Did you know that there are more than 30 additional features in the Enterprise version of SharePoint 2016 (compared to the Standard version)?

We have chosen to repeat here only a few which seem to us the most interesting or the simplest to use. For other uses, we invite you to contact us and present us your project so that we can advise you.

Feature 1: Decision Support in Excel and Excel Services

“Decision-making” is a set of tools and processes used to collect data and to derive relevant information that can be used to inform decisions. Excel 2013/2016 offers many new, decision-oriented features that greatly simplify data collection and use of data in reporting, performance maps, and effective dashboards. Sharing, viewing, drilling, and refreshing workbooks work the same way in a browser window using Excel Services in SharePoint Server 2016 as in Excel on a personal computer.

Feature 2: Power Pivot for Excel in SharePoint

With Power Pivot for Excel, you can perform powerful data analysis and create complex data models. You can also modify large volumes of data from different sources, quickly analyze data and share ideas. With SharePoint, you can use Excel Web App to view and interact with charts, tables, PivotChart reports, and PivotTable reports in a browser window. You can also use the Excel Web Access Web Part to view Excel content in a SharePoint site. Power Pivot sheets must be created in Excel before they are displayed in SharePoint.

Feature 3: Power View for Excel in SharePoint

With Power View for Excel, you can view and interact with data modeled with highly interactive visualizations, animations, and smart queries. With SharePoint, you use Excel Web App to view and interact with workbooks that contain Power View sheets in a browser window. You can also use the Excel Web Access Web Part to view Excel content in a SharePoint site. Power View sheets must be created in Excel before they are displayed in SharePoint.

Feature 4: SharePoint Intersite Publishing

If you use your SharePoint collaborative platform with several levels of sites and sub-sites (HR, DAF, Commercial, Production, Quality), you may need to build cross-functional information content to be accessible by several groups of people usually working in their business collaborative space.

We have, for example, the problem of the list of customers of the company which must be accessible by the financial service, the commercial service, and the delivery service. With Cross-Office Publishing in SharePoint Enterprise, you have the option to activate a library or list as a catalog.

The catalog is, therefore, a new SharePoint object that takes its source in existing content that you want to make visible (read or modify) in several SharePoint subsides.

Feature 5: Configure a library of assets to store image, audio, or video files

SharePoint 2016 Enterprise lets you add a pre-configured media library to help you manage rich assets, such as images, audio files, and video files.

The functionality of asset libraries:

  • Views centered on miniatures,
  • Legends superimposed,
  • Content types of digital goods,
  • Automatically extract metadata for image files

See also upload a video, audio or pictures to a library of assets.

EDiscovery or the search for electronic discovery

EDiscovery, which could be attempted to translate into “electronic discovery search “, allows users to search electronically stored information ( GED ) that could be used as evidence for compliance and legal support. Sources of searchable content can be any type of structured content, such as documents and content list items, as well as blogs, wikis, news feeds, and mailbox content Exchange. In order to be discovered, the content must be indexed by the search engine.

Feature 6: Library permanent archives (Preservation hold library)

When the archive feature is enabled on a library, all content items that are marked as “Suspended” are then retained for archiving, but users can still edit them. The status of the content at the time of archiving is saved. If a user modifies or deletes the content, the item is retained at the time of deletion, and the original retained version remains available. Archiving can also work with eDiscovery.

Feature 7: MS Access Services

Design Web databases with your MS Access software and publish them to your SharePoint site. SharePoint visitors will be able to use your database application in a Web browser using SharePoint permissions to determine who can see what. Many sample templates allow you to quickly start working with a workgroup.

Feature 8: InfoPath Forms Services

“Forms Service” offers a form-filling experience via a Web browser in SharePoint, so you can easily create simple or complex forms that can be used to input, view, edit, or print data.

Feature 9: Data Connection Library

A data connection library is a special SharePoint library designed to store and manages connections to data files that you want to share.
