Wishlist: SharePoint 2013

31 Jan
January 31, 2012

Yesterday the SharePoint 2013 SDK (Preview) was released and that made me thinking:

What are my wishes for SharePoint 2013

  1. FAST for SharePoint as Service Application
    • That’s my top wish. Easier provisioning of FAST and easier (cheaper :)) licensing, e.g. coupled with ECALs, would help FS4SP to cover more ground.
    • The same applies to Reporting Services with SQL 2012 (Denali) so I think my wish could come true.
  2. jQuery Integration (no silverlight anymore! )
    • Drag and Drop everywhere
    • More ajax / WCF-Webservices
  3. Metro-Style MasterPages
  4. Better Linq for SharePoint
    • Support impersonation!
  5. Powershell everywhere
    • Configuring something in the Central Administration and the option to get the configuration changes as a powershell script – would love it! I heard somewhere that’s the way Exchange does it…


More wishes to come

I think that’s a good start, I will update the post with more wishes over time.

How about your wishes? Share them please!
