Microsoft’s Visio 2013 to come in three editions: Standard, Professional, and Pro for Office 365
Microsoft has revealed that its 2D-object drawing application Visio will come in three flavors: Microsoft Visio Standard 2013, Microsoft Visio Professional 2013 and Microsoft Visio Pro for Office 365. Microsoft has also provided a summary of the main functions available in each of the editions (as seen in the below image).
Microsoft Visio Standard 2013 is designed for people looking for a powerful diagramming platform with a rich set of built-in stencils. Visio Professional 2013, on the other hand, has all the features of Standard 2013 but also comes with updated shapes and templates; enhanced support for team collaboration; and the ability to link diagrams to data. Microsoft Visio Pro for Office 365 will be available via a subscription through Office 365 and comes with the same features in Professional 2013 and Visio on Demand. Visio Pro for Office 365 can be installed on up to five PCs running Windows 7 or Windows 8.
