K2 Appit for SharePoint and SharePoint 2013 Technical Comparison
SharePoint 2013 includes some improvements to its workflow capabilities, including an independent workflow engine called Workflow Manager 1.0. The new engine separates workflow functionality from other SharePoint services and provides new runtime capabilities. However, despite the addition of new features, workflow in SharePoint 2013 remains limited in many scenarios, so it is important to understand what capabilities are available, what limitations exist and why it might be necessary to turn to 3rd party workflow software, like K2 Appit for SharePoint, to build SharePoint-based workflow and forms apps that meet your needs.
This paper compares how basic workflow and business apps capabilities, including data integration, forms, workflow and management, are handled with both out-of-the-box SharePoint 2013 capabilities and K2 Appit for SharePoint.
