SharePoint 2013 offers a simplified user experience and added enterprise social media capabilities, which expand upon previously offered capabilities for website management that include shared calendars, blogs, wikis, surveys, document libraries and shared task lists. SharePoint 2013 includes a community forum for users to engage in and categorize discussions, a microblogging capability and enhanced search capabilities.

SharePoint 2013, which was released in November 2012, also includes an e-discovery functionality, claims-based authentication and support for mobile user. The business intelligence tools included in SharePoint 2013 enable business users to organize goals and processes as well as create customizable data models, reports and dashboards.
