SharePoint is a rapidly expanding platform for enterprise collaboration, with a new release already on the horizon. Only two years after the release of SharePoint 2010, Microsoft is gradually revealing details on what users can expect in the next version, which many anticipate will be available in early 2013. With widespread expectations beginning to surface around social capabilities, the cloud, and a new interface, the early anticipation indicates users are already thinking about what’s next for SharePoint. As organizations start considering the next version, there are many ways they can prepare their environment today, to gain immediate benefits now, and be ready to quickly take advantage of new features later.
Quest Software, a leading provider of SharePoint tools for the enterprise, recommends organizations put a ‘next version readiness’ plan into action, and provides eight specific actions organizations should take to prepare their environment for the future.

Eight Ways to Prepare for the Next Release of SharePoint:
Quest Expert Presenting on Next Version Readiness at TEC 2012:
“There are many things IT can do early to make a future SharePoint upgrade quick and feasible; there are also plenty of things that would make the transition difficult, if not impossible. Being aware of both and proactively getting ready for what’s coming down the pike will enable organizations to maximize their investment and take advantage of all the exciting new functionality expected in the next release as soon as possible. Implementing changes and leveraging new capabilities like social and cloud will be much easier to do within an existing SharePoint version with which IT is familiar, and already knows well. Best practices advise that you do these things now – don’t wait.”
