SharePoint 2016 IT Preview

SharePoint-2016-Preview-tilted (1)

Today I read about the new release of the SharePoint 2016 IT Preview. It does appear that they are integrating quite a bit of what they have learnt and implemented in SharePoint Online into SharePoint 2016.

It is also good to see that they are looking to create a Hybrid scenario, which is similar to what they are doing with SQL Server 2016.

The one thing that I did find out is that they are depreciating support for Excel Services in SharePoint 2016. And I am sure that this will cause some concerns with existing SharePoint 2013 customers. I am not sure if I read it properly but it would appear that this might be a hybrid feature. But this still means that you would need to upload your Excel files to SharePoint Online, as well as finding ways to refresh the data in the Excel files.
