The good news is that SharePoint 2016 provides hybrid features that would enable enterprises to provide hybrid solutions e.g. hybrid sites, hybrid OneDrive, cloud hybrid search. Further, these features provide a smooth and consistent experience for users in an office environment. Additionally, for enterprises that want to make the most out of cloud and simultaneously want to continue using the on-premises features for managing workloads SharePoint 2016 is a perfect choice.

Let’s explore some of the exciting features of Microsoft SharePoint 2016:

Cloud Centric

SharePoint 2016 is the first version of SharePoint which has been built ‘from the cloud down’. It deeply reflects Microsoft’s affinity towards mobile-first, cloud-first strategy. The primary focus of SharePoint 2016 remains on introducing hybrid capabilities, cloud technology and mobile accessibility. However, if your enterprise is not too keen about adopting the ‘Cloud’  there is a provision to opt out, although Microsoft is clearly giving priority to the cloud first strategy.

By taking advantage of these new capabilities and offerings of SharePoint 2016, enterprises will be able to save and retrieve vital information effortlessly, further all the information can be quickly accessed via your mobile device. Additionally, SharePoint’s cloud hybrid search option lets users search for documents both online as well as offline. Further, Microsoft went ahead and incorporated some of the existing features of Office 365 and Delve in SharePoint 2016.

Revamped Interface

SharePoint 2016 is going to provide its users the feel of Office 365. If you are an avid SharePoint user then you might be familiar with the ribbon present in the 2013 version of SharePoint, this is going to be interchanged with an application launcher and files which are present in Office 365. The intent of this change is to make the user experience less complex, especially for users who are used to the Office 365 environment, this new change will eliminate confusion for users.

Improvements in File Size Limit

Earlier versions of SharePoint restricted the file size limit to 2 GB (upload/download). Although, this restriction never posed any obstruction to its users, however, there could be instances where a user wants to upload or download large files, such as HD videos or high quality images. To remove this constraint, a 10 GB file size upload/download limit has been set in the upcoming version of SharePoint 2016.

In the previous versions, 10 million items per index partition was only attainable, whereas in the SharePoint 2016 version, the number has been increased to 500 million. Additionally, traffic management will become effective as SharePoint allows users to configure Distributed Cache servers to load balance farm traffic using inbuilt tools.

Support for Touch-Screens
