SkyDrive Pro replaces SharePoint WorkSpace
Previous versions of SharePoint relied on a workspace called WorkSpace, a client application of SharePoint 2010 that enabled synchronization in real-time of the contents of desks with documents and SharePoint lists. Now, the version of SharePoint 2013 depends on SkyDrive Pro that offers greater synchronization of documents. The employees of your company can easily synchronize the contents online and offline with a SharePoint site and benefit from the performance of SharePoint as the co-authoring of documents between users, versioning and workflows.
For those who have used Workspace, the simplicity of the sync with SkyDrive Pro is a breakthrough and one reason to use SharePoint 2013 as a document management system.
Ultimately, SkyDrive Pro is a very complete product that was good of itself in its home version.
