Some of the first news we’re hearing about Microsoft SharePoint 2016, per the team over at Redmond Channel Partner:
An “early version” of Microsoft’s SharePoint Server 2016 product will be unveiled at the company’s Ignite conference in May, according to Bill Baer, senior product manager for SharePoint at Microsoft.
SharePoint 2016 is currently at an early development stage, Baer said during a podcast this week that was hosted and produced by Todd Klindt, a SharePoint MVP and SharePoint principal architect at Rackspace. Traditionally, Microsoft has released betas of new products before its tradeshow events. For Ignite, however, Baer said Microsoft will use an “early version” of SharePoint 2016 in many of its presentations, with further details about the product being revealed after the event.
