SharePoint 2016 has outdone itself with a set of new, effective features that have been introduced. From enriching hybrid search experiences to One Drive redirection, SharePoint has aced the game of document management systems. An amalgamation of all the new hybrid features in one sentence could be – a brilliant and seamless user experience in terms of two environments: On-Premises and Office 365. From a Hybrid experience point of view, following are a few noticeable and improved features that we think are perfect for end users.Hybrid Search Feature:
An enterprise has a hybrid environment if their content applications are common between on-premises and Office 365. It is now easier to find content, no matter where it lives thanks to a unified search. The cloud hybrid search solution provides the ability to crawl and parse on-premises content and then process and index it in Office 365. When users query the search index in Office 365, they receive search results from both on-premises and Office 365 content.Hybrid App Launcher:
The extensible hybrid app launcher is designed to help you get to your Office 365 apps and services from SharePoint Server. Your Office 365 Delve and Video Apps and you customized Office 365 tiles will pop up in your SharePoint Server app launcher once you have enabled this feature. Changes in UI have also been introduced to enhance the hybrid experience.User Profiles:
User profile information will be stored within both, the SharePoint server and Office 365. When a user wants to edit or view his information, that user will be redirected to his profile in Office 365. This will enable users to have to his information in one place. These users will be called Hybrid users and their profiles as Hybrid profiles.Links to OneDrive:
You can now redirect documents to OneDrive for Business. Users can continue using their Documents and other similar folder and it doesn’t require changing their daily work habits in order to use OneDrive for Business. Using OneDrive for Business for your documents gives you a backup of your data in the cloud and gives you access to your documents from any device and also when a user clicks on OneDrive, he’ll be redirected to his Office 365 My Site and no longer to his On-Premises.Easy To Consume:
It is now easy to consume data because of SharePoint 2016’s well integrated feature. SP’s easy-t-format attribute helps effortless consumption of data for application developers utilizing this system.
The hybrid offering by SharePoint has made every user’s experience better and has positively enhanced their skills. Help us help you upgrade to the latest version of SharePoint 2016 and make use of its improved hybrid features today!

Machine Learning is a form of Artificial Intelligence that enables a computer system to learn without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning sifts through data to look for specific patterns and uses there patterns to program actions accordingly. Machine Learning (ML) is quickly expanding and is growing in recognition owing to the fact that ML can play a key role in a wide range of critical applications, such as data mining, natural language processing, image recognition, and expert systems. ML provides potential solutions in all these domains and more, and is set to be a pillar of the future!
There exists two types of machine learning: Supervised and Unsupervised. Among the different types of ML tasks, a crucial distinction is drawn between supervised and unsupervised learning:
|Supervised Machine Learning||Unsupervised Machine Learning|
|The program is “trained” on a pre-defined set of “training examples”, which then facilitate its ability to reach an accurate conclusion when given new data.||Unsupervised Machine learning uses those type of algorithms that try to find correlations without any external input. The program is given data and must find patterns and relationships therein.|

SharePoint 2016 and SharePoint Online are the two newest upgrades of SharePoint launched by Microsoft in a bid to improve efficiency and functionality for its users. The new versions of this multifaceted document management system have a multitude of new and more beneficial features that sets it apart from its predecessors.
Following are a few of the features that have been revamped or upgraded to enhance user experience.OneDrive Redirection:
Though this has been available in SharePoint 2013, with SharePoint 2016 you can redirect your ‘My Sites’ to your Office 365 subscription’s OneDrive for Business host. In other words, if a user clicks on OneDrive, he’ll be redirected to his Office 365 My Site and no longer to his On-Premises.Sites you follow in one place:
Now users can click on “Follow” both On-Premises and on their Office 365 and see them all in one place under the “Sites” app in the App Launcher.
The wizard to configure either of the simple scenarios above work very well, as long as you follow the requirements.Hybrid Cloud Search:
The Office 365 Search will take your On-Premises SharePoint Search Index so that it can give you results from both for the same query. A unified search will be possible.
You will be required to use the Office 365 Search for this to work. If SharePoint 2016 On-Premises users query against their On-Premises Search service, it’ll continue to only give them local results.
However, once available, this will allow users to fully embrace Experiences like Delve in Office 365 and more to come in the future.App Launcher and UI changes in SharePoint 2016:
SharePoint 2016 introduces the App Launcher, as well as changes to the UI, to help it match the Office 365 experience.MinRoles:
It is now possible to install whichever role that you please on particular SharePoint 2016 servers. Not only will this install what’s primarily required there, but also make sure that all servers that belong to each role are compliant. You’ll also be able to convert servers to run new roles if needed.Zero Downtime Patching:
The size and number of the packages have been immensely reduced. The downtime required by SharePoint servers to update has also been removed.Increased File Size for uploads:
The previous storage limit for SharePoint was 2GB. However, now you can store files that are far larger in size. Although there isn’t any limit, Microsoft has strongly recommended it stays at 10GB.Quick Site Creation:
By using a template, you will be now able to create Site Collections in 1 second. This compares well to SharePoint 2013 that takes up almost over 40 seconds sometimes. This will require a level of configuration with PowerShell to set up.
