters, MS PowerPoint to assist you in making persuasive presentations, MS Access to make databases and forms for business, MS Excel in generating graphs, charts, and tables while using figures and numbers in gearing up company decisions, and other applications such as Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, and others to name a few. With the appearance of the new Office 15 Beta being available for preview, there are 10 things to expect with Microsoft Office 2013 even if you have not installed it into your PCs or laptops yet.
10. Appearance Will Be Different
Thanks to the development of the Windows 8 Operating System Platform, other integrations such as Microsoft Office will also undergo the same kind of facelift in order for it to look just as savvy as the new OS in the market. Expect to see lesser lines, more colors, and cooler animations that could make you think of using the system as if you are not in front of a computer.

Due to the trends of cloud computing, mobile integration, and multi-device support, Microsoft Office 2013 takes a leap into the advanced networking world where you could take advantage of being hooked whether you are using a PC, a laptop, or even a smartphone. All you need to have is a Windows Live ID in order to have your settings brought along with you, even if you are using someone else’s computer.
8. Requirements Will Be More Demanding
Expect that since the new MS Office will provide better performance and look to the office user, more demanding requirements will be asked in order to make every application smooth sailing, together with the OS that makes it shine better. Processor speed now needs to be about 1GHz or greater, RAM now demands 1GB for 32-bit and twice in 64-bit, Windows 7 or 8 can run it (yup, Windows XP and Vista have to pass on this one), graphics should be on DirectX10, and you should have a disk space of 3.5GB.

Back in Office 2010, you need to have the Office 365 along with the application suite in order for you to use certain services such as Exchange Online, sharing and storing files online with SkyDrive, and checking out email over the phone.

6. Business Solutions Will Be More Adaptable
In case that you like to maximize your cloud-computing services to a higher level where you intend to keep yourself connected with workmates, peers, and other groups, then availing the Office 365 Suite should help you keep things going. You may choose to have the Office 365 Home Premium, Small Business Premium, ProPlus, and Enterprise, all different based on PCs to use it, size of SkyDrives to utilize, along with additional corporate features to work with such as professional email, HD video conferencing, and also multi-linking programs such as SharePoint and Lync.
5. Other Systems Will Take Benefit
It is part of reality that not all users prefer to use Windows Mobile, or a Windows PC just to get themselves going. However, since there are many users that recognize the functionality and value of MS Office in everyday activity, others like Mac users, and even Android or iOS owners should be more than happier that the Office 2013 will also be available to them.

Microsoft done one of the best things when it comes to making people excited and making MS Office 2013 the next buzz in town.
