Microsoft Office 2007 Professional (formerly known as Office 12) helps professionals work FASTER, stay organized, and manage contacts and customer information in one place. It is a Complete Office Suite of Applications for any Business.
Visualize data more effectively. Forecast, track, and manage projects and opportunities. And produce professional-quality marketing materials entirely in-house. Discover the quickest way to more easily find, organize, analyze, and use all the information you need to succeed.
Microsoft Office 2007 contains a number of new features, the most notable of which is the entirely new graphical user interface called the Fluent User Interface (initially referred to as the Ribbon User Interface), replacing the menus and toolbars.
It have been the cornerstone of Office since its inception. The ‘Ribbon User Interface’ is a task-oriented Graphical User Interface (GUI). It features a central menu button, widely known as the ‘Office Button’.
Office 2007 also includes new applications and server-side tools. Chief among these is Groove, a collaboration and communication suite for smaller businesses, which was originally developed by Groove Networks before being acquired by Microsoft in 2005. Also included is Office SharePoint Server 2007, a major revision to the server platform for Office applications, which supports “Excel Services”, a client-server architecture for supporting Excel workbooks that are shared in real time between multiple machines, and are also viewable and editable through a web page.
Microsoft FrontPage has been removed from the Office suite entirely. It has been replaced by Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer, which is aimed towards development of SharePoint portals. Its designer-oriented counterpart Microsoft Expression Web is targeted for general web development. However, neither application has been included in Office 2007.
Speech recognition and handwriting recognition are now part of Windows Vista. Speech and ink components have been removed from Office 2007. Handwriting and speech recognition work with Office 2007 only on Windows Vista or Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. However, XP users can use an earlier version of Office to use speech recognition.
