Microsoft introduced Microsoft SharePoint (classic variant) in 2001. It has provided a large part of the business community with a powerful collaboration platform for over 20 years.
With the introduction of Modern SharePoint, Microsoft has given SharePoint a major upgrade with SharePoint Services. This upgrade is based on a completely new architecture. We have listed the most important benefits for you:
Responsive : the information displayed automatically scales to the screen size of each device (laptop, tablet or smartphone). Moreover, you have access to all functionality from any device.
Look & feel : The appearance looks modern, fresh and user-friendly. You can also easily apply your own house style (colors and logo).
Improved architecture : better performance, faster and lazy load (displaying web parts when scrolling).
Intuitive to use : It offers you a modern experience and allows you to easily and quickly build a good looking intranet page or collaboration environment with the desired look & feel by the editor himself. Because of the user-friendly functionality and modern look & feel, users work pleasantly and quickly with Modern SharePoint. It therefore has a high adoption rate.
Hub sites : Modern SharePoint allows you to turn a communication site or a team site into a hub site.

Do you want to make the switch from Classic to Modern?
The switch from Classic to Modern requires good preparation. You don’t just ‘just’ switch over. It requires a new design of SharePoint.
But this is a great opportunity to realize a future-proof and user-friendly collaboration platform that fully meets the current wishes and requirements of your users with SharePoint Services. Modern SharePoint supports your employees to be able to work (together) anytime, anywhere and regardless of location. It is fully in line with our new way of hybrid working.
