SharePoint 2013:  The New Workflow Infrastructure

In this session, you will receive an overview of workflow and Business Process Management (BPM) and what this means with the new design tools, such as SharePoint Designer 2013, for workflow hosted by SharePoint 2013. In addition, you will learn about the architectural changes to the platform and other enhancements that have been added.


This presentation recognizes the technical solutions available within SharePoint 2013 and the considerations for extending those capabilities above and beyond SharePoint 2013.  This presentation considers the following:
