Despite the addition of new features, workflow in SharePoint 2013 remains limited in many scenarios. This forces organisations to spend time and resources on customisation for almost all workflow applications, creating an impact on customer needs as the demand for custom forms, workflow and access to data increases in order to drive business value within SharePoint 2013 and O365.
This leads to an increase in challenges faced by organisations when building SharePoint workflow applications, and they end up with applications they did not envision. Some key challenges include:
- Building initiation and task forms beyond standard SharePoint forms is now a development exercise.
- Integrating line-of-business systems into your workflow solutions is a highly technical exercise.
- Error reporting is limited and recovery is in most cases not possible.
- Managing hybrid, on premises and cloud environments or planning for migration is incredibly difficult.
