Microsoft CEO Steve Balmer has just completed his official launch presentation of Office 365, Office in the Cloud. This collaboration suite is available today in 40 markets around the world.

This service offers all the convenience of Microsoft Exchange, Lync, Office and SharePoint in a convenient and cost-effective service hosted up in the Microsoft cloud online. More details on this platform can be obtained from

SharePoint 2010 in the cloud had a few features that I am looking forward to investigate, specifically the way they have made the public facing site templates to edit the header logo by double clicking the logo location. I have also noticed the zones for content seem to be editable by the user. I hope all these features can be ported back to the full SharePoint 2010 environment. I can see these features bringing increased flexibility for our end users when creating their content. More on that in a future post.
