Yesterday, we hosted a SharePoint 2013 webinar that covered the new search and social features. Will Tseng, a senior technical consultant within Perficient’s SharePoint practice, and Rich Wood, director of Perficient’s national SharePoint practice, teamed up to talk about two of their favorite topics.
In the first half of the webinar, Will discussed key components of designing and delivering optimal search experiences, and explained how to use SharePoint 2013 search to enhance knowledge sharing. He started by giving a brief search history lesson, and then a SharePoint 2013 search overview.
So how exactly do you create a great search experience? Will gave attendees a few guidelines:
- Find it fast.
- Make it relevant.
- Make it yours.
To transition to the social side of SharePoint, Will handed it over to Rich, who delved into a topic he is quite passionate about. Rich first took a look at SharePoint 2013’s out-of-the-box social capabilities, and then explained how Yammer fits into the equation – including what’s now available in SharePoint 2013, and what’s coming soon. Next, Rich touched on Newsgator, and discussed the importance of social in transforming corporate communications. He wrapped up with a quick talk on Microsoft’s roadmap.
