Sharepoint 2010 Sites Being Retired
Why Retire SharePoint 2010 Services?
Out with the old and in with the new. With the introduction of new Office 365 services like Groups and SharePoint online, SharePoint 2010 has become redundant. Other reasons for retiring SharePoint 2010 include:
- Microsoft no longer provides support, software fixes or software updates for SharePoint 2010
- User adoption is weak due to the learning curve required to design and administer a site in SharePoint 2010
- Lack of support for modern web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Edge
- Additional costs of supporting and administering two separate SharePoint environments
Why Move to Office 365 Groups and SharePoint Online?
Groups and SharePoint Online can help users across Sheridan easily achieve their cloud-based, collaborative workspace needs. Featuring a modern and accessible interface, users can painlessly manage their Office 365 Group memberships. And with the self-serve design and administration features of a SharePoint Online Team Site, any novice SharePoint user can become a SharePoint power user.
