5 Reasons You Need to Upgrade to SharePoint 2016 Today

Have you ever had an old car that was really past its prime but you loved and drove anyway? Maybe you had gotten used to the old CD player shorting out or the hand-cranked windows. Perhaps you already had accepted your V4 engine, faulty air conditioning, and superfluous hail damage. You were used to that car, so you drove it.

Now imagine that we take your old clunker and fixed the dings and scratches, gave it a fresh coat of paint, and cleaned out the interior. Not only did we make it look great, but you’ll find once you step inside or peek under the hood that we built it to last. The engine is a super-speedy Tesla special that will require much less maintenance and can run on clean energy while getting you where you need to be faster. But that’s not all – we’ve also updated the safety features, giving you a backup camera and 10 strategically-placed airbags to protect you should an accident occur. We bet your salivating right now over this souped-up dream car!

This is pretty much what happens when you upgrade your old SharePoint farm to SharePoint 2016.

Here are some of the major improvements you’ll experience when you migrate to SharePoint 2016 with the help of Fpweb.net!

Improved User Experience – While you’ll get the SharePoint Server you know and love, the user interface has been vastly improved in many ways. Hybrid customers will see almost direct parity in the UI experience of SharePoint 2016 through Office 365 with SharePoint Online, reducing user friction in hybrid environments. Meanwhile, on-premises-only customers will finally see the value accrued in Office 365 with an improved document library experience and many other UI improvements. Best of all, these improvements can be experienced equally on screens of all sizes, including mobile devices!

Tighter Compliance, Greater Insight – While there has always been great security in SharePoint and Office 365, the latest SharePoint Server installment has quite a lot more to offer. For those who seek tighter compliance, authorization and auditing are more centralized in SharePoint 2016. IT can now locate and manage your company’s sensitive data as well. Hybrid customers have the ability to take advantage of a new set of features that provides insight into analytics streams for both compliance and usage reporting purposes. This allows you to have the ability to understand who is accessing what, from where, and when.

Lose Nothing Again – Unlike previous versions of SharePoint, there are no user-facing deprecations in SharePoint 2016. InfoPath still functions as it did previously, and you can use InfoPath 2013 as your client application. Additionally SharePoint Designer 2013 can still create workflows in the style of either SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint 2010. Finally, with Office Online Server, you can find what you need and more with Excel and other Office programs!

Outstanding Quality – There’s no doubt about it, SharePoint 2016 delivers with significant quality improvements for both hybrid and on-premises farms. Not only will you see higher capacity boundaries and performance improvements, but you’ll also have the opportunity to patch well-architected SharePoint farms with miniscule downtime and much more.
