Office for the iPad has finally arrived. You no longer need to rely on third party apps to view or edit your online documents.  There are, of course, caveats to every choice when it comes to technology.  That’s where we can help but here’s a first impression.

 

Microsoft OneDrive

Posted by magnum | MIT Blog

Today at the SharePoint Conference 2014 in Las Vegas, Microsoft shared exciting news about OneDrive for Business, and how they’re making it easier for customers to get up and running quickly in the cloud. They announced that they’re introducing a new standalone OneDrive for Business subscription plan that includes Office Online, and that they’re adding enhancements to SharePoint 2013 in Service Pack 1 (SP1) that enables on-premise SharePoint users to configure OneDrive for Business with just a few clicks. They also showcased improvements to OneDrive for Business that make it easier to use, like the addition of simple controls and new search capabilities.  Of course, OneDrive does not provide the most secure file-sharing platform but for basic business use without confidentiality concerns it may be a good option.
