In mid-2015, SharePoint and Office 365 consulting company Rencore conducted a survey to find out the state of Office 365 and SharePoint development in 2015. IT Unity helped promote the survey and we’re pleased to help Rencore share the results with the community. Given that Rencore didn’t have a huge list of names of developers to send the survey to, we were happy to help them get the word out. We’re also very interested in knowing more about the SharePoint and Office 365 development community.
Some of the questions asked in the initial survey concerning the success with internal customizations didn’t gather enough responses to be included in the final report. That’s regrettable but understandable that developers should not comment on their company’s internal success (or lack of success with some efforts) without going through proper channels.
Some interesting highlights from this survey:
- Over 90% of companies use jQuery in SharePoint development; 43% are using Angular.js
- Over 40% of organizations uses manual SharePoint governance processes
- Lots of respondents participate pretty actively in the SharePoint community and have for years.
We think you’ll gain some insight about our active community by reading the survey yourself, so follow this link, sign up, and then download the PDF. Perhaps you can offer your feedback if Rencore conducts another survey in the future.
As a bonus, the survey includes interviews with Jeremy Thake, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Office 365, and Tobias Zimmergren, a Microsoft MVP at Rencore.
