As part of your SharePoint 2010 rollout, have you been asked to coordinate with or deploy Office as well? Office Web Apps is a suite of online companions to Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote that enable people to access and do light editing or sharing of Office documents from virtually anywhere. Yes, all of those Office documents in your SharePoint environment can now be viewed and edited from almost any browser, anywhere. Office Web Apps also includes PowerPoint Broadcast Slide Show, allowing users to view PowerPoint presentations live, even when they’re a thousand miles away!
For consumers and small-business users, Office Web Apps will be available on Windows Live as a free service. Business customers licensed for Microsoft Office 2010 through a Volume Licensing program can run Office Web Apps on a server running Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 or Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010.
Office Web Apps is tightly integrated with SharePoint 2010 Products. The Office Web Apps Feature and services integrate with SharePoint’s robust enterprise content management capabilities.
