Cloud or On-Premises? Why Not Go Hybrid With SharePoint 2016?

February 9, 2016

Given the range of options that businesses have when it comes to hybrid scenarios, companies everywhere struggle with the direction they want to go in. They find themselves asking, “Should we opt for a hybrid solution? Cloud only? Maybe stick with on-premises services?”

With the upcoming SharePoint 2016, businesses no longer need to think strictly of the cloud or on-premises. These systems don’t need to compete against each other any longer; rather, they can now work together to create a hybrid scenario that has the potential to totally reinvent productivity while still helping businesses slowly integrate to the cloud.

Hybrid scenarios in SharePoint 2016 will allow you to integrate your on-premises farm with Office 365 productivity experiences. This allows you to adopt the cloud at your own pace. You can also have a single profile in Office 365, and all of your profile information will be stored there in one easily-accessible location.

When you choose to operate in a hybrid model in SharePoint 2016, you will experience the best of both worlds. The latest model of SharePoint will have new features available via Office 365, including Delve and the Office Graph. These are tools that would otherwise never become available on-premises since they depend on the cloud to operate. This is especially handy if you cannot store data on the cloud due to legal reasons but still want to experience all the benefits that the cloud has to offer.

If you’re a fan of Azure, you can now enjoy searching with some serious horsepower, thanks to SharePoint 2016. You can also experience higher security, better reliability, and lower latency when you directly connect SharePoint 2016 to Azure. For the BI users, don’t worry – BI will continue to be an important play for SharePoint 2016 enterprises getting the most from SharePoint and SQL. BI filters down closer to the users with Power Bi in Office 365, and Business Connectivity Services will continue to bring external big data into your domain for analysis.

SharePoint 2016 will be here before you know it. In the meantime, you can check out our demo of SharePoint 2016 by downloading it here.

Calling All SharePoint Mobile Users! The Best Is Yet to Come in SharePoint 2016

January 25, 2016

We’ve been keeping up with all of the many new features that the upcoming SharePoint 2016 will be providing. Aside from newer increased speed, greater usability, and a larger content database size (among many other exciting elements), one of the best features of the latest version of SharePoint is all of the enhancements that are aimed at smartphone and tablet users.

SharePoint 2016 will have a host of new mobility features, including an interface that gives users the ability to switch easily from mobile view to desktop view. The older versions of SharePoint were not very user-friendly on this front, but SharePoint 2016 will ensure a consistent experience across screens of all shapes and sizes, whether they’re desktops, hand-held devices, tablets, or anything else that allows you to access the Internet. There will also be new mobile and touch enhancements, making your SharePoint experience quick and convenient with intuitive controls.

Additionally, SharePoint 2016 will provide the latest technologies and standards for mobile push and information synchronization. With a deep investment in HTML5, the newest version of SharePoint will give users the capability to enable device-specific content targeting, allowing users to have access to information no matter where they are or what screen they choose to use.

The new software that will soon be at our fingertips will empower the workforce at large with a consistent experience across all screens. It’s just another way that Microsoft is working to close the technical gaps between Office’s mobile, PC, and online clients. The name of the game is easy transitioning with greater efficiency and speed, and SharePoint 2016 delivers just that without sacrificing feature fidelity.

If you’re as excited about this as we are and can’t wait to get your hands on the newest version of SharePoint, check out our demo on our website at www.fpweb.net!
