Modern SharePoint features

Modern SharePoint: A Launchpad to Contemporary and Mobile-Friendly Experience 

SharePoint has been around for over 15 years, which first served as an enterprise server platform and gradually became an integral part of the Office 365 cloud offering. Over that period, the capabilities of the platform have grown exponentially, while keeping the core building blocks the same – at any given point, it gives you the ability to organize, communicate, and collaborate through sites, libraries and lists. These ingredients continue to serve SharePoint and its worldwide users. 

Intranets are making great strides with their new modern communication sites and are likely to continue. Most organizations use intranets to share a quick fact or an update, or maybe a landing page about a department or working group. For medium- and small-scale organizations this may suffice, however, the larger enterprises need something robust and scalable. 


The Need for Modern Experience 

Technology has stepped forward swiftly in the last decade as we have moved towards digitization, cloud transformation, robotics, and analytics. Market developments and competition have altered commercial enterprise goals dramatically as their legacy systems are getting a face-lift, they are moving from servers to clouds, a static web-page to a responsive layout and beyond.  

Talking about the legacy corporate intranets, they lack front-end experience and diverse content editor roles. Microsoft realized the need for a modern SharePoint framework and decided to put an end to any updates to the old installations. This leaves many organizations with Intranets having very basic templates that are very nondescript and still doesn’t support accessibility by default. They introduced Modern SharePoint which is a development framework which emphasizes user experience, collaboration and efficiency, and most importantly, isn’t developer-intensive. The fundamental changes are mostly done on the client’s front instead of the server and don’t require manpower and investment for the CSS, JavaScript, and web parts. 


Capabilities of Modern SharePoint  

-Attractive, brand-specific designs that come with hub-wide navigation with increased search capabilities across all departments. 

-On-site customization within an existing hub become possible along with the easy installation of web parts with conditional formatting.  

-Automate repetitive tasks, assign site design permissions and make sure whatever is done to the intranet stands approved. 

-Turnkey solutions with noteworthy cost savings for democratized intranets that no longer require developer intensive tasks. 

-Smooth migration of complex sites that host monolithic designs and complex navigation.  


Purpose of a Modern SharePoint Intranet  

Modern SharePoint empowers you to do so much beyond simply communicating general procedures using a portal that serves are a repository for documents; it gives you the ability to design functional sites, pages, and web parts. With modernization comes innovation, collaboration and efficiencies that support activities within a working environment.
