Connecting E-Mail into Microsoft SharePoint By Jacob Ukelson, chief technology officer of ActionBase Recently, we’ve focused on the concept of how organizations value the option to have follow-up, tracking and process management capabilities available with e-mail
Collaboration across borders is fundamental to business success, and many Fortune 500 companies appear to agree, as Microsoft reports that 70% of such companies use Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies for collaboration, business intelligence, and social computing
So you have a very good and well established SharePoint application and all is going well but it is now 2013 and Microsoft have done again; they have gone out and release yet another version of Microsoft SharePoint which is SharePoint 2013
Reality is, SharePoint 2010 hasn’t been out all that long and outside of Microsoft’s promotional customer examples we were fortunate enough to see at the keynote, it appears very few (who aren’t receiving direct help from Microsoft) are going live with 2010 yet
When SharePoint began to emerge as the intranet platform of choice, Microsoft touted it as a self-service solution
While Microsoft focuses on ensuring core collaboration, document management and social capabilities are built into the platform, it depends on partners and other third party application developers to build applications that enhance these basics with richer functionality
This actually makes a lot of sense for Microsoft to do this as everything had become an "App" in true technical conversations. When speaking with the business side of a SharePoint 2013 or Office 365 Hybrid initiative (and even in Azure) you would have to detail what exactly an "App" was and with those users in organization's with previous experience in either SharePoint 2007 or SharePoint 2010 and Web Parts, with the ability to add an "App Part" to a Site site definitely can get confusing for end users and Power users alike
I have also included supportable limitations outlined by Microsoft as well as best practice information that pertains to SharePoint Server 2010
Can we run user profile full sync and db full backup simultaneously in SharePoint 2010?
As part of our research and our ongoing consulting efforts at EPC Group in relation to Microsoft SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 , we were able to take a tour of an Office 365 data center/facility and hear firsthand from Microsoft some of the steps they are taking to help customers feel at ease about their data
Due to some release information restrictions I will use a lot of information verbatim that Microsoft released publically yesterday but it is key to go with a Hybrid SharePoint Deployment methodology in your current SharePoint 2010 deployment to adapt properly to a future upgrade of SharePoint 2013
However this is also good news for the SharePoint 2010 folks. I did several tests of importing 2010 taxonomies into 2013 and it worked like a charm!
