Microsoft has just kicked off its WPC conference and is already dropping some big statistics from its Office divison by saying that Office is on over a billion desktops. That deployment range is massive and really shows that Office is the de facto platform for corporate productivity.
While Office is currently doing quite well, the platform is expanding with the recent Yammer acquisition and of course Office 2013 is right around the corner that will further expand the footprint of the productivity suite.
Without a doubt Office is clearly the leading product in the segment and Microsoft is well aware of this. By shipping Office with WIndows RT devices, Microsoft is lining up its tablets to be corporate powerhouse devices.
Microsoft's Worldwide Developer Conference is just kicking off and we expect to hear a lot more out of the Microsoft camp over the next couple of days.
