Samsung has embraced Microsoft Word

Microsoft makes a very popular productivity suite known as Office, Word is an integral part of the suite as its the word processor. The Office suite and its various applications are not only used by individuals and students around the world they’re also used and appreciated by businesses both big and small. Now Redmond can add yet another big corporation to its list of clients. Samsung has decided to give up its own productivity software and embrace Microsoft Word with open arms.

Samsung will cease using its own Korean-language word-processing program called JungUm Global for creating its company documents. The company said Microsoft Office Word is the most adequate word-processing program in the market for creating a “smart” working environment. The move follows a recent business meeting between Samsung vice chairman and heir-apparent Jay Lee and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, though company spokespersons denied any connection with that meeting and the change. The Suwon, Korea-based conglomerate began using Microsoft Word in January this year, and will use JungUm Global until the end of the year, when it will be completely dropped for the Microsoft word processor on January 1, 2015.
