Retirement for InfoPath Forms

The InfoPath forms on SharePoint which we have used from long time for creating the interactive forms are getting retired. Microsoft has decided that they are retiring InfoPath and investing in new forms technology across SharePoint, Access, and Word.

Few important points to understand with this are:
1. InfoPath Forms Services in SharePoint Server 2013 is the last release of the InfoPath Form Service. Also the InfoPath 2013 is the last release for the Desktop version.
2. Microsoft will release a detailed migration strategy going forward.
3. The support for InfoPath 2013 desktop client and InfoPath Forms Services for SharePoint Server 2013 will continue through 2023.

The above information should be taken into account if you are planning significant investment in InfoPath forms.
