SP2013 vs 2016

New Features in SharePoint 2013

  • Robust App Catalog and Marketplace
  • Mobile version (not just mobile views) with native support for iOS and Android
  • SharePoint 2010 End-of-Life is October 2020
  • Huge upgrade in usability across typical collaboration workloads with Team Sites, My Sites, communities and ECM all upgraded to help usability, as well as cross-browser and cross-device availability, better offline options (SkyDrive), better sharing features, and team work features
  • Massive upgrade in workloads – WCM, social, search, and mobile access
  • There is no more “in place upgrade” to SharePoint 2013. Instead, you can attach a 2010 content database to the 2013 farm. You have the option of retaining the content database as a 2010 content database and to perform what is called a “deferred site collection upgrade.”
  • User experience improvement includes drag-and-drop to upload documents, and the ability to edit managed metadata in a datasheet view
  • Social experiences improvement with discussion boards being more engaging and “Facebook-like”
