What to look for in a mobile SharePoint solution?
Level: 100
Track: IT Pro, End-User, Business
With SharePoint / O365 being popular infrastructures for
collaboration, document management, enterprise content
management, and workflows – IT departments are investigating
how best to connect their mobile workforce to these business
critical repositories. Dedicated SharePoint applications can offer
the opportunity for improved productivity, availability and

enterprise adoption. With a wealth of different approaches to
enable mobile consumption of SharePoint I would like to share
some lessons learned while helping organizations implement
solutions for mobile workforce enablement.
