6 Microsoft Ignite SharePoint 2016 Sessions You’ll Want to Attend

While Microsoft’s philosophy is mobile-first, cloud-first, there is still plenty to be said about on-premises and hybrid SharePoint deployments. The general availability of SharePoint 2016 this year shows Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to its on premises customers – and the session catalog for this year’s Microsoft Ignite conference is even more proof.

SharePoint 2016 created a lot of buzz and continues to drive conversations about maximizing productivity and collaboration for those who aren’t ready to go all-in to the cloud. Take note of these Microsoft Ignite SharePoint 2016 sessions and add them to your schedule builder so you don’t miss out! And since SharePoint 2016 makes running a hybrid deployment easier than ever, there are plenty of sessions on that, too.
