After all the speculations, the teasers and spoilers, Windows 10 was finally released July 29th of this year.

Touted as Microsoft’s brave attempt at replacing the laptop with a tablet, the Surface Pro 3 has more than just delivered on the hype. The Surface Pro 3 can be used as a standalone tablet with a robust high-resolution display and extremely fast performance. When asked about its relevance to the business landscape, one managed services provider pointed out that the Surface Pro 3 is perfect for businesses that are looking to improve and enhance workforce mobility. The Surface Pro 3 does not skimp on utilities either, as it can work as a fully functional laptop but is thinner and lighter for easier portability.
Although not technically launched this year, Office365 has gained quite a boost in popularity especially when it comes to businesses.
