Tomorrow morning at 7am PDT, Steve Ballmer will host a webcast announcing the general availability of Office 365, Microsoft’s next generation of online services. This is a huge undertaking by Microsoft to convince small and medium businesses to move their mail, documents, and communications to hosted servers run by Microsoft. It’s intended to reposition Microsoft as the leader in online technology and blunt the inroads made by Google and Apple.
If you want an early look, get up and make some coffee and tune in. We’ll be spending an inordinate amount of time talking about this service in 2011 – might as well be ready for it.
