The Top 10 Things Intervate is Excited About, About SharePoint 2013 – Part 1


(This article will take 15 minutes to read) 
 
Microsoft SharePoint 2013 has been released to volume licence customers since November 2012 and the general release was announced in March 2013. The excitement over SharePoint 2013 has been notable.

The SharePoint 2013 release builds on the already robust and versatile SharePoint 2010 engine and the changes in this release, which I believe will have the biggest impact are ‘user experience’ features. By ‘user experience’ I refer to improvements and features that make using SharePoint easier and more intuitive and are going to be practical to the information worker and administrator alike, in terms of delivering business value by improving collaboration, improving productivity, and reducing costs. SharePoint 2013 is not only a comprehensive Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform, but also a user friendly and easy to use solution that should greatly improve user adoption within companies.

Number 6 – Mobile, mobile, mobile. Ubiquitous mobile

Mobile has been cited as one of the big bets for the last two plus years and the statistics in South Africa show that mobile smart device ownership is rapidly growing, spurring the Bring-Your-Own-Device phenomenon, as well as sharply increasing the numbers of people using their mobile to access the Internet. Mobile usage has become ubiquitous ranging from the board executives to the shop floor. SharePoint 2013 delivers significantly enhanced mobile functionality.
