Microsoft Office 2016: what's new for businesses?

Margi Murphy | Sept. 24, 2015
Now Microsoft Office 2016 has officially launched, We will take you through the features your business needs.

Intuitive email

Microsoft's email algorithms detect more than just junk mail. Outlook has advanced to reading who is the main subject in an email, and who is simply CC'ed. This allows it to filter emails from those who are either more senior, or who you interact with more, freeing up your inbox for the most important messages.

Sway

Powerpoint has a place in every office - like it or not - but this new storytelling application allows teams working on projects to easily manipulate content from different sources and present and share it with ease.

And for the IT pros...

OneDrive for Business

IT pros will be glad to know that new updates for enterprise will be announced this month - including a new sync client for Windows and Mac, increased file size and volume limits per user, a new user interface in the browser, mobile enhancements, and new IT and developer features, Microsoft revealed today.

Security

Microsoft is adding built-in Data Loss Prevention (DLP) to reduce the risk of sensitive data leaks, by giving IT admins tools to centrally create, manage and enforce policies for content authoring and document sharing.

Multifactor Authentication ensures secure access to content anywhere when employees are away from the corporate network.

It's also adding Information Rights Management to Visio.

Later this year it will introduce Enterprise Data Protection (EDP) in Windows 10, with support in Office Mobile, for secure corporate content sharing across corporate managed apps and network/cloud locations, preventing content inadvertently being shared outside corporate boundaries.
