Except Microsoft, there is not anybody that can say how SharePoint 2013 will appear, what’ll be its function. Even it isn’t also known to anybody where Microsoft will be taking it in the coming 2013. However, it can’t stop the rising speculations that are irking my mind. So, let’s get to learn this article what are the three biggest lessons that SharePoint 2013 may be learning from its rival products.
1. Better integration with external (social) platforms
SharePoint 2010 allows pulling in data from the external systems, utilizing a variety of practices, while SP2013 has to get a lead from social networking sites like Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter as well as helps it talk to additional platforms. Twitter, leading the way in this direction, and gets incorporated into a range of apps & sites. Facebook, on the other hand, has been making a lot of efforts and succeeding considerably, with a view to making itself the defacto authentication way on the web.
2. Dropbox style document management
SharePoint 2010, being central strength of the product, is a very excellent document management system. Having docs into SharePoint plays an essential role to help it succeed as a DMS. Mapped drives simplify it; however it always remains a big deal to shake-up.
SharePoint 2013 ought to come integrated with Dropbox style applications for an entire range of platforms such as Android, iOS, Windows, Mac etc. Each application gets installed on the proper platform and gets connected to a SharePoint execution. A user has to opt for the related sites and document libraries. All these are developed like folders on their file system. Any dropped in doc in the folder automatically gets synchronized to the related library in SharePoint. So the files that are offline and available across different devices, are easily added in the first place.
3. Better email integration
SharePoint is touted to be the centre of digital working and SharePoint 2013 has to do something like Outlook and Exchange. A degree of integration is already available here; however it doesn’t go too far. Why should a version of Outlook webmail be built directly into SharePoint 2013? Let me manage and deal with my email as though it were an extension of SharePoint itself.
