So, after leaving 2015 behind us and getting started in 2016 it’s time to have a look what 2016 is going to bring us.
2015 was the year that got the adoption of cloud technology really going and I expect more and more organizations to do so or start adopting more features cloud technology offers us. A very nice feature is that organizations start to understand better how convenient it is when the ‘gate’ for end users has shifted from Active Directory to Azure Active Directory.
Three big releases will most likely take place this year:
- Windows Server 2016;
- System Center 2016.
I strongly believe the release of Windows Server 2016 will dramatically change the way we’re used to work and I really believe the following two features will enable it:
- Nano Server;
Since the release of Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 3, and even more with Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 4 we’re able to research and experiment with these two features. Fortunately, I don’t expect Windows Server 2016 RTM to be released in the first half of 2016. This allows me to play around with it and understand how it works so that I am prepared when it becomes available.
So, Windows Server 2016 is quite a big tip of the iceberg. With the rest all coming as well I expect 2016 to be a very busy year. But I expect to have a lot of fun with it as well…
So let’s see what’s going to happen this year, I look forward to it.
