Access web apps can be created and hosted directly in a SharePoint 2013 site. The advantage of Access web apps are to share an Access based application directly with users of a SharePoint site.

In the past months I talked a lot about Document Management with SharePoint 2013. In my last session in Rosenheim there has been an interesting question. The scope of the standard Document ID provider that is shipped with SharePoint is ‘Site Collection’. In other word: to activate the Document ID you need to activate a Site Collection feature. What happens if you have two different Site Collections that use each the standard Document ID provider and you move a document (with a valid Document ID) from one Site Collection to the other?
One of the most difficult areas of delivering a SharePoint solution is identifying not just who should be targetted for User Adoption, but, going forward, how to sustain that User Adoption through communication.

I have been working A LOT with SharePoint 2013 apps since around November 2011 and AvePoint (where I work) released our first app Task & Calendar Sync to the store in June 2012 and our second called Meetings in April 2013. As the Architect and Product Manager on these apps I’ve learnt a lot about apps.
You probably know the story. A company wanted a website based on SharePoint. A company looked at standard out-of-box SharePoint. A company decided to change everything. A company payed lots of money to change everything.
I sat through a partner event in Microsoft’s Chicago offices yesterday, listening to two large customers of SharePoint and Yammer (Exelon and Aon) outline the factors for success of their deployments, and the lessons learned. It was a great event by Axceler partners Rightpoint (www.Rightpoint.com) and was hosted by one of the most recognized community leaders in the social and SharePoint combined space, Jeff Willinger (@jwillie), with a roadmap discussion by Microsoft business productivity specialist, Jason Bullock. Overall, a well-organized and compelling story on what it takes to move a company’s processes and culture toward a more social model.
