Microsoft Syntex transforms to SharePoint Premium

In an exciting development for content management, Microsoft has announced the integration of Microsoft Syntex into SharePoint Premium. This strategic move marries the advanced AI-powered content processing strengths of Microsoft Syntex with the comprehensive capabilities of SharePoint Premium.

This integration marks a significant step in elevating productivity and streamlining content management processes. By combining Syntex’s cutting-edge AI-driven features with the robustness of SharePoint’s platform, a formidable solution for handling and processing extensive volumes of content is born.

The fusion of these two platforms was officially unveiled at the Microsoft Ignite conference on November 15, 2023. With this merger, the functionalities previously unique to Syntex, including SharePoint advanced management features, will be smoothly transitioned into SharePoint Premium. This integration not only consolidates their strengths but also paves the way for introducing new content experiences, substantially broadening the scope and efficiency of SharePoint Premium.

SharePoint Premium's Advanced Content Experiences and Solutions
Support for Over 400 File Types:

SharePoint Premium is set to expand the capabilities of Office collaboration into a versatile file viewer supporting a vast array of over 400 file types. This enhancement means you’ll soon do much more than just viewing files. You’ll be able to annotate, sketch, tag colleagues, and assign tasks across various file formats, mirroring the functionality you’re accustomed to with standard Office documents.

Business Documents App in Microsoft Teams:

The launch of the Business Documents app within Microsoft Teams marks a significant stride in managing complex documents. This app simplifies the management process, offering a centralized view of all essential documents, such as contracts, statements of work, orders, and invoices, streamlining the management of these critical business assets.

AI-Driven Contract Management Tools:

Building on the familiar process of creating contracts in Word with templates, SharePoint Premium introduces an AI-driven rules deviation engine. This tool scrutinizes contracts against similar ones to quickly identify and highlight discrepancies or potential concerns. Additionally, a new clause analyzer uses AI to examine large volumes of documents, pinpointing and simplifying contracts that pose potential risks and require immediate attention.

Customizable Document Portal:

The newly developed Document Portal in SharePoint Premium offers a customizable, user-friendly website that aligns with your organization’s branding. It integrates seamlessly with both consumer and organizational identities, facilitating secure collaboration on specific documents with external parties like suppliers, vendors, and customers.

SharePoint eSignature:

A standout feature arriving in early 2024, SharePoint eSignature, will digitize the process of document approvals with enhanced security. It will initially be available in the United States and includes integration capabilities with Adobe and DocuSign for a comprehensive e-signature solution.

Pay-As-You-Go Services:

Prepare for a suite of new services including translation for Stream videos within SharePoint, AI-enhanced video editing to remove pauses and filters, and the conversion of files and video transcripts across multiple languages. These services are designed to be accessible and user-friendly.

Upcoming Features for the First Half of 2024:

Autofill Columns: AI will dynamically populate new columns in document libraries, streamlining data entry.

PII Detection: An automated tool for identifying sensitive information like addresses and credit card numbers in documents.

Multilabel Classifier: AI will categorize your files, choosing the right content type for comprehensive data analysis and extraction.

Redaction Tool: This feature will allow for the concealment of sensitive details such as names and addresses in documents, enhancing privacy and security.

The Future Landscape with SharePoint Premium

The roadmap for SharePoint Premium is filled with exciting prospects that will redefine content management. Its seamless integration with Office collaboration tools, comprehensive support for a wide array of file types, and innovative features like the Business Documents app in Teams are set to revolutionize the user experience. These enhancements are not just about improving functionality; they bring actionable insights into the management of crucial business documents.

Pioneering Content Governance in the SharePoint Premium Era

SharePoint Premium takes governance to the next level. The platform equips content creators and managers with advanced tools like Data Access Governance (DAG) insights and AI-driven policy recommendations. This advanced governance is essential for managing content effectively throughout its lifecycle, ensuring both security and compliance.

Expanding SharePoint Premium's Capabilities

Looking beyond the core functionalities, SharePoint Premium is set to introduce a range of new services and features:

  • Advanced AI Capabilities: The platform will utilize AI to offer more intuitive and smarter content management. This includes AI-driven content creation, advanced analytics, and predictive insights that can transform how organizations interact with their content.
  • Seamless Integration and User Experience: SharePoint Premium is designed to provide a seamless user experience, integrating effortlessly with various Microsoft 365 applications and third-party tools. This integration ensures that users have a consistent and unified experience across all their business applications.
  • Customization and Extensibility: As a consultant, I appreciate SharePoint Premium’s focus on customization and extensibility. The platform will offer enhanced capabilities for developing custom solutions, including new APIs and development tools that allow businesses to tailor SharePoint to their specific needs.
In Conclusion: SharePoint Premium as the Future of Content Management

As we embark on this new era with SharePoint Premium, my role as a consultant involves not only understanding these advanced features but also guiding businesses in leveraging them to their fullest potential. SharePoint Premium represents more than a technological leap; it is a strategic asset for any organization aiming to manage content more intelligently, securely, and efficiently. The future of digital workplaces is being shaped by the tools and innovations offered by SharePoint Premium, and I am excited to be part of this transformative journey.
