About Commercial Solutions for Office Software
In the world of business, there are many ways in
which a business will take to achieve its objectives
and often, they will use commercial solutions for
office software ("A New Day for Office
Productivity Solutions."). This form of software grants a
business to document daily operations, share those
documents, and present them. Having the ability to
do this through these programs allows for a business
to prioritize its daily operations and log information.
Some of the most important softwares available for
office productivity are Microsoft Office, Google Tools,
and Apache OpenOffice. Office productivity software is
widely available in a few forms: hard copy, downloaded
over the internet, and operated on the internet. The
hard copies are sold in brick and mortar stores such
as Staples, Office Max, and Office Depot just to
name a few. Hard copies are then uploaded to a PCs
storage by the user. As for the software downloaded
over the internet, the package remains the same but
allows the end consumer to have the convenience of
installing it wherever they might be. Lastly, the
software that is useable over the internet lets
the user create, edit, save, and access files
through a cloud computing service. Google Tools
offers this cloud computing service ("20 Best
Office Software Solutions in 2019.")
and the new Microsoft Office
2019 version has moved towards this feature too
("Comparing Microsoft Office to Open Source Alternatives," 2016).
As stated previously, these programs can run directly
on the OS or through the cloud on a web browser.
When ran directly on the PC, the files will be saved
to the storage unit while it will be saved to the
cloud when on a web browser. One aspect of saving to
the cloud will require internet access while the
installed software will not need internet access.
They can be run on Windows, Mac OS, Android, and
Linux ("Comparing Microsoft Office to
Open Source Alternatives," 2016).
