Windows 8, Surface and Office 365 to prove popular with businesses

Windows 8, Office 365 and the Microsoft Surface tablet are all expected to be hot products within business in the near future.

That is the opinion of Mark Snider, president of Ingram Micro Canada, who said that each of the three innovations will be worthwhile for organisations and their employees.

As tablets have grown in popularity Windows 8 is coming into its own as it allows businesses and their staff to use the same interface between three devices, making working on the equipment even easier.

"I really think it's going to bring productivity to the next level, but it's also going to bring the smartphone and the tablet into the mainstream for business users," he said.

This will also lead to a boost in popularity of the Microsoft Surface tablet as Mr Snider noted that people are already holding off on purchases to wait for the launch of the device.

With Windows devices and operating systems expected to boom it therefore makes sense that Microsoft Office 365 also sees a rapid uptake.
