Microsoft Project and Visio Will Come to Office 365

Microsoft Office 365, the cloud-based service from Microsoft (read our take on it here), already supports Outlook/Exchange, SharePoint, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Lync. We’ve reported that BlackBerry Enterprise Server is coming to 365 as well. What else can you expect to see in Microsoft’s cloud in the future?

According to Mary Jo Foley, Dynamics CRM Online and Windows Intune have already confirmed. And Microsoft Business Solutions Corporate Vice President Michael Park let slip that Project and Visio are on the way as well.

Foley reports that Project and Visio for 365 would likely arrive at the same time as Office 15, which may be as far off as late 2012 or early 2013.

Some of the technology needed to enable this already exists. Microsoft Project Server is already available as a hosted service from some Microsoft partners (but not as part of 365), and there’s SharePoint has the capability of serving displaying Visio files in-browser.

Dynamics CRM for 365 is expected by the end of 2011. There’s no word yet on when Intune security will be available for 365.
