Nel mondo ci sono più di 500 milioni di installazioni di Microsoft Office e secondo gli analisti di Gartner nel
2011 la quota di mercato di questa suite era del 94%. Il livello di diffusione è tale che diventa indispensabile
poter redigere o modificare documenti appartenenti alla suite Microsoft Office anche sul nostro iPad se
desideriamo utilizzare quest’ultimo in ambito professionale o semplicemente se abbiamo la necessità di
leggere e modificare documenti Microsoft Word, PowerPoint o Excel.
Come per i personal computer l’accesso a documenti Microsoft Office può avvenire tramite applicazioni
Page4realizzate ad hoc o tramite servizi cloud che rendono fruibile su iPad l’ultima versione della suite Microsoft
Office che siamo abituati ad usare nel mondo PC o Mac. Ma quale è la soluzione ideale per le nostre
esigenze? La risposta l'avrete da questo libro.
