SharePoint 2013 Deep Dive

Part of the rise of SharePoint is because Microsoft put all its collaboration/groupware (remember that word?) muscle behind the product (instead of dividing its attention between products like Groove and Exchange public folders).

The new software, now available to volume customers, has a new way of building apps that uses an online store for third-party distribution (thanks for the idea, Apple!). It also better synchronizes so you won't be working on an outdated version of the document. There is also better search, and through integration with Outlook, has a new approach to project/task management.

And like nearly everything Redmond does these days, there are huge social media hooks included.
