Wow, here's a preview of the InfoPath 2007 client that we're busy finishing up: Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 Highlights - nice to see that the Outlook / InfoPath integration is pulled out as reason #1 to upgrade. Yeah!
And we also have information on Microsoft Office Forms Server 2007 Highlights as well.
So to heck with all that news back and forth about when Office 2007 is shipping blah blah. We're dogfooding this stuff everyday and soon the public Beta will be out.
Go ahead and pop some fab popcorn and watch the demo. It shows getting a form designed, deploying it out via email and the forms server, receiving the forms back into Outlook (where you can get a great view into your data just through Outlook columns) and then exporting those items into Excel for deeper analysis.
Woof! Now that's some great integration!
