Taking a Deeper Look at New Changes in the SharePoint Platform

By Martin Schaeferle


Recently, we talked about the new changes to Microsoft SharePoint and how that's creating demand for experts in this wildly popular platform. Today we'd like to briefly look at some of these changes, many of which have been summarized by Mark Kashman, a SharePoint senior product manager, here.(In fact, for those looking for SharePoint related work, the aforementioned article is a must-read. That and our SharePoint tutorial, of course.)

OK, so about those changes.For starters, SharePoint will be integrated with Yammer, a social media application. The user interface, meanwhile, will include touch capabilities and asynchronous calls. Subscribers can share documents and files to users both inside and outside their company with a new "Guest Link" feature. And new "on-hover" feature lets users view contact information or a document preview for a document search.

This is all, of course, the tip of the iceberg. And it's precisely because of that - new capabilities, new functionality, new complexity - that companies all over will be looking for SharePoint ninjas.7f6b1efb-94c0-4c58-b924-1d9cf41c59dc
