I just happened to run across this this morning:

"Google Apps is going to launch a new plugin for Microsoft Office called
Cloud Connect. It is a long expected bridge that allows users to
continue using desktop applications that they are already familiar with,
while at the same taking advantages of Google Apps cloud services."

Subject: Authoring tool that works in the cloud?

Hi all --

Is there a DTP or HAT (or both) that works in the cloud? If so, does
anyone have any experience with such a tool?

I'm doing some freelance work for a small company.

Now, they have content created by technical staff. I'm sure you have a
good idea of what it looks like. Everything is paper-based, developed in
Word and distributed in PDF. They have no help. They develop apps in
Java that work with SAP.

We've had some limited discussions about the direction they wish (and
will need) to take with their content, but have not yet reached any
conclusions.

The one stated preference they have is for a tool that will work "in the
cloud". This is a practical consideration, as their employees are
primarily remote. They do a lot of work using iPads and GoogleDocs. The
"cloud" request was made in the context of reviewing, but I'm sure that
if the authoring function were cloud-based, that would be a plus.

Thanks,
Tracey
