Microsoft in the Cloud: 2 New Offerings

Officially rolling out today, and developed by their in-house legal department Microsoft’s Matter Center for Office 365 is receiving good reviews. Designed with attorneys in mind, it allows real-time access and simultaneous collaboration both internally and externally to documents across all devices. Additional features include the ability to control who can view and edit documents and track changes with automatic version control.

Released nearly a year ago in Beta, Microsoft Sway is more than just a presentation application. It also permits sharing of reports, newsletters and personal stories. A unique feature is its suggested searches that assist with finding relevant images, videos, tweets, and other content that you can easily drag and drop into your creation.  It is available on the Web, Windows 10, iPhone, and iPad.
