Microsoft is planning to publically demo the latest version of its enterprise collaboration platform, SharePoint Server 2016, for the first time this May.
The solution will be revealed at Microsoft Ignite – a new event that brings together the company’s Management Summit, Exchange, SharePoint, Lync, Project and TechEd conferences – taking place on 4-8 May in Chicago, US.
Last month, Julia White, general manager for the Office Product Management team, shared some details about the upcoming version of its on-premise platform, stating that “it has been designed, developed and tested with the Microsoft software as a service strategy at its core, drawing from SharePoint Online.”
She said that customers can look forward to enhanced, flexible deployment options, improved reliability and new IT agility, enabled for massive scale.
In line with this, White explained that Microsoft is exploring ways in which customers can take advantage of hybrid deployments of the new SharePoint Server. “With SharePoint Server 2016, in addition to delivering rich on-premises capabilities, we’re focused on robust hybrid enablement in order to bring more of the Office 365 experiences to our on-premises customers,” she said.
As well as an exclusive preview of SharePoint Server 2016, Ignite attendees can also look forward to finding out more about the latest developments being made to Office 365 and hear about Microsoft’s overall technology vision and strategy.
