Upgrade to SharePoint 2013
SharePoint Server 2013 – which is part of Office 365 – is the latest version of the program. It helps an organization to achieve new levels of reliability and performance, delivering features and capabilities that simplify administration, protect communications and information, and empower users while meeting their demands for greater business mobility.
Below you can find a list of key new features available in SharePoint 2013.
SharePoint Server 2013 provides unprecedented deployment flexibility, whether you’re looking to deploy on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid scenario. As business needs and technological advancements converge, IT professionals have a unique opportunity to take advantage of new innovations in their organizations.
Taking advantage of the latest hardware innovations
SharePoint Server 2013 has a new, fluid design that shows perfectly across all types of screens—whether with touch-enabled slates and phones, laptops, or desktops. In that way it allows the users of the latest hardware and computing technologies to take advantage of SharePoint capabilities. It is fast, intuitive, and at the same time very familiar.
New capabilities in sharing information
The new SharePoint really puts social to work. You can share ideas, discover answers and keep track of what your colleagues are working on very easily with new social features throughout SharePoint. You can also publish content to SharePoint from any Office application and share with people inside and outside your organization in a few simple clicks.
Better organization of work
With SharePoint 2013 you can organize your work better than ever before. You can e.g. organize all your projects and tasks to get visibility into upcoming deliverables across SharePoint, Outlook and Microsoft Project. You can also set up a new team site in minutes, track meeting notes and bring together all your team’s email and documents in one place. Another useful new feature is the storage and synchronization of your content in SharePoint to your desktop with SkyDrive Pro.
Improved business intelligence
Using SharePoint 2013 you can connect with people across your organization and easily discover interests, past projects and documents they’ve worked on. You can also turn raw data into interactive reports with Excel 2013 and publish to SharePoint to share insights with the people you work with. You will also appreciate the improved ability to customize and narrow your search to deliver more relevant results, and get recommendations on people and documents to follow.
Easy integration with enterprise systems
An important advantage of SharePoint 2013 is its ability to easily integrate data from multiple enterprise systems. Individuals and business units can create and deploy their own solutions and applications for collaborative processes. They also can build simple workflow tools to automate tasks specific to their unique needs and preferences without incurring the costs of custom development.
One of the most important changes in SharePoint Server 2013 has been the introduction of the SharePoint Store available in the Office 365 Marketplace. In the store every SharePoint user can browse through the Internal App Directory to find solutions that extend standard capabilities of the program, improving work efficiency and information sharing. The SharePoint apps – dedicated for a particular organization – can also be made available in private App Catalogs.
