SharePoint devotees, especially those jumping on SharePoint 2013, might be apt to align with their broader Office upgrade strategy. Forrester's "Office 2013: A Breakthrough In Productivity" report notes a significant change in application development with the 2013 platform. "For the first time ever, developers will use the same technologies and frameworks to build custom applications using Office -- Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint -- and SharePoint," the report said. "Thus, application skills, tools, and life-cycle management environments can be converged, and code can be used in both Office and SharePoint."

Information Week only had one important New Year's Resolution this year. '"No Slide Show Articles with out a prominent 'View-as-one-page' link." How's that working out for you so far?

It's good to see the correct use of the term "on-premises" instead of the increasingly common mistake of "on premise" used even by journalists and IT professionals.

@AustinIT, those are actually live screens from a current trial subscription. But, yes, they're of the "P1" plan -- I started my trial prior to the recent reboot/re-brand of the 365 packages, which is probably why they appear "old." -Kevin C.
