Microsoft’s SharePoint (part of the Office 365 suite) was recognized as a pioneer.
SharePoint has doubled in popularity since last year as a collaborative platform that both individuals and organizations use to work and share documents, images, ideas, and more and also considering the current work-from-home situation.
As such the app, as reported by one of Microsoft’s corporate VPs, has reached over 200 million active users every month.
The bright current & future of SharePoint
SharePoint now offers a convenient solution for document management and collaboration across all Microsoft 365 suites. That includes Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Lists, Microsoft Stream, or Yammer, the Office 365 suite.
The Leader distinction, which comes for the fourth year in a row, is definitely inspiring for developers to continue developing the product so that in the near future it can continue its smooth climb.
In recent years, we have invested in a modern architecture for SharePoint storage, network, and experience deployed across more than 60 regional data centres that accommodate millions of data requests per second and exabytes of data. This new platform helps us to provide you with innovations more quickly, and in 2021 you will see us bring many new SharePoint-powered experiences in collaboration, media, security, intelligence, custom solutions, and more to the market.
Many working in SharePoint greatly enjoy the simplicity of document development and exchanging or communicating the status of different projects, as well as the incorporation of a whole pack of applications, according to the Gartner numbers. Data migration or integration with other programmes outside Microsoft, on the other hand, is more complex.
The Microsoft official, however, added that user feedback has played an important role in the latest changes, so it is anticipated that such reviews would also take potential enhancements into account.
Syntex, a platform that utilises advanced AI and computer teaching to simplify content creation, and Project Cortex, a technology that utilises existing data and then applies AI to modify the way it is processed, are the new SharePoint updates.
