Microsoft Kills Office 365 Project Osaka, But Did Not Provide Details About Its Action
Microsoft reportedly developed this new tool, which it called Project Osaka, for its cloud-based productivity software suite, Microsoft Office 365. The new Office 365 app seems to focus on helping IT teams to organize data in tables in a more collaborative way. Unfortunately, not much information was given about this new Office 365 tool.
What is Project Osaka
There's not much information about this mysterious tool. Project Osaka, which currently in private preview, seems to have some roots with the Microsoft Access, according to ZDnet.
According to Petri, Project Osaka is a tool that allows anyone to organize information in a smarter way and also collaborate in real time.
Other speculated that this new tool may work similar to Microsoft's main competitor, Google Sheets, which is used to organize information and collaborate in real time.
The software giant has not provided much information about the existence of this new tool, nor for which kind of customer is it being designed. The closest the crowd can get is from the recently published works made by Twitter user WalkingCat, a well-known reliable Microsoft source.
According to WalkingCat, Project Osaka could be very well the same with CollabDB which was also in private testing for the last two years. WalkingCat said that Microsoft CollabDB was just some sort of an Office Lists App, where it focused more on creating and sharing lists with the team. Microsoft has decided to change its plans for this project after the Wunderlist acquisition in 2015.
