André Vala, SharePoint Solutions Architect at Create IT and Microsoft MVP, closed the launching session of the new version of Microsoft's collaboration platform that took place on June 22 at the headquarters of Microsoft in Lisbon (after the global launch on May 4). It was with great enthusiasm that we accepted the invitation, participated and contributed to this event (targeted to partners), representing another milestone in the SharePoint history in Portugal.

During his presentation "SharePoint: The platform of the future," André Vala shared with the audience the main innovations and hybrid capabilities of the new version that was eagerly awaited by the community and confirmed the huge expectations around it. Born in the cloud, installed on-premises and hybrid by nature, SharePoint 2016 now leverages a more simple and powerful file sharing, an intelligent and mobile intranet, an improved security, privacy and compliance, and a more agile open and connected platform.
