This is a live blog, posted rapidly to IT Unity's Ignite Live Blog. Details will be added to this post as they become available.
Sesha Mani's presentation included this very important slide summarizing Microsoft's journey to better and more seamless hybrid support. While the title of the slide says “Hybrid OneDrive” I believe this is really “Hybrid SharePoint” (just a slide error).
As you'll see, there are a lot of announcements today about hybrid SharePoint—supported in the very near future for SharePoint 2013. I'm waiting to get specifics about exactly when these “announcements” will translate into “releases” but they are big announcements, for sure.
The long-term roadmap had a few surprises. Honestly, I believe Microsoft may be erring to the over-transparent here. I applaud the fact that they're sharing their priorities with us. It demonstrates they hear our requests for that transparency and roadmap, and also shows that they're hearing our screams of pain about these issues, in particular. But the community should give Microsoft room to adjust their priorities. 2016 is a long way away. Things will change, if history is any guide.
