Sharepoint 200m Users Icon

Microsoft today made an announcement that reveals over 200 million monthly active users of the SharePoint cloud service. This number has doubled in the past year. SharePoint offers content collaboration, document management, content protection, and intelligent content analytics as part of Microsoft 365.

The company states the following.

We have had a bold vision for content collaboration from day one in SharePoint and brought that to many more customers and partners with the broad availability of Microsoft cloud services in 2011. Your feedback and support over the last decade has enabled us to invest in the most flexible cloud content services platform—built on Microsoft Azure and the Microsoft Graph—and deliver many new experiences. In the last year, as the world has pivoted to remote work, organizations of all sizes accelerated their adoption of Microsoft 365 and all of our SharePoint powered experiences to skyrocket—SharePoint sites, Microsoft Teams, OneDrive, Office, custom PowerApps and SPFx apps, and more.

We are privileged to support our customers in this period and humbled to announce SharePoint usage doubled in the last year and passed a new milestone of 200 million monthly active users in the cloud.

And we are not done. Far from it. Over the last few years, we have invested in a new SharePoint storage, platform, and experience architecture deployed across more than 60 regional data centers supporting millions of requests per second and exabytes of data. This new platform is enabling us to deliver innovations to you faster and you will see us bring to market many new SharePoint-powered experiences in collaboration, media, protection, intelligence, custom solutions, and more in 2021.

Microsoft names the COVID-19 pandemic as a driving factor for educators and businesses that have to work remotely, and need a reliable service to access and manage their data.

Microsoft is still actively working on SharePoint. At the end of the post there is a note that Microsoft will bring many new SharePoint-based capabilities to market in the areas of collaboration, media, security, analytics, customized solutions and more in 2021.
