The next-generation productivity suite
Improved Office apps
Office 2019 is the next on-premises version of Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
Create and share professional-looking documents with state-of-the-art editing, reviewing, and sharing tools. The new Design tab provides quick access to features, and Smart Lookup shows relevant contextual information from the web directly inside Word.
Analyze and visualize your data in new and intuitive ways with a fresh user interface plus your favorite keyboard shortcuts. Leverage features like Analysis Toolpak, Slicers, and Formula Builder to save time, so you can focus on insights.
Create, collaborate, and effectively present your ideas with new slide transitions and an improved Animations task pane. Threaded comments alongside your slides help you incorporate feedback into your presentations.
New IT Value
Office 2019 also includes new IT value for enhanced security and streamlined administration.
Reduce costs and improve security
We introduced Click-to-Run (C2R), a modern deployment technology, in Office 2013, and it’s now used to deploy and update Office across hundreds of millions of devices worldwide. With Office 2019, we’re moving the on-premises versions of Office to C2R to reduce costs and improve security.
Enterprise-focused management capabilities
C2R offers the same enterprise-focused management capabilities as Microsoft Installer (MSI) based products and will also support an in-place upgrade when you move to Office 2019 from older MSI-based products. The advantages of C2R include predictable:
up-to-date apps on installation
reduced network consumption*
easy upgrade path to Office 365 ProPlus
* Reduced network consumption through Windows 10 download optimization technology.
