Microsoft released SharePoint Embedded into public preview. This release aims to offer a fresh approach to building custom content applications tailored for both enterprises and independent software vendors (ISVs).

This feature enables the development of headless content applications that can integrate various management functionalities, such as collaboration, security and compliance, into each application.

Enterprises can use SharePoint Embedded to create business applications, offering a unified experience for both users and the system administrators who manage those applications.

Similarly, ISVs can use this technology to incorporate Microsoft 365 content management capabilities into any enterprise application they develop.

With SharePoint Embedded, documents are managed within the customer’s Microsoft 365 tenant, providing a consistent content management system with global security and compliance features.

SharePoint Embedded serves as a versatile platform intended for utilization by both Microsoft’s in-house products and third-party applications developed by any developer. This information is detailed in a blog post by the company, which outlines the comprehensive list of features in SharePoint Embedded.

Notably, Microsoft Loop and Microsoft Designer, two recently introduced apps, harness the capabilities of SharePoint Embedded. The platform is constructed on the same stack as SharePoint and OneDrive, distinguishing itself through its remarkable scalability, performance, and aptness for hyperscale use cases.

Integration of sophisticated Microsoft 365 security and compliance features, such as audit, eDiscovery, Bring Your Own Key, and others, is facilitated for developers. Additionally, the platform allows for the utilization of Microsoft 365 business continuity capabilities, encompassing autoscaling, high availability, Microsoft 365 Backup, Microsoft 365 Archive, and disaster recovery.

Furthermore, developers have the capability to integrate Microsoft 365 collaboration features into their applications, including co authoring in Word or PowerPoint. They can also embed trusted content management functionalities such as search, content preview, and version tracking. Additionally, the platform allows for the customization of user experiences, providing complete control over security, lifecycle, and management aspects.
