Office 2007 vs 2010 vs 2013 Which is better?
Debate Rounds (3)
Well, I would like to debate this based on two perspectives:
(1) 2007 is clearly an inferior product to both 2010 and 2013. It lacks support for "recent files" and "recent places", and has no office 365 or sharepoint 365 compatibility at all.
(2) If you really want to talk about the most recent version of MS Office, I would like you to consider Office 365, which is their online based (cloud based) service. There are many compelling reasons for believing that both 2013 and 365 are superior products which clearly deserve careful study when considering updating one's office suite.
I will elaborate in later rounds.
Ok, so what's your position then?
Look up Ron Swanson
Well, here's the problem: You basically have two types of companies out there.
(1) small company that wants internet, a website, and basic services (like accounting etc). They typically can't afford to have their own IT department, and while they need a server solution in-house can't afford one or aren't technically savvy enough to run one. Office 365 fixes this by providing all of these on a fixed cost (per user/per month) basis, similar to paying for TV service and phone service.
(2) Large companies that have dedicated IT staff, their own infrastructrure, and their own servers. In the end, they can choose to keep spendin 6-8 figures every year just to keep their infrastructure up to date, or change the paradigm. Move to the cloud. Gain the ability to easily share files, have security, a way to collaborate, a way to form online teams, etc. And again, 365 fixes all of this.
For those times when 365 can't provide a solution (say mail merge operations in MS Word, or pivot charts in Excel), you need a full desktop client. And that's where Office 2010/13 come in. They tie in seamlessly with 365, and will even start and edit documents from within 365. So just from the perspective of cost and implementation, 365 is a winner.
