What’s New in SharePoint 2016
SharePoint 2016 was first announced at the Microsoft Ignite 2015 conference in May, 2015. It was the very first time that Microsoft went public with details about what the next major version of its on-premises version of the software was going to include. At that time, several exclusive participants from the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) community had already been selected, one of the authors included, to participate in what the software company calls a Technical Assessment Program (TAP). This very limited program granted access to Alpha versions of what would eventually become SharePoint 2016 to its members. For months we've tested the new features and those that have been updated, reporting bugs and making suggestions back to the product team.
