Global academic community tends to show more interest in using cloud technologies for scientific data processing, which is determined by the need for quick joint access to the data.
This presentation will deal with the question of the convenient and effective cloud editing of documents as the main form of storing and exchanging the information.
ONLYOFFICE, a project by Latvian software development company Ascensio System SIA, is aimed at creating an innovative office suite for comprehensive online work with text documents, spreadsheets and presentations.
The presentation will cover the following key problems of online editing and methods of solving them using HTML5 Canvas:
- Limited editing toolset;
- Insufficient formatting quality;
- Weaknesses in compatibility with popular formats;
- Unequal display of content depending on browser or device;
- The need in complete collaborative work on documents;
- Resources for extending editing functionality.
The separate topic will be devoted to data protection methods and mechanisms realized in ONLYOFFICE web solutions.
We as well admit the importance of integrating this functionality in familiar instruments for working with documents. The final part of the presentation will touch upon integration with popular file sync&share platforms.
