Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could deploy server side code to your office 365 tenant? Yes, it would! And with Windows Azure Auto-Hosted apps in SharePoint 2013 it is possible! This is amazing! I feel a little bit sorry for all the competitors. With the possibility to run server side code within Office 365 there are only few reasons to run SharePoint on premise. Especially midsize companies should consider really well to migrate to Office 365.

Microsoft unveiled Office 2013, including SharePoint 2013, the newest versions of Office 365, and all other related products. It’s been a huge week in the Twittersphere and blogosphere.
There’s little that hasn’t been said already about the new products and their features. There are even blogs describing, in detail, deployment and implementation procedures. Perhaps the perspective I can provide that’s unique is to tell you what I am telling C- and D- level executives, as well as IT Pros and Devs, about what all of this means to your business and the choices you need to make.

Well, by know everybody living in the SharePoint world are sitting with their best tin foil hats on and installing, configuring and fiddling with SharePoint 2013 Preview, which was announced today by mister Steve. I’ve been fortunate to be a part of the (debated) closed beta for some time and have been trying out the new version of our favorite product. You probably will be overwhelmed with blog posts over the next couple of months, up until the SharePoint Conference 2012, and continuing after that. And I aim to be a part of the flooding (at least partly)…starting with a topic that I think is profoundly important – Authentication.

In the previous versions of SharePoint, both 2007 and 2010 had some elements of Community based working and communication? However they were not solid platforms and always felt that they were half way there to something better. Well now in SharePoint 2013 we have the new “Community Site”. Top create one simply access the “Site Contents” link and then select the link to create a new sub site and choose the community site.

‘Intangible’ is defined as ‘difficult to define or describe clearly, but nonetheless perceived’. So let me ask you a question:

“What is the most intangible set of features in SharePoint?”
It may be a hard one to call, but based on my experience, ‘social’ is definitely up there! Everyone is wrestling with how to prove the real value that most of us instinctively know exists in delivering SharePoint social feature, but how do we measure SharePoint Social ROI?

This eBook strives to answer that question and arm you with a range of insights and techniques that you can use today.

So the SharePoint 2013 (previously known as ‘SharePoint 15’, the internal name) public beta is finally here. And that means that MVPs, TAP participants and other folks with early access are no longer bound by their non-disclosure agreements and can now talk about the product publicly. No doubt there will be a flurry of blog posts, but I wanted to write up my thoughts on what has struck a chord with me in the next version – partly because I have friends and colleagues who might look to me for this information, but mainly because it helps me crystallize my thinking on some of the new aspects. This started as a “developer perspective” article, but hopefully also gives a sense of what the new version brings for everyone.
