Talk about being overcrowded…. there are 17 different web-office upstarts that are trying to take on Microsoft Office, reports The Red Herring. Joe Wilcox, an analyst with JupiterResearch explains that since people want to work anywhere, and want access to the data from anywhere, it is no surprise so many players are trying different things. “Microsoft has kept the Office software as is. They are thinking, ‘when you’ve got a good thing going, why mess with it?’,” he tells the magazine. Liam Breck is not buying into the hype around Web Office, and argues that it is a tiny niche. Jason Fried, one of the co-founders of 37Signals offers a more coherent and more balanced answer, when he tells RH, “The modern office is more about real-time collaboration and group chat, and not just a spreadsheet and processor.” I agree – Web Office should not be about replacing the old, but inventing the new web apps that solve some specific problems.
