    The Cloud Should Not Kill On-Premises SharePoint
    Over the past year or so there was a lot of talk about SharePoint being a “dying platform” based on the fact that Microsoft was really pushing cloud-first and mobile strategies.  After reading Benjamin Niaulin’s blog post in response to Julia White’s blogpost on the release of SharePoint Server 2016 I have to say that I concur with many of hi...
