SharePoint 2013: Speculation and Musings

March 7, 2012

With SharePoint 2013’s hotly anticipated release, Bjorn Furuknap weighs in, speculating on the various features that will be made available.  His blog entry, “SharePoint Server 2013 Features,” provides details on some rumored 2013 additions.

SharePoint Server 2013 keeps many of the existing SharePoint 2010 features, such as: Excel Services, Access Services, InfoPath Forms Services, User Profile Service, Search Services, Business Connectivity Services, and PerformancePoint Services.  In addition, however, there are new, or at least radically expanded services, such as: Content Management Service, Translation Services, Workflow Services, SharePoint Quiz Client-Side Object Model Protocol, Education Services, and Work Management Service.

While every edition of SharePoint gets better, increasing ease-of-use and efficiency, it sometimes seems that SharePoint is simply keeping up with third-party solutions that are much more agile and current in terms of new releases.  One particular solution that does a great job of staying current with its suite of solutions is Fabasoft Mindbreeze.

With Fabasoft Mindbreeze, updates are not a belabored three-year overhaul, but an efficient revamp every quarter.  Felt needs are met quickly and efficiently.  Read more about actionable information, one of the latest additions to Fabasoft Mindbreeze Enterprise Winter Release 2012:

With most search engines you can search and find. With Fabasoft Mindbreeze Enterprise you don’t just find, you can instantly use the information without any intermediate step. The search query delivers an e-mail address, for example – click on this address directly within the preview to write an e-mail to the selected addressee.

So while SharePoint 2013 is greatly anticipated, consider if it is worth the wait or if the addition of a third-party solution can meet your organization’s information needs.

    Interesting Bjorns insights and detail of information and from my own research and discussions with Microsoft exclusive partners who have already trailed sp2013, I would agree to most of your comments. However I don’t think the release will be as exciting as sp2010 since it was dramatically improved over moss2007.
