What’s new for admins in SharePoint Server 2016

SharePoint Server 2016 is available today. If you’ve been evaluating the IT Preview and later releases since August, you’re aware of foundational updates we’ve made to SharePoint Server. For SharePoint admins this means improved provisioning and update management, new compliance tools to protect data and hybrid architectural options to link SharePoint Server 2016 with Exchange Server 2016 and Office 365. With today’s release, we’ve added a number of new capabilities based on your feedback.

In this demonstration, Bill Baer from the SharePoint team highlights what’s been added since January’s Release Candidate; Durable Links to ensure file links work even if you rename or change the location of a file, new admin experiences and the most recent additions for configuring hybrid solutions with Office 365 services.

Those are just highlights of what’s new. To learn more, check out the reviewer’s guide or download and evaluate SharePoint Server 2016.
