Microsoft SharePoint 2016 Hits General Availability
Microsoft is bringing SharePoint into its cloud-first, mobile-first vision as it has announced the general availability of SharePoint Server 2016, Project Server 2016, and Office Online Server on Wednesday.
As part of the update, SharePoint Server 2016 includes new hybrid capabilities.
“As a core part of Office 365, SharePoint provides content management and collaboration capabilities that are seamlessly integrated with the other applications people use every day to create and co-author documents, meet and work with their teams, brainstorm, analyze and make decisions,” Jeff Teper, corporate vice president for OneDrive and SharePoint said in a blog post. “SharePoint is also integrated with the powerful cross-suite capabilities of Office 365, such as Office 365 Groups, the Office Graph, and governance controls for security, privacy and compliance.”
Talkin’ Cloud’s sister site SharePoint Pro has a breakdown of the highlights of the offerings, which was announced at The Future of SharePoint event in San Francisco.
