From Saifullah Shafiq, "A Practical Guide to SharePoint 2013" is a simple and effective way to learn the ins and outs of Microsoft’s popular application. Contending that many businesses could solve their issues simply by utilizing SharePoint’s myriad of capabilities, Shafiq offers his guide as a tool for getting the most from SharePoint, and for implementing its technologies into day-to-day operations.

Frederick, MD, February 14, 2014 --( Saifullah Shafiq is the President of Wali Systems Inc., a company that has been providing SharePoint consulting, staffing and development services for many years.

Shafiq’s SharePoint blog ( is one of the most read blogs on SharePoint technology.

“Microsoft has invested tremendously in this product and it has evolved over the years and has become a must-have product. It provides team collaboration, document sharing and management, Search, Social integration, and so on but since it is a big product and companies usually do not have well-trained resources to perform the operations, they get into trouble and complain about the product,” says Shafiq.
