Coming Soon: Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office

Many of you may have heard of a company called DocVerse that was acquired earlier this year by Google. With this acquisition, Google had a vision, that has become a reality, where people could experience the benefits of web-based collaboration using traditional Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint desktop applications. Since that acquisition, the DocVerse team has been moving the product to the Google infrastructure and has given it the name Google Cloud Connect.

Google Cloud Connect

What Google Cloud Connect has to offer is this:

  • People can continue to use the familiar Microsoft Office interface, while reaping many of the benefits of web-based collaboration that Google Docs users already enjoy.
  • Users of Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 can sync their Office documents to the Google cloud, without ever leaving Office. Once synced, documents are backed-up, given a unique URL, and can be accessed from anywhere (including mobile devices) at any time through Google Docs.
  • Once in the Google cloud, documents can be easily shared and even simultaneously edited by multiple people, from right within their Microsoft Office product.

Google Cloud Connect will be available to everyone for FREE. If you would like to be notified when it is released you can complete the Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office Notification Form [HERE] .

    I wonder how many will consider the implications of uploading company documents to someone else’s servers.

    Particularly a company that excels at data mining…

    .. sigh.
