On 11 April 2023 Microsoft officially ended support for Exchange Server 2013 and SharePoint 2013. This means there will be no more security updates, bug fixes, or technical support from Microsoft. Although both software applications will remain fully functional, won’t be deactivated, and still can be used for daily work, further continuing to use these platforms can pose security risks and reduce productivity and compatibility with newer software.
Now is the ideal time to upgrade to the latest versions of Exchange Server and SharePoint Server. This way, your company can ensure the security and efficiency of your communication and collaboration tools. Customers can choose from several options for perpetual products within the Microsoft ecosystem:

SharePoint Server 2016
SharePoint Server 2016 includes improved search capabilities, mobile support, and hybrid functionality that allows companies to take advantage of both on-premises and cloud-based services. It is a versatile and robust collaboration tool that can help improve productivity and efficiency in every organization.
SharePoint Server 2019
SharePoint Server 2019 is the latest version of Microsoft’s powerful collaboration platform, designed to help organizations share and manage content, work together effectively, and make better decisions. The platform includes new and improved features such as modern site templates, enhanced teamwork capabilities, and streamlined site creation and management.
Thinking about moving to the cloud? Consider a hybrid solution!
For some companies, perpetual on-premise solutions for Exchange and SharePoint can be replaced by cloud services, however a full transition to the cloud may not be the most cost-effective solution for the majority of businesses. In order to avoid unnecessary annual expenses, a combination of subscription and perpetual licenses is highly recommended. This kind of hybrid solution can be achieved with a perpetual license for MS Office (for desktop apps, like MS Outlook) and a subscription for Exchange Online and SharePoint Online (via Microsoft 365 Business Basic).
