Microsoft recently announced that they will be "retiring" InfoPath:
In an effort to streamline our investments and deliver a more integrated Office forms user experience, we’re retiring InfoPath and investing in new forms technology across SharePoint, Access, and Word. This means that InfoPath 2013 is the last release of the desktop client, and InfoPath Forms Services in SharePoint Server 2013 is the last release of InfoPath Forms Services. The InfoPath Forms Services technology within Office 365 will be maintained and it will function until further notice.
However, some of the additional guidance given in the article seems contradictory to a total break from the product line:
What should I use to build and complete forms?
You should continue to use InfoPath technology.
Will there be a migration tool or process for the next generation of forms technology?
We’ll provide more details on migration scenarios and guidance in Q4 of CY 2014.
So what does everyone think about this? And how should this affect our guidance of clients on this matter?
