SharePoint provides content management and collaboration capabilities. It's one of Microsoft's multi-billion-dollar businesses in its own right, and currently has more than 190 million users in 200,000-plus companies, Microsoft officials say.
As officials have made clear previously. those using SharePoint Online, rather than SharePoint on-premises, will get all new features first. Some of the features on this list won't ever make it into SharePoint on-premises, as some of those are cloud-dependent (for example, anything dependent on Office 365 Groups or the Office Graph).
The SharePoint mobile app -- which Microsoft is billing as providing users with the "your Intranet in your pocket" -- will allow users to access SharePoint content, sites, portals and people on their mobile phones.
For those wondering when and whether Microsoft might say more about what's coming on the placeholder-replacement front for OneDrive, there's no new news this week. Microsoft officials still are declining to say when and how the company will make this capability available to OneDrive users, even though Microsoft cloud-storage rival DropBox just announced its own plans for a placeholder-type solution.
