What do users expect from SharePoint 2019?
Unlike previous editions, little has been leaked about what the on-premises version that will be released later in the year will look like.
The only thing that is fair to know is that most users expect a “ Hybrid Version . ”
Let’s see what some top managers in the sector have said:

Barry Jinks, founder of Colligo claims that many of Colligo’s customers are looking to move their data to the cloud but that many remain and will continue to stay on SharePoint on-premises. Therefore, he is thrilled to be able to announce the new features of SharePoint 2019 as soon as possible, thus helping customers manage content wherever they are, even with the new hybrid environments that SharePoint 2019 will offer. “We are particularly interested in the SharePoint extensions on-premises, of the released and announced features currently available in Office365, such as categorizing content using labels and applying retention policies based on that classification. Providing this functionality would allow organizations to move all or part of their data directly to the cloud, “he said. He also hopes for more intranet options.
According to Simon De Baena, Sharegate co-founder, and CEO, moving to the Cloud has become a necessity for companies. Therefore, he hopes to find a SharePoint 2019 that will help companies in this step, that brings them closer to the cloud and that has a modern look so that users can switch between on-premises and Office 365 without difficulty.
Whatever Microsoft releases later this year, it will undoubtedly offer a lot for SharePoint on-premises and online users.
Organizations, since the latest version of Microsoft SharePoint Development Company, have been asking for hybrid capabilities. It is hoped, therefore, that their requests have been heard and accepted.
