Microsoft Office is a suite of productivity-based products developed by Microsoft. It is a family of software, including client-software, cloud software, and services in which each program serves a specific purpose. Office includes programs for creating everything from advanced spreadsheets, simple documents, designing presentations, and connecting databases. One of the most widely-used pieces of software around the world, Microsoft Office is one of Microsoft's best products.
The suite of products in Microsoft's Office set of software include Microsoft Word, a word processor; Microsoft Excel, a spreadsheet application; Microsoft PowerPoint, a presentation program; Microsoft Access, a database management system; Microsoft Publisher, an entry-level desktop publishing application; Outlook, a web-based suite of webmail, contacts, tasks, and calendaring services.
Microsoft Office was released in 1990 as a triple product suite for Windows 3.0, including MS Word, MS PowerPoint, and MS Excel. Mail was added in 1991, followed by Access in 1994. Over the years, the number of products kept growing to include Office Manager, Publisher, and a whole slew of other bundled software. Some products have been discontinued, including Microsoft Bookshelf, a reference collection platform, and Microsoft FrontPage, a "WYSIWYG" HTML editor and website administration tool.
As of today, there are several products and services packed into the Microsoft Office suite. Since 2011, Microsoft has also started offering Office 365, a subscription service that includes access to Office applications plus other productivity services over the internet. They even introduced a number of smartphone-specific products called Office Mobile.
