Microsoft Office is a family of client software, server software, and services developed by Microsoft. Initially a marketing term for an office suite (bundled set of productivity applications), the first version of MS Office contained Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint. MS Office helps simplify basic office tasks and improve work productivity. Each application is designed to address specific tasks, such as word processing, data management, making presentations and organizing emails. Some of the new features include a new read mode in Microsoft Word and a presentation mode in Microsoft PowerPoint. There is also an improved touch and inking feature in all of the Office programs. The Office Web Apps suite was also updated for Office 2013, introducing additional editing features and interface changes.
