Here is an excerpt from Bill Baer and Troy Starr’s July 20, 2021 article “A new day for SharePoint Server”, on the Microsoft Tech Community website. Read the article in its entirety here.
“Today we’re excited to open the window to our vision, strategy, and future for SharePoint and provide a first look at the most recent developments with SharePoint Server. SharePoint has been a key accelerator for collaboration and productivity for decades, from the business value for organizations looking to modernize their workplace and infrastructure to the technical value delivers to IT professionals and developers, and more recently with new hybrid investments for those customers looking to enrich their existing investments with cloud innovation. With the 20th anniversary of SharePoint just behind us, it’s a great time to look back and provide a little historical SharePoint information.
20 years ago, “Exchange and SharePoint became best friends.” Exchange Server worked on a new information store (Web Store) to support document, web content, and e-mail management. Codename Tahoe (the genesis of SharePoint Products and Technologies) advanced Exchange Server introducing document management capabilities through WebDAV (Document Authoring and Versioning) in addition to an improved search and indexing engine. Exchange Server and Tahoe would represent a new, next generation messaging, collaboration, and document management platform.
Now we’re delighted to share our progress towards the next generation of SharePoint, built on these same principles.
SharePoint Server Subscription Edition represents the next step in the SharePoint Server journey emphasizing the specific needs of our on-premises customers.
We designed SharePoint Server SE around the core principles of:
- Always up to date
- Secure and reliable
- Designed for you”
