Just like your phone or mobile device uses apps to handle everything from your email to social networking to weather info, Microsoft has moved to an app model for their SharePoint 2013 release.

Here are a few benefits of an app based platform for SharePoint 2013:

  • Customization: With a wide range of apps to choose from, users can assemble the apps they need in a form that is most comfortable for them.
  • Scalability: Since apps are not tied to the main architecture of SharePoint 2013, individual apps can be adjusted to scale to the scope of each SharePoint instance.
  • BYOD-Friendly: Each app can be customized to support various operating systems and devices to enable optimum user experiences across multiple devices.
  • Isolation: Since each function is an isolated app, if a user is having issues with one app the rest of SharePoint 2013 will still function without it while the bug is fixed, that means a better, safer experience for the user.
  • Integration: SharePoint 2013 offers the ability for apps to either function as full page implementations, parts that interact with the larger SharePoint experience or simple UI command extensions that live within the framework of SharePoint.

Video is a perfect example of the kind of application SharePoint 2013’s app model makes better. Having a scalable, seamlessly integrated enterprise video solution for SharePoint 2013 will enable better communication, more collaboration and connect employees across the SharePoint network.

That’s why Qumu has rolled out the Qumu Video App for SharePoint 2013. Learn more here.
