Microsoft recently announced the pre-release of Visio Online and Visio on iPad, which will enable cross-platform consumption of Visio diagrams and empower more people to create, collaborate and communicate visually. Microsoft also introduced a number of key updates to Visio Pro for Office 365, such as one-step data linking for diagrams and advanced design and collaboration with the enhanced AutoCAD support.
Microsoft has also announced the general availability of Office 365 from multiple local datacentres in the United Kingdom. The new U.K. facilities join Microsoft other regional datacentres in Japan, Australia, India and Canada. Local datacentres add in-region data residency, failover and disaster recovery to help address the legal, regulatory and compliance needs of customers in government and highly regulated industries, such as banking and healthcare.
