  • We’re introducing an array of new social features let you share what you’re working on, ask questions and keep track of what your colleagues are doingwith contextual updates delivered to your activity feed.The heart of the social experience in SharePoint 2013 is the newsfeed – it’s a summary of all your social interactions from your microblogs and community conversations, to the sites, content, and people you follow.The newsfeed gives people the ability to post, to reply to others comments, to like. If you’re following a hashtag, or someone posts a comment on a community of site all of this activity will appear on your newsfeed. The newsfeed can also be filtered to show information targeted directly at you, including @mentions, to help you quickly get involved in the conversation.There are multiple feeds as part of the social experience, your personal newsfeed, a company feed that is used to share information with everyone and individual site feeds. Following in SharePoint 2013 includes not only people, but documents, sites and tags and you can even show trending tags based on social analytics designed to help everyone in the organization keep a close eye on what’s happening across your organization and stay connected from virtually anywhere.
  • We’ve really focused on making sharing simple in this release. You can drag and drop content directly into your document libraries and by hovering over a document you can see live document preview and at a glance see who you’re sharing with and when the document was last edited. Without leaving the library you can edit your documents using Office Web Apps, and in one click share it with a colleague. We’re taking document sharing and storage one step further with the introduction of SkyDrive Pro.
  • We’ve introduced a new feature that’s available in both SharePoint and Outlook so you can bring together all your team’s email and documents in one place. So if a colleague updates a client proposal or sends an email to the team on new product pricing you see the changes instantly and your team’s always in sync. Often teams cross company boundaries. You could be working with an external partner or customer.Site mailboxes are a key part of your ECM Social Interaction
  • Sharing documents is easier than ever before. You can provide external partners and vendors secure access to SharePoint sites or documents without violating the data governance and protection policies set by IT. You can enforce sign-in and set permissions at the document or site level to ensure you can work together with anyone securely.
  • The first thing you’ll notice about team sites is that we’ve built an intuitive wizard right that guides you through setting permissions, inviting people, creating lists and libraries and adding a custom theme to your site. Through tight integration with OneNote we’re also introducing team notebooks with this release to help you capture and track team meeting notes but the integration with Office doesn’t stop there.
  • We’re introducing a new lightweight task management feature in SharePoint to help coordinate tasks across the entire team. Sites make it so easy for teams to work together, sharing content, organizing tasks, editing lists and it’s designed to work with Microsoft Project so it’s easy to aggregate all your project tasks across the team or the entire organization giving project managers broad visibility into the priorities and initiatives people are working on.
  • This is tightly integrated with your own personal tasks so at a glance you can see the tasks you need to accomplish. Your tasks are also aggregating tasks from Outlook, Project and SharePoint and publishing them to your timeline view and because we’re providing a connected experience the tasks that appear here will also appear in Outlook so no matter where you are, you can manage your to do list and get home on time.
  • Image RenderingThumbnails on created on fly and cached for following requestsResizing will resize actual image, not only it's presentationOptimizes page payloadVideo ImprovementsEmbedding to any content pageThumbnail generationRenditions also for videosExternal video support to store Multiple encodings for single videoFallback to Silverlight
  • Document Set BasicsCreate documents directly in SPTag w/Office backstageProperty Management for whole Document Set Multiple Content Types in a single Document Set Individual Properties on each DocumentNEW  Bulk meta-data editing!
  • Key Records Center FeaturesMulti-stage retention policiesHierarchical file plansSubmission by Content TypeAlternate Content TypesProperty-based routingAuto-provisioning of folders based on property valuesAuto-generated KM portals that treat IP as “products” on Topic pages (more on Topic pages later…)More notes:SharePoint continues to deliver robust records management capabilities. SharePoint provides the framework for a records management system that:Helps protect an organization legally.Demonstrates compliance with regulatory standards.Increases efficiency by promoting the disposition of out-of-date items.Records Center is the hub from which you can submit or find important documents that should be stored for long term archival. Submitted records are automatically placed in the correct library and folder based on the properties you fill out. Records managers can configure the routing table to direct incoming files to specific locations. The site also lets you manage whether records can be deleted or modified after they are added to the repository.Record managers can also specify retention schedules for content types (and libraries/folders) to ensure compliance with corporate and regulatory governance requirements.Instead of moving documents to a specific Records Center, you can also declare documents as a record and will be handled as a record in the site it was created as an in-place record. After the document is declared as a record, it can have policies and restrictions different than when it was a document. The policies are added to either the Content Type or directly on the document library.Documents can be declared as records either manually or automatically.
  • SharePoint 2013 helps you find answers to questions and discover experts you never knew existed. Following is a huge part of increasing adoption of social and with SharePoint it’s really easy to follow a person, site, hashtag or even document.It’s a great way to stay on top of the work that you’re interested inwithout having to send emails every day to someone asking for progress. SharePointalso makes recommendations on who or what you should be following. It’s never been easier to expand your social network.
  • The term “search experience” is important, because not all search results are the same and not all searches should do the same thing.SharePoint gives provides get great search results, but also provides the ability to do specific tasks such as finding expertise, people.But it’s more than finding names, it’s finding “experts”… It’s content based, not profile based; this means that we are able to find what people know based on what they actually authored and published. A combination of technology from MSFT Research and FAST allows us to do just that andeven understand names that are written in other languages, and match them to their native form(example: Name written in Russian Cyrillic can be typed as it sounds in English and will still return the correct person)You’ll also notice on the right side the people hover card, which enables users to quickly inspect and find what they are looking for. The hover card experiencechanges based on content type, in this case for people/expertise we can easily see Past projects, Interests and more importantly the documents theyhave worked on relevant to the topic “Green Thermal” (query). The relevant “worked on “documents and actions also allows for a natural and intuitive experience, when the goal is not just finding a result but getting a task done.
  • SharePoint 2013’s new unified search platform takes information discovery to the next level. It’s an intelligent search engine and as a result is always improving, always looking for ways to improve the relevance of search results; The search engine can look beyond the query and understood the meaning and can be integrated with your own business applications to help you discover results and get answers.
  • New FeaturesData exploration improvements with additional commandsBetter integration with SQL Server Analyses Services data or PowerPivot modelsField list and field well support added to excel services for easier PivotChart and PivotTable controlCalculated measures and members supported in web renderingEnhanced timeline controls for renderingApplication BI Servers supportBusiness Intelligence Center updateTouch and Device SupportExcel Services in SharePoint allows users to directly save their workbooks and publish their reports to a SharePoint site, which will render the workbooks in the browser. This feature now supports a higher level of parity between the browser and the Excel client with features like the field well and quick explore, as well as utilizing the full features of SharePoint such as collaborative editing.Excel has traditionally offered a number of basic data cleansing capabilities, but with Excel 2013 we have added some clever tools to enhance this experience. With the new Flash Fill feature, Excel will intelligently find the patterns of my data and suggest to fill the remaining cells. The Quick Analysis feature allows users to preview different conditional formatting, or instantly identify duplicate or unique values, as well as add recommended charts according to my data.Pivot Tables and Charts are now de-coupled, so it is possible to create separate charts without having to create a table beforehand. There is also a new slicer called the Timeline, which automatically detects the time dimension in your data, and helps filter the data accordingly. It is now easy to use pure drill down and drill through capabilities with the Quick Explore feature. It grants the ability to quickly create trend charts to display data over time.Power View Native feature in ExcelPerform interactive data explorationShare reports with your colleaguesSurface KPIs on dashboardsBrowser basedData exploration, visualization, and presentation experience Aimed at users of all levelsAnother major addition to Microsoft’s Self-Service BI platform is Power View in Excel and SharePoint. Power View is a highly interactive, browser-based data exploration, visualization, and presentation experience for users of all levels—from business executives to information workers. First introduced with SQL Server 2012, Power View now empowers anyone to visually explore data, easily create interactive visualizations, and effortlessly present and share reports—all within the familiarity of Excel and SharePoint. Self-Service BI needs to go beyond individual insight. It should empower users to work together to share insights and develop them collectively. With SharePoint, all of these powerful Self-Service BI capabilities are seamlessly extended into a collaborative BI platform for sharing of insights and working together to develop insights even further. SharePoint enables collaborative browser-based data exploration, visualization, and presentation experiences. For example, executives and business users can monitor and discuss information through collaborative BI Dashboards, enabling them to make better decisions using scorecards and social features. Power View as standalone version in SharePoint was an exciting introduction to the world of visualizations, but now that is has been embedded as a native feature in Excel, the opportunities are limitless. This feature allows users to create interactive reports with intuitive charts, grids and filters to help define insights and share with others.PowerPivotNative Modeling in ExcelSelf-Service BIAnalyze large data setsObserve trendsThe popularPowerPivot feature is now thedata modeling engine native in Excel, so it is no longer necessary to download the separate the add-in, as it can now be simply activated in the add-in menu. Excel continues to enhance its support for connecting to various data sources. Userscan connect to traditional data sources such as various databases on premise as well as in the cloud, as well as various data feeds and flat files. PowerPivot pioneered the self-service BI concept, by allowing Excel to hold more than millions of rows of data in a compressed analytical format for high performance calculations within memory. It is now being used to create complex relationships and hierarchies to design your data model according to your business. For example, userscan create custom measures using DAX formulas directly in Excel as well as add custom aggregations as well as KPIs to the data model. There was always the ability to define KPIs in the server for global use, but we’ve added the ability to add user based KPIs in the reports as well.
