Microsoft is moving away from code-based sandbox solutions.

Five trends that increase Office 365 and SharePoint user engagement

Oct 18, 2016 5:14:01 PM

Upgrading, migrating or just deploying SharePoint is a whole new ballgame now, not to mention all of the other Office 365 applications you need to keep in mind.

And while Office 365 is a great long-term solution, the investment many companies have already made in SharePoint is too great to just “start over” in Office 365.
