As with Windows 8, many enterprises are still deciding whether or not Microsoft Office 2013 is worth the expense and effort of migration. While the latest version includes enhancements to Word, Excel and PowerPoint and also better integration with social networking, some organizations still balk at the interface. Will you be upgrading to Office 2013? If so, what pushed you to migrating to it?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I have upgraded but haven’t seen many others do so. I’m not crazy about the Metro feel but, overall, the programs seem snappier and have many “quirk” fixes. As for an enterprise upgrade, you’d have to think long and hard about it. It’s likely not worth it.

Here are a couple of pieces I’ve written that provide more information:

    I use basically only 2 of the Office features Word/Excel (not counting Outlook). So unless I'm forced to upgrade it's working fine for me. The only other reason for an upgrade would be if I am sharing documents with others who are required to use the higher version.  You can always save you doc at a lower version level in needed.

    In our IT Department, we all have laptops running Windows 8 - and I doubt we will ever roll it out to our user base. Two of us run Office 2013 as well, although the company switched over to Office 2010 about a year and a half ago, and I can't see any advantages large enough to warrant changing software again until there is a distinct advantage to putting our staff through another change.
