SharePoint 2013 out-of-the-box features

Let's give thanks for some of SharePoint 2013's out-of-the-box features, some of which have made serious strides since the previous release.

While SharePoint can offer users more than just a collaboration tool or a content repository and offers several out-of-the-box features, there are still some improvements that could make the difference in terms of user adoption.

According to business intelligence and SharePoint expert Scott Robinson, there are several SharePoint 2013 out-of-the-box features that "seem like freebies if that isn't what you bought SharePoint for." Robinson takes us through some of what he considers the biggest gifts of the SharePoint 2013 platform, and a couple of Microsoft's missteps in the latest release.

The major strides in SharePoint 2013, said Robinson, "include SharePoint Online, or SharePoint in the cloud, the social computing features, which have taken a big leap forward, and the business intelligence stuff -- those all are game changers."
