SharePoint On-Premises lives on With Microsoft investing so much in their Cloud products whether that’s Office 365 or Microsoft Azure, many have thought that time had been called for the On-Premises version of SharePoint.

Sure we’ll see features and changes to these Cloud products more often specially Office 365, long before we see them On-Premises.
