At the 2008 Microsoft Office System Developer Conference, Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates announced new software, services and tools that will further enable developers to build the next wave of business applications using the familiar Microsoft Office system.
Gates stressed that there is a great opportunity for developers to take advantage of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, one of the fastest-growing server businesses in Microsoft history, and its capabilities to directly connect users with the business processes and data they rely on to do their jobs.
“Almost half of ISVs and IT developers worldwide are using the Microsoft Office system to build business applications because Microsoft Office is such an effective way to unlock business data stored in back-end systems,” Gates said. “With applications and services built on the Microsoft Office system, developers can make it easier for employees to connect to information and business processes.”
