Business mashups on Office 365


While Office 365 delivers a high level of user productivity on the cloud, each of its workloads is delivered in separate modules. However, when you are working on a business process, you might need all of your emails, contacts, calendar, documents and lists to complete the task. Hence when you are switching between these modules, it may slow you down or even distract you. Wouldn’t it be convenient if you could create a process folder that aggregate all the related information that you need for better collaboration and informed decision making.

That is the vision of Webparts360 AppStudio for Office 365! It is a next generation cloud application development tool that allows you to re-use the different O365 contents into a business context, such as projects management, procurement, employee self-service and etc… It even allows you to incorporate back end corporate data securely so that you can apply business rules to automate business processes. Since it can see data across the platform, it is the ideal platform for delivering a single view of work.
