Microsoft Office: Pay-As-You-Go?

In the following video, Motley Fool research analyst Lyons George tells us about Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) announcement that it will be offering its Microsoft Office software suite on a subscription basis, a first for the company. Customers will now be able to choose a $99.99 annual fee, or a $9.99 monthly fee, for a cloud-based subscription to the software. Lyons tells us how this is part of a much larger software trend and why this is great for investors.

It's been a frustrating path for Microsoft investors, who've watched the company fail to capitalize on the incredible growth in mobile over the past decade. However, with the release of its own tablet, along with the widely anticipated Windows 8 operating system, the company is looking to make a splash in this booming market. In this brand-new premium report on Microsoft, our analyst explains that while the opportunity is huge, the challenges are many. He's also providing regular updates as key events occur, so make sure to claim a copy of this report now by clicking here.
