Microsoft will increase the number of business-scenario specific add-ons for its Office 2003 products and make them available at no charge to all Office users, the company says. Called Office Solution Accelerators, the add-ons are packages of components, templates, and architectural guidelines designed to help users streamline specific business tasks using Office 2003 applications. The company already offers two accelerators, one for recruiting and one for proposals. Microsoft has specified four more accelerators that it plans to deliver before the end of its fiscal year on June 30, and has set a goal to offer a further 12 in its next financial year, the company says in a statement. A spokesperson declined to say what accelerators it is working on for the next fiscal year.
