I wrote several posts to this blog on the topics included in Yaroslav’s tutorial set. I’m revisiting the topic with this post to illustrate how organizations with a serious commitment to SharePoint 2013 may want to include an active App development effort as a powerful feature driving end user adoption for the SharePoint 2013 computing platform.
The browser serves not only as the universal client for desktop computing, but also for tablets and even smart phones. So once a system conforming to the SharePoint 2013 App Model has been created, the additional effort required to expose the system for consumption by tablet users, or mobile workers via smart phones is relatively insignificant.
The plus side of all of this effort, from the perspective of SharePoint adoption, is to increase the “stickiness” of SharePoint 2013. Once computing systems can be implemented in the office, or on the road, or even at a home office, personnel will be more likely to embrace new computing methods for SharePoint 2013. Once they start to consume the new processes, they will be far less likely to abandon them.
