K2’s applications offer several other utilities, such as working for transactional systems, developing content with reference to contexts, and creating user interfaces. In addition, K2’s applications can be connected with existing SAP, Oracle, Dynamics CRM, and Salesforce systems to securely pull data from entire organizations, maintaining just one SOR (System of Record). “Moving on the lines of advanced applications, K2 also provides a cloud-based platform, Appit, that works equally well with on-premises SharePoint 2013 environment,” van Wyk says.
