What comes in SharePoint 2016?
In the second quarter of 2016 we will enjoy the new version of the collaboration platform Microsoft, SharePoint 2016 and so you go making an idea of all improvements and new features we have prepared a summary of the highlights. Broadly speaking we can say the new version of SharePoint comes with important new features along with a greater integration with Office 365 and improved hybrid models. Areas for improvement and new focus on: User Experience, integration and hybrid cloud security and compliance.
Aware of the importance of mobility, Microsoft has sought to improve this aspect in the new version of SharePoint by offering a better user experience from mobile devices to access content, people and applications.
These enhancements provide file management and document collaboration unprecedented and simple touch experience and adapted to any device with new controls that simplify the way the user interacts with the documents and items in a list. It has also improved OneDrive to get it the natural center of the files and has increased file support up to 10GB in size as well as preview images and videos.
On the other hand, the new version comes with an application launcher similar to that we offer Office 365 and facilitates users to launch applications from the top navigation bar.
Integration with hybrid cloud
One of the most important news of the new version of SharePoint is the hybrid solution that Microsoft offers to combine SharePoint Server and SharePoint Online for companies that do not yet have their cloud services can benefit from the capabilities performance and reliability of this.
The integration offers a new feature hybrid search through Office Delve that allows users of Office 365 that also use local SharePoint, easy access to files stored on your company and Microsoft’s cloud. Search engine indexing is done through Office 365 so dramatically reduces the work they have to perform local servers.
Another important new features offered by SharePoint 2016 is the improvement in IT management in integrating SharePoint Server with other products such as Exchange Server, SQL Server and Windows Server.
Microsoft Flow and PowerApps
One of the important news is the addition of two new services that Microsoft promotes the creation of multi – device applications and business flows:
The first is Microsoft Flow, a new service that allows you to organize workflows in the cloud such as creating flows, automate backup, alerts, etc. Flow integration with SharePoint will create workflows from a SharePoint list.
The second is Microsoft PowerApps, a service designed to help employees of a company to create the apps they need quickly and easily connect to enterprise systems in a secure manner and share their applications easily with their peers.
Security and Compliance
Compliance with the law is essential for organizations and affects these digital documents.
