As some of you may know Microsoft Ignite was live from Chicago last week and Introduced us to Microsoft Latest Version of SharePoint…2016!
It was no secret that Microsoft intends to move in the Office 365 Direction and with the amount of Sessions about it you would not be surprised however as most SharePoint Consultants will tell you there are still some clients who still require SharePoint Server due to Legal and Compliance reasons. So it looks as though SharePoint 2016 is the way to go.
Here is the Links to both sessions that were the key focus points showing us the SharePoint 2016 Overview/Roadmap and also the SharePoint 2016 for IT pros video telling us about the new Features of SharePoint 2016.
The Evolution of SharePoint: Overview and Roadmap
What’s New for IT Professionals in SharePoint Server 2016
We would love to Blog about the changes however here is the slideshows and Speakers you will want to listen to.
Other key Points that came from Ignite were as follows;
80% of Forbes 500 are now using Office 365
SharePoint Designer 2016 will not be available for SharePoint 2016
