LibreOffice 24.2 Community, the new major release of the free, volunteer-supported office suite and the first to use the new calendar-based numbering scheme (YY.M), is now available
LibreOffice is the only open source personal productivity office suite with a feature set comparable to the leading product on the market. It also offers a range of interface options to suit different user habits, from traditional to modern, and makes the most of different screen form factors by optimising the space available on the desktop to put the maximum number of features just a click or two away.
The biggest advantage of LibreOffice over any other office suite is the LibreOffice Technology engine, a single software platform for all environments: desktop, cloud and mobile. This infrastructure allows LibreOffice to offer a better user experience and, most importantly, to produce identical - and perfectly interoperable - documents based on the two available ISO standards: the Open Document Format (ODT, ODS and ODP) for users concerned about compatibility, resilience and digital sovereignty and the proprietary Microsoft OOXML (DOCX, XLSX and PPTX).
The company's tech leadership eased the product development process, removing barriers to innovation and opening pathways for engineers to advance.
Innovation at scale requires a confluence of people, processes and technology, each of which can present a challenge. Tech talent remains hard to source, system rigidity can impede creativity and tools of the developer's trade are constantly evolving.
Discover Financial Services committed to tackling these challenges through broad digital transformation almost four years ago, an effort dubbed 'Project Runway' by the company's former EVP and CIO Amir Arooni.
