Part I: SharePoint Composite Fundamentals
What is a SharePoint Composite?
Your organization has chosen and deployed Microsoft SharePoint Products 2013, and you’re on a mission to use and evangelize its many benefits. As you promote and adopt SharePoint Products 2013 throughout your business, you find the need to help users change old habits. Instead of storing files in network or e-mail folders, you gradually move them to SharePoint libraries for central management. Instead of routing documents in e-mail, you send links so that all users see the same and latest copy of the file in a shared library. Instead of attaching a spreadsheet of tables in e-mail, you use a list and list views to easily share and update the same data. Instead of manually performing routine business processes, you are using workflows to streamline regular tasks. Gradually, you are moving key project, content, and process information from individual e-mail accounts, personal computers, network drives, and sticky notes to SharePoint Products 2013 so that your teams and business can collaborate much more effectively.
But, is there more? Yes there is, and it’s called SharePoint Composites.
SharePoint Composites enable you to rapidly create solutions by assembling, connecting, and configuring the basic building blocks of functionality available in SharePoint Products 2013, and in many cases, Microsoft Office 2013. A SharePoint Composite combines data, documents, and business process in a useful, productive way.
If you've got SharePoint you might as well leverage it for all it's worth, right?
