Structure SharePoint Capabilities to Provide Users with a Platform they can Adopt

SharePoint, one can argue, falls into the category of a feature-rich office automation computing platform. Perhaps feature-rich is an understatement when one considers the panoramic range of functionality SharePoint is capable of supporting. But this expansive range of capabilities can, and often does run counter to stakeholder efforts to hasten user adoption, and with good reason.

Here are merely a couple of reasons why workflows possess this unique characteristic: Workflows can be put together by anyone capable of following a set of procedures.

No-Code Solutions are an Important, Value-Packed Reason to Implement SharePoint

Bolt-on systems development, otherwise known as “no-code” solutions, are an important reason to implement SharePoint. Perhaps no other method of application development offers as rich an opportunity for Line of Business (LoB) users to participate, directly, in the development of computing solutions to satisfy their unique needs. SharePoint 2007, 2010, 2013, and Online can all support the development and the implementation of these solutions. On February 20, 2014, Asif Rehmani and Mark Gillis of Microsoft will offer a free no-code solutions webinar. Let’s take a moment to look further at why it’s important for LoBs to play a role, whenever…

Introduction to SharePoint Designer 2013 for SharePoint Online Office 365

Office 365 E3 plan accounts include a paid subscription to Microsoft Office 2013, Pro. SharePoint Designer 2013, InfoPath 2013, and InfoPath Filler 2013 are all included in this set.
