The SharePoint Virtual Summit rolled out Microsoft’s roadmap plans for the future.
Much of yesterday’s event focussed on SharePoint Online for those organisations with Office 365 capabilities, though it was announced that the first components of the SharePoint Framework will be brought to SharePoint Server 2016 with a Feature Pack 2 later on in the year.
“This will enable developers to use an updated client-side development model to create web parts and solutions that can power new solutions on-premises, in hybrid experiences and in Office 365,” says Microsoft in its Office Blog.
For a complete briefing watch the 2017 SharePoint Virtual Summit on the Microsoft website here (2 hours running time).

This statistic is all the more intriguing given that around 83% of those surveyed said embracing new technology would lead to greater productivity.
In 2016, Microsoft released Digital Transformation: The Age of Innocence, Inertia or Innovation?, a 52 page in-depth report which revealed that almost half of UK bosses understood they needed to embrace digital transformation or their company would fail within five years.
