The Future of SharePoint and Office 365

  1. 1. The Future of SharePoint/ Office 365
  2. 2. Welcome to the future!
  3. 3. The SharePoint and Office 365's future that is.
  4. 4. "More than 200,000 organizations use SharePoint today." (Microsoft)
  5. 5. "More than 50,000 partners and 1 million developers make up a $10 billion solutions ecosystem around SharePoint." (Microsoft)
  6. 6. SharePoint and Office365 users want to know...
  7. 7. ...where the program is headed.
  8. 8. So what exactly is the fate of SharePoint/ Office 365?
  9. 9. We looked into our crystal ball to find out...
  10. 10. ...a.k.a we scoured the Internet for expert opinions.
  11. 11. Here's what we found:
  12. 12. 1. The Future is Hybrid
  13. 13. While Microsoft is maintaining a cloud-first strategy,
  14. 14. the next generation of SharePoint Is Hybrid.
  15. 15. "The future of SharePoint begins with SharePoint Online, meaning changes, features and functionality will first be deployed to SharePoint Online, and then rolled out to your SharePoint Server On- Premises deployment." -Brian Alderman,
  16. 16. "There was a recent survey done by Microsoft that shows that within the next five years or so, it’s looking that everyone is going to hybrid." - Nick Brattoli, Community Manager at Collab365
  17. 17. The idea being that users with a preference for either cloud or On-Premises will be able to both equally enjoy the power of SharePoint/Office 365.
  18. 18. 2. The Future is Specialized
  19. 19. A common criticism of SharePoint is its inability to support built in customization,
  20. 20. forcing users to utilize add-ons and build outside of SharePoint,
  21. 21. creating "Frankenstein" Intranets, comprised of mixed and matched pieces.
  22. 22. In other words, users are essentially shaping their own future by adapting and evolving how their Intranets are customized.
  23. 23. "I feel like we are evolving and features are becoming more custom. We’re seeing collaboration features stepping out of the SharePoint container and being their own product." - Heather Newman, Content Panda
  24. 24. "I’d like to see things split out of SharePoint so that people can mix and match, pulling things in and out and replacing things with different components that are available to you." -Andrew Connell, Microsoft MVP since 2005
  25. 25. 3. The Future is Collab Driven
  26. 26. SharePoint has always been about collaboration at its core.
  27. 27. And the future shows no signs of being any different.
  28. 28. "When we look at SharePoint online, collaboration is still a major reason to use it." - Andrew Connell, Microsoft MVP since 2005
  29. 29. “We are continuing to advance SharePoint, OneDrive and the entire Office 365 service in ways that make productivity even more collaborative, intelligent, mobile and trustworthy.” —Satya Nadella
  30. 30. 4.The Future Is About You
  31. 31. Microsoft recently released their strategic approach to the future of SharePoint,
  32. 32. with one of the key areas being User Experiences.
  33. 33. "The future of SharePoint is all about people and there should be no doubt that Microsoft is continuing to invest in providing great people experiences with SharePoint." -Susan Hanley, Network World
  34. 34. Future focuses include multi device access, familiarity, intuition, personalization and manageability.
  35. 35. "It’s an exciting time to be part of the SharePoint community. The team at Microsoft is energized and highly focused on rapidly enhancing the experiences for people in your business to get work done in ways that are simple, secure, and easy- to-use." - Susan Hanley, Network World
  36. 36. "On behalf of everyone on our team, I welcome you to the future of SharePoint. The future starts today." —Jeff Teper
  37. 37. Let's face the future together.
