If SharePoint existed in your organization ten years, chances are it excelled mostly at aggravating users. These were the early days of the “company intranet” and it didn’t often seamlessly fit into established workflows. Well, times have changed! SharePoint 2013 is more social, more usable and more mobile-friendly than ever before. Here are some of the highlights of the new version:
- An improved mobile experience, with several options for iOS, Windows and Android devices. Internal developers even have the option of delivering a totally customized experience for specific devices.
- With Microsoft’s acquisition of Yammer, the social aspect of SharePoint is one of its strongest features. The News Feed is similar in design to the layout of the Facebook News Feed, making it intuitive for many users.
- SharePoint 2013 makes publishing for both internal and external sites easier than ever. Managing multiple sites and more design options allow for a robust publishing experience.
