Office Web Apps Planner Brings Documents to Cloud, Jill Campbell

Lead Product Planner Jill Campbell talks about Office Web Apps, the free, lightweight, Web-based versions of Microsoft Office programs that’ll become available this month, enabling users to access their documents anytime, anywhere. Campbell and her team have been working on a way to guarantee that no one ever again will have to be separated from their Office documents. The connection is through Office Web Apps: free, lightweight, Web-based versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. It’s a way to share for those who don’t have SharePoint, Campbell says. It’s a way to collaborate without getting locked out of a document when someone else is editing it. It’s a way to have access to a document at all times – at work, at home, and while mobile – without e-mailing it to yourself,” said Campbell.

Campbell, who’ll celebrate a decade at Microsoft this Oct, has amassed a unique flight of experiences planning for a wide range of products: Pocket PCs “back in the day, for early wave of mobile,” Windows Longhorn (Vista); Outlook, and MSN, taking it to Japan, Australia, and Latin America.
