Is Microsoft OneDrive Bouncing Back?

Over time, OneDrive has improved, and its consumer version is now equal to both of its significant rivals. But OneDrive for Business, the commercial version, has struggled to keep pace for several fundamental reasons. The main reason is that it didn’t do an excellent job of syncing files and that it relied on aging SharePoint legacy infrastructure, which wasn’t designed for the cloud. In 2016 Microsoft went as far as to state that OneDrive wasn’t for sharing files at all: that job was for a SharePoint team site. Twelve years on from the first OneDrive release, Box and Dropbox have both had IPOs and now provide file-sharing services to 350,000 businesses between them. At Deep Analysis, our question is whether all that is about is to change. Is OneDrive for Business finally ready for prime time?
