Microsoft Office for iPad to be announced tomorrow

Microsoft's newly-appointed CEO, Satya Nadella, is holding a press event tomorrow in San Francisco. Although Microsoft said that the event will focus on cloud and mobile computing, we've heard rumors that the long-awaited Microsoft for iPad will debut tomorrow as well.

So far, the company said that it had nothing to share.

If the rumors are true, then the introduction of Office for iPad will mark Satya Nadella's bold move to veer away from tradition. Former Microsot CEO Steve Ballmer reportedly refused to make Microsoft Office available on the iPad.

Ballmer most likely didn't want the idea because doing so will sabotage the sales of Microsoft's Surface tablets. Either way, only time will tell if the decision was right for Microsoft.

Meanwhile, CNET's Mary Jo Foley is reporting that Microsoft will also unveil another Microsoft suite reportedly called Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite or EMS. Foley says that it will be a licensing bundle for large enterprise customers planning to centrally manage different devices such as iPads, iPhones, Windows devices, and Android devices.

Furthermore, EMS will also offer a way for enterprises to use and buy Microsoft services for bringing your own device (BYOD) purposes. EMS will include Windows Intune, Microsoft's cloud-based device management and security service, Foley added.

Given the case, if EMS will indeed debut tomorrow, it will definitely summarize Nadella’s “mobile first, cloud first” strategy.
