Let me try to define (my version of) Office 2.0.
Office 2.0 should offer anÂ a la carteÂ of collaborativeÂ applications as products/services from which users/businesses can choose from.
Key points to note in Office 2.0 are…
1. The users should be able to choose from a la carte of applications
2. The offerings should be available both as a product and as a service
3. All of these products/services should have collaboration features built-in
Let me explain each of these points….
1. a la carte of applications:
How many of us use all the components of MS Office for example that comes with just one price tag? In my case, I just use Word and a PPT. The rest like Excel etc are of no use. Even Outlook is of no use for me as I use Zoho Virtual Office. But we end up paying for the whole package which in my view is not right. For those who use all apps in office suit, probably it is worth the price tag.
