SharePoint 2013 is the latest iteration of the collaboration platform tool, and it comes revamped with new features that add social media capabilities while easing the overall user experience.

Microsoft pushed for easier integration with Exchange 2013 in its release of SharePoint 2013. The eDiscovery Center makes it easier to perform e-discovery, which is a must in today’s legal climate that calls for simple data location and retrieval.

Another feature that eases integration with Exchange 2013 is the site mailbox. Site mailboxes let users have access to SharePoint documents and Exchange email with Outlook 2013.

The other major change that comes with SharePoint 2013 is in licensing. Although Microsoft left the basic licensing model alone, the company did away with license requirements for external users, as well as the FAST search feature. In turn, Microsoft created a new search feature and new requirements that can save organizations money.
