TITUS Classification Solutions Now Support Microsoft Office 2013

Microsoft Office 2013 has been available to corporate customers for about 4 months, and it was released to the public in February of this year.  Office 2013 is available via its traditional packaging, and is now also available via the Office 365 subscriptions.   The Office 365 subscription allows customers to stream the Office 2013 install to their desktop.  In either case there are a number of major changes to Office in this release. 

Some of the changes in Office 2013 may involve a change in the user’s workflow.  For instance, in Outlook 2013 Microsoft has streamlined the process of shooting off a quick reply in Outlook 2013. Instead of clicking Reply to open up a new email, you can simply start typing and reply inline on the message itself.

In addition to user interface changes, Microsoft has made changes to the object model used to build applications on top of Office.  The most radical addition has been apps for Office, which brings the web to Office client applications by adding browser-like features. This shifts the development focus from a proprietary language (Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications) to web-based languages (HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, etc.) that enable organizations to use their web development skills for Office development.

Today TITUS is making available the Service Release for Office 2013 Compatibility for both the TITUS Message Classification and TITUS Classification for Office products.  These new releases fully support Office 2013.  If you want to use the TITUS Classification solutions with Office 2013 this is the release you should install.

Because of the changes Microsoft made to both the user interface and the object model, previous versions of TITUS Message Classification and TITUS Classification for Office including versions 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5 will not be supported for use with Office 2013.

The good news is that TITUS customers who have current maintenance agreements will automatically receive the Service Release for Office 2013 Compatibility at no cost.
