SharePoint Server Products Arriving in 2015

Microsoft won’t ship new releases of Exchange Server or SharePoint  Server until sometime next year, the company indicated late in March.

The notice news comes from Jeff Teper, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of the Office  Service and Servers group, in an  announcement. Microsoft’s current server releases are Exchange  Server 2013 and SharePoint Server 2013. Teper said nothing about the next Office release. Veteran  Microsoft watcher Mary Jo Foley indicated that the next Office product also will appear in 2015.

The expectation that new server products might be released in  2014 comes from Microsoft’s new  accelerated release cycle. The company now tends to release new server and  operating system software products on an annual basis, instead of once every  three years. Typically, the releases are “cloud first,” which means  that updates arrive faster to Office 365 hosted solutions (Exchange Online,  Lync Online and SharePoint Online) than they do to Microsoft’s server products  installed on premises.
