Microsoft releases IT Preview of SharePoint 2016

Earlier this year, Microsoft announced their vision, strategy, timeline and investment in three major areas: familiar and intuitive user experiences, cloud-inspired infrastructure with hybrid at the core and robust security and compliance for SharePoint Server 2016. On that track, Microsoft released the SharePoint Server 2016 "IT Preview" version, which offers a first look at the various improvements in the upcoming version of SharePoint. It includes Integration of cloud services with on-premises with converged codebase between SharePoint on-premises and cloud. SharePoint Server 2016 IT Preview has been designed, developed, and tested with the Microsoft Software as a Service (SaaS) strategy at its core.

SharePoint 2016 IT Preview

What’s new?

For End user:  In addition to a consistent cross-screen experience, SharePoint Server 2016 provides the latest technologies and standards for mobile push, information synchronization, responsive design and touch mobile experience.

IT Pros: SharePoint Server 2016 provides new role based configuration wizard and capabilities that enable device-specific targeting of content. This feature brings flexibility in terms of being able to use SharePoint on various hardware shapes, sizes, and capabilities based on the different roles that you have.  The most welcome improvement is minimal patches with Zero Downtime.

Developer: Developers can now extend applications across on-premises and Office 365 as Office 365 API is back to SharePoint Server 2016 on premises. Developer can create applications using common consent, subscription apps and a number of different capabilities that they’re familiar within the cloud. “Build once and deploy twice” feature enables developers to build one application and deploy on both SharePoint online and on-premises.
