Microsoft continuously rolling out its new features and now has announced the next SharePoint on premises version i.e. SharePoint 2019 and the preview will be available mid-year in 2018. As in September 2017, SharePoint 2019 is the talk of the town because of exciting features.
Here are some key announcements that we’ve been hanging onto:
“At Microsoft Ignite, we announced our vision, strategy, timeline, and investment areas for SharePoint Server 2019, in addition to our continued investment in SharePoint Server 2016 with Feature Pack 2.”
– Jeff Teper, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Office
“SharePoint Server 2019 is a comprehensive solution for connected information work that preserves structured processes, compliance, and IT investment, [and it’s] optimized for the way people work through an easily managed and integrated platform. Big bets in SharePoint on-premises 2019 are listed in the following:
- Next-Gen Sync Client support
- Modern UX throughout the product
- Flow / Power Apps integration
- Other SharePoint Online innovations.”
– Ron Grzywacz, Premier Field Engineer, Microsoft
Let’s have a look at What’s new in SharePoint 2019
Next-Gen Sync Client support
In the previous or can say that currently, the new Sync Client is not available with SharePoint on-premises, though it will be supported in SharePoint 2019. Now users can now expect a fast and reliable synchronization experience.
Modern lists, libraries and pages. However, not sure what exactly Microsoft will give us it could be a more:
- Consistent user experience across Windows, OneDrive, and SharePoint.
- Modern look and feel across Communication and Team Sites in SharePoint 2019.
- Updated mobile experience for SharePoint as well.
Flow / Power Apps integration
May be this integration feature will apply to hybrid environments. Integration with Flow and PowerApps an exciting feature also means you can more easily generate flows to move data from onprem to cloud and vice versa. I only can assume no sure about this we’ll have to wait and see how much of the functionality will be available.
- Microsoft Flow – Microsoft flow is an app which helps you to create and automate workflows across services and applications.
- Microsoft PowerApps – Microsoft PowerApps helps you to easily build business apps for use on web, iOS, Android, and Windows 10.
All we can expect only this time regardless of the exact updates we’ll be receiving. But I’m sure that SharePoint 2019 will surpass our expectations.
