  • Note: You can use it as a secure place to store, organize, share, and access information from almost any device. All you need is a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox.
  • SharePoint can be used to provide intranet portals, document & file management, collaboration, social networks, extranets, websites, enterprise search, and business intelligence. 
  • Intranet: This has organizational benefits such as increased employee engagement, centralizing process management, reducing new staff on-boarding costs, and providing the means to capture and share knowledge (e.g. via tools such as wikis/blogs)ECM:SharePoint also provides the benefit of a central location for storing and collaborating on documents, which can significantly reduce emails and duplicated work in an organization.

  • SharePoint is the place to share ideas, content and the vision of your company. It’s scalable enough to organize and manage all your information assets but it’s also designed to organize and store documents to enable personal productivity, keep teams’ in sync, and projects on track. It’s where you go to discover experts, share knowledge and uncover connections to information and people. It’s a hub for developers to build and deploy modern apps and for designers to build eye-catching websites. And because it’s built in the cloud in mind, IT Pros can manage cost, and meet the demands of compliance to manage risk. Finally, SharePoint 2013 has been built to handle almost anything our customers can throw at it so IT Pros can spend more time managing information, delivering innovation and manage their time effectively.

  • With SharePoint 2013 organizations can deliver engaging, adaptive and cross-channel customer experiences to drive online business success.The first step of creating an engaging experience is getting the design right. In this release we made sure that designers areNOT tied down to the restrictions of the tools and standards they have to use, instead they can focus their energy on creating beautiful and rich sites usingthe design tools(Such as Adobe Dreamweaver, Microsoft Expression Web, or any other HTML editor) and standards(HTML5, CSS, JS) they are familiar with.Also in this release, we have significantlyminimized the SharePoint knowledge needed to successfully design and brand a SharePoint site with the new simplified markups, style sheets and the snippet gallery. For instance the snippet gallery allows designers to easily add SharePoint functionality to their sites without requiring them to be a SharePoint developer or expert.In previous versions of SharePoint, branding a site required specific technical expertise about things like what content placeholders are required on a master page, or how a master page implements certain classes of styles and SharePoint components…SharePoint 2013 introduces the Design Manager – a new interface and central hub for managing all aspects of branding your SharePoint site.The Design Manager enables a step-by-step approach for creating, importing design assets that you can use to brand your site. Upload design assets—images, HTML, CSS, and so on—and then create your master pages and page layouts. You can preview how your design looks either with-inyour design tool or on the page itself as you are designing it.As you only need to work with HTML,the Design Manager enables you to design great looking sites without requiring deep SharePoint expertise.Most companies todaystruggle engaging with the growing mobile audience. A site carefully crafted and designed for a desktopbrowser usually does not lead to the same experience on a smaller device. Engaging a mobile audience is more then simply ensuring that your content is readable on a small mobile device or a tablet.When users visit your site with mobile devices, with many distractions surrounding them it is important to make the most of that limited windowof opportunity. This requires more then just optimizing the content and layout for a small screen, but tailoring and delivering a whole newengaging experience that complements each devices unique characteristics. In this release with Device Channels designers can create channels that allow a single published site to be rendered in multiple devices in different tailored designs and layouts.Tailoring the experiences for any device works well if you can also tailor the content. With the new media asset management capabilities, it isnow much easier to handle image and video content. For example you can select a thumbnail used for a video just through the browser,display YouTube videos and manage multiple renditions of digital assets such as images.Creating an engaging user experience is only possible if your users can discover content and navigate on your site intuitively.The new Managed Navigation in SharePoint 2013 allows you to drivethe navigation elements on your site by using the term tagged with-in your content.This not only means that managing your site navigation is much easier now using the term store, but also because the same termstore is used for tagging content by your authors/editors, it will ensure that the user experience is consistent and adapts over time as your content also changes.In SharePoint 2013 as users navigate through your site and explore different categories, the experience will be adapt to that new context.In the example above, for Contoso News Video category we surfaced “Duration” refiner for videos, while for Contoso Electronics we provided a “Screen Size”refiner for “Laptops Category”. Managed navigation also provides the ability to create dynamic topics/category pages while minimizing the amount ofphysical pages needed. This is another example on how content and navigation should come together to provide a engaging and contextaware experience while ensuring content is re-used as much as possible.
  • Social isn’t just about a features, it’s about the ability for users to stay up-to-date with information that they care about, helping people to get to know each other, and sharing information that’s important. Just getting this right would save a huge number of unneeded duplicate interactions and allow people to spend time getting their work done.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, an ‘everyone’ or company feed that is used to share information with everyone at the company, and individual site feeds. It’s possible to post straight to another feed, such as a site feed or company feed, straight from your microblog.Following in SharePoint 2013 includes not only people, but documents, sites and tags. Trending tags displayed based on social analytics designed to help everyone in the organization keep a close eye on what everyone in the organization is talking about at any one time.When we think about communication and collaboration, we don’t want to limit where, or when someone can collaborate. With SharePoint 2013, we are bringingthe breadth of our experiences to all devices, and to all places. We’ll be delivering mobile applications, with a great mobile browsing experience for other platforms. Working from anywhere goes beyond SharePoint with native applications for OneNote and Lync on your favorite device.
  • Speaker NotesOrganizations have large amounts of information spread across repositories and in people’s heads; the question is how organizations can make it easier to share knowledge – from questions and answers in communities, to finding information spread throughout silos in the organization, to determining who can help with a particular problem.In SharePoint 2013 we’re introducing an entirely new feature called ‘community sites’. You can think about it like a discussion forum, where you can get your questions answered and find people that would be relevant to your work. It’s really important to note that the impact that the ‘open by default‘ model that community sites follows has on an organization – this is a free place for people to communicate, ask questions and get answers; what makes this especially powerful is that also acts as a place for tacit knowledge to collect and when combined with the powerful search capabilities in SharePoint ensures that it’s discoverable even by those who aren’t members.In this screenshot we’re showing the Communities Portal site that will allow users to find and discover communities including those that have been featured, newly created, or recommended specifically for you. The goal for the portal is to make communities highly discoverable that will further the number of discussions, and the quality of the questions and answers.In this screen you can see that I can navigated into a community and I’m shown a list of recent discussions; this helps me understand what people are talking about right now, and allows me to interact with the community, or with a single click create a new discussion. Statistics like # of new members, views, or posts, as well as who the top contributors are great to get a sense of what topics are active or who is participating. Communities are designed to not just facilitate conversation, but reward people who contribute and ensure they’re visible. These types of rewards are crucial to ensure that people remain active and engaged.You can see threaded discussing with commenting, reply's, posts, and you see from this discussion, other people you might be interested in engaging with. Most importantly is the ‘best answer’ capability that allows community moderator or thread owner to select the best possible answer to the posted question – this is then made directly searchable with search so that when someone is looking for an answer to a question, they get it instantly through search.
  • Speaker NotesAutomatic Mobile Browser RedirectionTo access a site using the optimized mobile browser experience, a new feature called Automatic Mobile Browser Redirection must be activated on the site. When activated and a mobile browser is accessing the site, this feature checks the mobile browser to determine if it is capable of handling HTML5 or not. If the mobile browser supports HTML5, the contemporary view is rendered, else the classic view is rendered. This feature is activated by default when any of the following site templates are used: Collaboration templates: Team Site, Blank Site, Document Workspace, Blog, Group Work Site, Visio Process Repository Meetings templates: Basic Meeting Workspace, Blank Meeting Workspace, Decision Meeting Workspace, Social Meeting Workspace, Multipage Meeting Workspace Enterprise templates: Document Center, Records Center, Business Intelligence Center, My Site Host, Basic Search Center, FAST Search Center All other site templates require you to explicitly activate the feature. Office Mobile Web AppsIn SharePoint Server 2010, Office Web Apps provides browser-based companions to Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. When Office Web Apps is installed on SharePoint Server 2010, Office Mobile Web Apps is also installed on the server. Office Mobile Web Apps enables users to open documents in the mobile web application using a mobile browser. With SharePoint Server 15, Office Web Apps is no longer a companion product installed on a SharePoint Server. Instead, Office Web Apps Server is a new stand-alone server product that delivers Office Web Apps functionality on your private network. Although these are now separate products, Office Web Apps Server continues to enable Office Mobile Web Apps, making them available to mobile users who access SharePoint sites. Together, SharePoint Server 15 and Office Mobile Web Apps offer a better user experience when interacting with documents on a mobile device. For instance, when both products are used together, a user opens a server-based version of the document in the mobile browser. Without Office Mobile Web Apps, the end user would first have to download the file and then open it in Office Mobile or an office document viewer. Push NotificationsSharePoint Server 15 supports applications on mobile devices (such as smartphones, tablets, and so on) that should receive notifications from a SharePoint site. Notifications can include events that happen in the site, such as when a user adds an item to a list or updates an item. For mobile devices to receive such notifications, device applications must register with a SharePoint site. Once the device is registered, you can write event handler code to interact with Microsoft Push Notification Service or notification services of other mobile device platforms. Notifications are sent from the server where the application is hosted to the registered mobile device application.
  • Speaker NotesPersonalized search results based on your search history: Make re-finding information easier than ever by promoting content that you’ve searched for in the past; making Search about more than finding documents, but as an aid to navigation.Rich contextual previews with meaningful actions:  Finding the right document is made simpler by providing a variety of previewing capabilities to ensure you’ve got the right document, combined with contextual actions to continue your journey and complete your task.Intelligent and customized search results experience: SharePoint “15” enhances results relevance out-of-box with an ability to alter the layout and ranking based on what you’re looking for, and what you’ve found; taking relevance to a new level and giving administrators powerful tools for improving the Search Experience.
  • Speaker NotesExcel BIExcel BI provides the capabilities to analyze and visually explore data of any size, and to integrate and show interactive solutions. In SharePoint Server 15, Excel BI offers certain new features to support business intelligence applications. These include the following: In Memory BI Engine (IMBI): The In Memory multidimensional data analysis engine (IMBI), also known as the Vertipaq engine, allows for almost instant analysis of millions of rows and is a fully integrated feature in the Excel client. Power View Add-in for Excel: Power View (Crescent) is powered by the BI Semantic Model and the VertiPaq engine, and enables users to visualize and interact with modeled data by using highly interactive visualizations, animations and smart querying. Users will be able to present and share insights with others in the organization through rich storyboard presentation capabilities. Decoupled PivotChart and PivotTable reports: Users can now create PivotChart reports without having to include a PivotTable report on the same page. Trend analysis: Excel Services supports the ability to conduct trend analysis from cells in PivotTable reports that use OLAP data, such as Analysis Services cubes or PowerPivot data models. Excel ServicesExcel Services enables people to view and interact with Excel workbooks that have been published to SharePoint sites. Users are able to explore data and conduct analysis in a browser window just as they would by using the Excel client. In SharePoint Server 15, Excel Services offers certain new features to support business intelligence applications. These include the following:Data exploration improvements: People can more easily explore data and conduct analysis in Excel Services reports that use SQL Server Analysis Services data or PowerPivot data models. For example, users can point to a value in a PivotChart or PivotTable report and see suggested ways to view additional information. Users can also use commands such as Drill Down To to conduct analysis. Users can also apply the Drill Down command by using a single mouse click. Field list and field well support: Excel Services enables people to easily view and change which items are displayed in rows, columns, values, and filters in PivotChart reports and PivotTable reports that have been published to Excel Services. Calculated measures and members: Excel Services supports calculated measures and calculated members that are created in Excel. Enhanced timeline controls: Excel Services supports timeline controls that render and behave as they do in the Excel client. Application BI Servers: Administrators can specify SQL Server Analysis Services servers to support more advanced analytic capabilities in Excel Services. Business Intelligence Center update: The Business Intelligence Center site template has been streamlined. It not only has a new look, it is easier to use.
  • Speaker NotesPerformancePoint ServicesPerformancePoint Services enables users to create interactive dashboards that display key performance indicators (KPIs) and data visualizations in the form of scorecards, reports, and filters. In SharePoint Server 15, PerformancePoint Services offers certain new features to support business intelligence applications. These include the following: Dashboard Migration: Users will be able to copy entire dashboards and dependencies, including the .aspx file, to other users, servers, or site collections. This feature also allows the ability to migrate single items to other environments and migrate content by using Windows PowerShell commands. Filter Enhancements & Filter Search: The UI has been enhanced to allow users to easily view and manage filters including giving users the ability to search for items within filters without having to navigate through the tree. BI Center Update: The new BI Center is cleaner, and easier to use with folders and libraries configured for easy use. Support for Analysis Services Effective User: This new feature eliminates the need for Kerberos delegation when per-user authentication is used for Analysis Services data sources. By supporting Analysis Services Effective User feature, authorization checks will be based on the user specified by the EffectiveUserName property instead of using the currently authenticated user. PerformancePoint Support on iPad: PerformancePoint dashboards can now be viewed and interacted with on iPad devices using the Safari web browser. Visio ServicesVisio Services is a service application that lets users share and view Microsoft Visio® Drawing (*.vsdx) and Visio 2010 Web drawing (*.vdw) files. The service also enables data-connected Visio Drawing (*.vsdx) and Visio 2010 Web drawing (*.vdw) be refreshed and updated from various data sources.In SharePoint Server 15, new features in Visio Services include the following: Maximum Cache Size: A new service parameter, it is located on the Central Admininstration Visio Graphics Service Application Global Settings page. The default value is 5120 MB. Health Analyzer rules: New corresponding Health Analyzer rules have been added to reflect the new Maximum Cache Size parameter. Updated PowerShell cmdlet “Set-SPVisioPerformance”: This cmdlet has been updated to include the new Maximum Cache Size parameter. Commenting on drawings supported: Users can add meaningful comments to a Visio Drawing (*.vsdx) collaboratively on the web via Visio Services in full page rendering mode.
  • We have all of these products and platforms such as Office, SharePoint and even Windows 8, Windows Phone, Dynamics CRM and AX. They provide a lot of great features and functionality that keep us productive in not only our business life but our personal lives as well.On the web, there is all of these services and data that are available to us. Financial data,WikiPedia, Zillow, SQL data, Bing Search and Maps. Even SharePoint, Dynamics CRM and Dynamics AX can providers data for us.The challenge is how do we integrate all of these rich services and data providers so we can be even more productive. How do we integrate them so they are seamless within our productivity products and platforms.I’ll tell you….AppsApps enable SharePoint 2013 users to extend the capabilities of SharePoint 2013 to address specific business needs by allowing users to connect to data and services both from within an organization as well as in the public cloud. Now we have had WebParts and the like for SharePoint for some time and we can provide similar experiences creating full-trust and sandbox solutions. The issue is that these apps are tightly integrated with the platform and require some amount of touch to insure as technology advances that our customizations can advance with it. This is were apps differ, apps are loosely coupled and not dependent on the SharePoint as a platform, but dependent on SharePoint as a service. Apps execute “off-server”, hence they don’t actually run on the SharePoint box but instead are hosted in their own hosting environment which could be the browser, a Window Azure service, ASP.NET or even a non-Microsoft web hosting platform such as Linux or Amazon Web Services.Now there is more, custom solutions have always been hard to discover and install. Since apps are loosely coupled upgrading apps can be done independently from SharePoint since they don’t depend on the SharePoint platform. But what about discovering apps. How do I find them? Well…Apps can be selected from the new SharePoint store or the app catalog making it a simple click and run experience for the user.
