7 things about SharePoint 2013 all IT pros should know

Jonathan Hassell | Feb. 13, 2013
Microsoft SharePoint 2013 builds upon previous releases in 2007 and 2010.

While this article has focused primarily on the SharePoint Server product, Microsoft has said publicly that it will continue to produce and, perhaps more importantly, support both on-premises and cloud versions of SharePoint for the foreseeable future. The challenge remains deciding the right option for your business. If the answer turns out to be a hybrid of both on-premises and cloud deployment, the further challenge is the ongoing question of managing both. How do you keep them up to date? How do you ensure a great user experience no matter where the data is located?

SharePoint has become a staple for many organizations worldwide. Any time there is an update to such a core technology, there is a healthy amount of skepticism and care required. SharePoint 2013 brings some useful enhancements to the table-including some that have the power to transform the level of understanding you have about your business-but it is always important to understand the complications and obstacles that go along with a new edition.
