The State of SharePoint and Office 365 Development – our survey winners!

3 min read

If you read our blog or follow us on Twitter or LinkedIn, you’ll know that we released our State of SharePoint and Office 365 Development survey back in June. The reason? Simply, we wanted to find out how IT-Pros are working within SharePoint and Office 365, what tools architects are using, and how developers are customizing both SP and O365. We’re delighted to say that the results have been extremely interesting, and we’ve gathered some really valuable information about the SharePoint and Office 365 development community.

First of all, a massive thankyou to everyone that took the time to fill out our survey. Over 1,000 people participated – which is fantastic – and we’ve learned an awful lot already about the people who use SP and O365. We wanted this survey to paint a comprehensive picture of how developers and IT-Pros are spending their time with the multitude of facets at their disposal with Office 365 and SharePoint.

We’ll be releasing the results of our SharePoint and Office 365 development survey over the coming couple of weeks via the blog with some posts and infographics, so stay tuned to see where your habits lay in comparison to the rest of the community. However, to whet your appetite with a couple of noticeable stats, we can say that Consultancy business’ were way out in front in terms of types of organizations that completed the survey with 49%, and every 3 out of 4 SharePoint deployments were located On-Premises, meaning the cloud still has some ground to make up to tackle the top spot.

Thanks also have to go to SharePoint Europe, for both their sponsorship and including a 3-day pass to their annual SharePoint Conference in Sweden as a prize.
