Why do SharePoint intranets fail? What is all the buzz about SharePoint 2013? SharePoint was first launched in 2001 as a document and content management system for teams to work together. We have definitely come a long way from there! SharePoint 2013 provides a gamut of features for improved productivity amongst your end users as well as OOTB functionality for managing projects. This session illustrates adoption tactics through demonstrations of SharePoint 2013’s new productivity enhancements including gamification, social collaboration, and project management; and finally, presents how SharePoint 2013’s goal is to transform the way people work; providing the relevant information to the right people at the right time.
