Microsoft New Zealand Kick Starts Windows Vista, 2007 Microsoft Office and Exchange Server 2007 Launch
Microsoft Corp.’s New Zealand-born Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Chris Liddell has introduced WindowsVista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system to a business audience in Auckland.

The event marks the beginning of the most significant product launch in the company’s history and the first simultaneous release of Microsoft’s flagship products since the joint launch of Windows 95 and Office 95 more than a decade ago.

According to Microsoft New Zealand’s Managing Director, Helen Robinson, the new products are designed to boost businesses productivity in a world of instant communication, expanding information and constant change.

During testing, customers from around the world downloaded more than five million beta versions of the three products and provided valuable feedback and suggestions. Customer feedback was gathered from more than one billion user sessions.

Some of the New Zealand businesses who have been trialling the new products include Beca Group, Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand, Telecom New Zealand, Waikato Insitute of Technology (Wintec), NorthTec, Chapman Tripp and the Ministry of Transport.

Microsoft Windows Vista, the 2007 Microsoft Office system and Exchange Server 2007 also provide the core platform that will enable businesses to take advantage of the benefits of Internet-based software services. All three products incorporate key XML and Web services technologies that will help companies tap into online services and select the mix of on-premise and hosted applications.

Microsoft Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system will be available to consumers early in 2007.
