Eliminate Compromise Between Manageability and Capability
SharePoint offers an integrated solution that can tackle the most challenging enterprise search requirements while maintaining the out-of-box simplicity and consistency of a durable and secure platform.

SharePoint Insights: Make Informed Business Decisions

Empower users to discover the right people and expertise to make better informed and more agile business decisions.
Empower Decision Makers

SharePoint 2013 Content: Manage Content Lifecycle From Creation to Disposition

SharePoint Content expertly balances user experience with policy and process, ensuring that everyone participates and all content is managed.
Increase Productivity and Information Value
With SharePoint 2013, content management is simple and intuitive, allowing employees to focus on higher value tasks. In addition, SharePoint 2013 provides co-authoring, metadata driven navigation, search refiners, and a rich social overlay to help people turn information into action.
Drive Compliance and Reduce Risk

By consistently applying metadata, retention schedules, record declarations, and legal holds, SharePoint 2013 can help to ensure that information is managed in accordance with policy and regulation. This can reduce the risk of incorrectly deleting relevant information or retaining information beyond its useful life.
Consolidate Systems and Simplify Integration
Reducing the need to purchase multiple ECM solutions, SharePoint 2013 delivers the management of documents, records, Web content, rich media, and document output in an integrated, extensible platform. In addition, SharePoint 2013 is built on an open platform that supports interoperability standards like XML, SOAP, RSS, REST, WebDAV, and WSRP, which significantly reduces the cost of maintaining a heterogeneous environment.

Unlock the Value of Enterprise Data
Allow your organization to interact with enterprise data directly within the SharePoint and Office experience, in both read and write modes. Users are able to work with enterprise data as easily as with SharePoint data, either offline or connected, or directly in the rich experience of Microsoft Office.
Maintain Control over End User Solutions
IT professionals can manage user solutions and define resource throttling controls on resource consumption on your server infrastructure, letting SharePoint take care of ensuring that solutions stay within your predefined limits. This allows them to maintain operational insight and a stable platform, whether online or on-premises.
Manage Content And Processes
Simplify compliance efforts and keep business information more secure through a comprehensive set of tools to manage and control electronic content. Streamline the everyday business processes that are a drain on organizational productivity by using electronic forms and out-of-the-box workflow processes that users can initiate, track, and participate in through familiar Microsoft Office applications, e-mail, or Web browsers.
Control documents through detailed, extensible policy management
Define customized document management policies to control access rights at a per-item level, specify retention period and expiration actions, and track content through document-auditing settings. Policy integration with familiar client applications makes compliance transparent and easy for employees. Integration with Information Rights Management helps ensure that proprietary and confidential information is better protected even if it is not connected to a server.
Centrally store, manage, and access documents across the enterprise
Organizations can store and organize all business documents and content in one central location, and users have a consistent mechanism to navigate and find relevant information. Default repository settings can be modified to add workflow, define retention policies, and add new templates and content types.
Simplify Web content management
Provide easy-to-use functionality to create, approve, and publish Web content. Master Pages and Page Layouts provide reusable templates for a consistent look and feel. New functionality enables enterprises to publish content from one area to another (for example, from a collaborative site to a portal), or to cost-effectively manage multilingual delivery of content on multiple intranet, extranet, and Internet sites.
Extend business processes across the organization
Forms Services–driven solutions make it possible to more securely and accurately collect information both inside and outside the organization without coding any custom applications. This information can then be integrated easily into line-of-business systems, stored in document libraries, used to start workflow processes, or submitted to Web services, thus avoiding duplicate effort and costly errors resulting from manual data entry.
Streamline everyday business activities
Take advantage of workflows to automate and gain more visibility into common business activities such as document review and approval, issue tracking, and signature collection. Integration with familiar Microsoft Office client applications, e-mail, and Web browsers simplifies the user experience. Organizations can easily modify the out-of-the-box processes or define their own processes using familiar Microsoft tools such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer or Microsoft Visual Studio development system.
Improve Business Insight
Effectively monitor business drivers, empower better informed decisions throughout the organization, and proactively respond to important business events.
Present business-critical information in one central location
Create live, interactive business intelligence (BI) portals that assemble and display business information from disparate sources by using integrated BI capabilities such as dashboards, Web Parts, key performance indicators (KPIs), and business data connectivity technologies. Centralized Report Center sites give users a single place to find the latest spreadsheets, reports, or KPIs.
Quickly connect people with information
Enterprise Search in Office SharePoint Server 2013 incorporates people and business data along with documents and Web pages to provide more comprehensive results. The Search Center provides a single integrated location for employees to find content, processes, people, and business data relevant to their specific needs. This enables people and organizations to make decisions based on the latest information and facts more quickly.
Share business data broadly while helping to protect sensitive information
Excel Services running on Office SharePoint Server 2013 provides access to data and analytics in real time, interactive Microsoft Office Excel spreadsheets from a Web browser. Use these spreadsheets to maintain and efficiently share one centralized and up-to-date version while helping to protect any sensitive or proprietary information embedded in documents (such as financial models).
Take advantage of your unstructured business networks to drive better decisions
Employees can use new knowledge management tools to get the most from their powerful unstructured business networks, both inside and outside their organizations, thereby connecting with people more quickly and efficiently. By exploring these undocumented business relationships and finding subject-matter experts, individuals are able to make better decisions more quickly.
Unlock business data
The Business Data Catalog enables structured data from line-of-business applications, such as SAP and Siebel systems, to be integrated into Office SharePoint Server 2013 through Web Parts, lists, people profiles, search, or programmatically. Centrally managed connections to back-end systems can be defined once and then reused by end-users to access back-end data without writing any code — easily making business data part of portal content. The Business Data Catalog also provides the ability for Enterprise Search to integrate back-end business data into the search experience, without having to write any protocol handlers, iFilters, or custom code.
