All about SharePoint and Agaves
Lets look at basic features of Agaves -
* Agaves will be available for download from the coming Office 15 in-app marketplace.
* There will exist different kinds of Agaves, including Content Agaves and Task Pane Agaves.
Now lets see how does it matter to our beloved SharePoint.
According to this post from Mary Jo Foley, there will exist a SharePoint connection on the Agave front and SharePoint apps will be able to be integrated with Agaves. So here is a golden chance to create applications targeted to Office suite which integrates well with SharePoint.
A SharePoint connector actually means easy access to SharePoint data in Office documents. As a SharePoint person at some point you might have wanted to integrate SharePoint list info into the work document iteslef, ya I know there are word document properties to do this but how cool is that to display SharePoint list items in a listview control in the word doc itself. I am really looking forward to the connector and innovative apps that SharePoint community with come up with.
According to the sources Agaves will also be developed for Office 365 Cloud Service which makes it more interesting.
