Majority of the users are looking for SharePoint with hybrid capabilities. There is a drastic rise in the IT investment in SharePoint employee portals over the last few years as enterprises are looking to engage with employees from a central location. Microsoft is taking a next huge step by encouraging their customers to shift to the cloud and consolidating numerous on-premises SharePoint servers into a single cloud instance. Most of the companies have improvised their SharePoint assimilation because of continuous customer requests, and have included features for transactional capabilities. Previously, Microsoft had underrated the value of hybrid SharePoint and today with the new edition being launched; they will make the hybrid solutions easier. Enterprises have various reasons for shifting to hybrid, and instead of forcing organizations to the cloud before they are ready, Microsoft is supporting by providing a set of scenarios that will allow companies to get familiar with the newest features but continue to benefit from existing infrastructure investments.
