This year a package of Microsoft Office 2024 applications will be released that will work without a subscription and the Internet

Microsoft is preparing to launch a new version of its office suite of applications, Office, which does not require a subscription and can work without an Internet connection. We are talking about Office 2024, the preview version of which will be released next month, and the stable version will appear later this year.

Office 2024 LTSC edition will be available for purchase as a one-time payment. In recent years, Microsoft has been actively promoting the Microsoft 365 subscription model, which involves service users paying a monthly fee for the services provided. However, the LTSC edition still remains in demand and is aimed primarily at corporate clients who cannot maintain the continuous Internet connection necessary for Microsoft 365 to work.

While Microsoft hasn't gone into detail about what improvements Office 2024 users can expect, it does know that Excel will have dozens of new features, including dynamic charts, and more. The developers have improved the search and meeting tools in Outlook. Note that Office 2024 will not have the Publisher application, as the software giant plans to stop supporting it in 2026. Microsoft has also removed AI tools for Word, Excel and PowerPoint from the suite, despite its commitment to integrating AI functionality across all available products.

Office 2024 is compatible with 32- and 64-bit operating systems and can be used by users of Windows 11, Windows 10 and macOS. Like previous similar releases, Office 2024 LTSC edition will receive updates for five years, followed by an extended support period during which Microsoft will only release security updates. The recommended price for Office LTSC 2024 starts at $149. However, the software giant often makes it possible to purchase applications at a significant discount. For example, Office Professional Plus 2019 currently costs only $39, and Office 2021 costs $45.

The integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into business operations marks a transformative era, enhancing efficiency and innovation across industries. From revolutionizing HR with automated recruitment to aiding early disease detection in healthcare, AI's impact is profound. It enables predictive cybersecurity, personalized customer interactions, and accelerated software development in IT.

“Before the automation introduction, the process was complicated by the fact that the address system was stationary, not dynamic. We could not automate serial and batch accounting of products. It was not possible to automate the warehouse replenishment processes, both planned and on order. The accounting system did not reflect all goods movements,” says Alexander Permyakov, head of the warehouse complex.
