Oracle has unveiled Cloud Office and Open Office 3.3, two complete, open standards-based office productivity suites for the desktop, Web and mobile devices, which help users improve productivity, reduce costs and achieve innovation across the enterprise.
The new suite is based on the Open Document Format (ODF) and open Web standards, that enables users to share files on any system as it is compatible with both legacy Microsoft Office documents and modern web 2.0 publishing.
Oracle said that the Office products allow users to gain personal productivity, Web 2.0 collaboration and enterprise-integrated document tools on Windows, Mac, Linux, Web browsers and smartphones.
In addition, the Office APIs and open standards-based approach provides IT users with flexibility, lower short and long-term costs and freedom from vendor lock-in – enabling organisations to build a complete Open Standard Office Stack.
The Cloud Office and OpenOffice 3.3 are enterprise-class office productivity suites that provide applications for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, database and drawings.
The company said that both products allow for ubiquitous document authoring and that the Cloud Office 1.0 is a Web and mobile office suite that enables web 2.0-style collaboration and mobile document access.
Oracle Open Office 3.3 includes new enterprise connectors to Business Intelligence, E-Business Suite, other applications and Microsoft Sharepoint, to allow seamless integration into existing enterprise software stacks.
