Microsoft Office Visio 2007 makes it easy for IT and business professionals to visualize, explore, and communicate complex information. Go from complicated text and tables that are hard to understand to Visio diagrams that communicate information at a glance. Instead of static pictures, create data-connected Visio diagrams that display data, are easy to refresh, and dramatically increase your productivity. Use the wide variety of diagrams in Office Visio 2007 to understand, act on, and share information about organizational systems, resources, and processes throughout your enterprise.
Office Visio 2007 is available in two stand-alone editions: Office Visio Professional and Office Visio Standard. Office Visio Standard 2007 has the same basic functionality as Visio Professional 2007 and includes a subset of its features and templates. Office Visio Professional 2007 offers advanced functionality, such as data connectivity and visualization features, that Office Visio Standard 2007 does not.
Visualize complex information to better understand it
Office Visio 2007 provides a wide range of templates — business process flowcharts, network diagrams, workflow diagrams, database models, and software diagrams — you can use to visualize and streamline business processes, track projects and resources, chart organizations, map networks, diagram building sites, and optimize systems.
Explore information to identify trends and issues and act on them
Using Office Visio Professional 2007, make your diagrams even smarter by linking them to data to provide a more complete picture of a process, project, or system. Visually explore information to identify key trends, issues, and exceptions, and then act on them. Analyze, drill down into, and create multiple views of business data to gain insight.
Communicate using diagrams that can be shared with a broad audience
Communicate information using Visio diagrams to maximize its impact in ways words and numbers alone cannot. Then share your professional-looking Visio diagrams with others, even those who don’t have Visio.
