Microsoft has been testing a collaborative data tool called CollabDB for the past two years. Fast forward to today and not even a peep about the effort — until now. New details have surfaced online which reveal fresh information about the service and how the tool has taken form.

Twitter user WalkingCat first leaked the details about Project Osaka. The tool now has a preview page set up by Microsoft and was formerly known as CollabDB. You can view the preview page right now, though you might not be able to sign in without an authenticated account.

By clicking the Get Started button, you will be able to see the login page provided you have a credential. However, for many users, the login page may not give them permission.

Project Osaka lets you organize data in a smart way and connects to the Office 365 suite of services. You will be able to collaborate in real time with colleagues using interactive tools available from Project Osaka. The tool will be available only to Office 365 Enterprise users. The service could be Microsoft’s contender to Google Sheets, a popular collaborative tool that helps you manage data in real time.

This is not the first time, though, that the software giant expands its Office 365 services to take on rivals in the cloud productivity niche. Most recently, Microsoft launched StaffHub for Office 365, a new tool that lets you manage schedules and workloads.

All of these services form part of Microsoft’s effort to develop new tools that will help consumers improve their productivity.
