How hub sites are different from Communication sites. For which purpose we can recommend to our clients about HUB Sites
10 Replies

Solution
Hub sites are a way to organize and link together multiple sites. When you create the hub, you get to specify which site is the home of the hub -- we do recommend as a best practice using a communication site for that purpose, since it will do a great job of highlighting news, activity and content from across the hub. Don't think of "hub site" as a new type of site or new template.

Comm sites can be hubs! Think of a hub as a designation that gives a site superpowers. After making a site a hub, content from associated sites rolls up to it, search scope includes associated sites, branding and navigation are shared with associated sites. I expect we will see most hubs are comm sites, as comm sites are all about reaching a broader audience.

Client says that hub sites are similar to site collection so what speciality and how exactly they differ from Site collection?
Highlighted

I think of Hub sites as a way of making it easier to organize the sprawl of sites that get created by adding common theming, search, and navigation across all sites that belong to a hub. So for your customers this could be a way to make it easier to link sites that have common goals, such as sites for HR initiatives.

Hub sites sounds like a site collection and same can be done using site collection What exactly the sharepoint hub sites potential to recommend to client
Highlighted

In a literal sense they are a collection of sites but each site that is joined to a hub is itself a site collection. So each site has its own security and isolated content. The hub allows pieces to be shared across the members.

Be sure to check out the latest documentation: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/what-is-a-sharepoint-hub-site-fe26ae84-14b7-45b6-a6d1-948b3... (we'll also have more guidance/planning materials coming).

Just told to client who extensively uses sharepoint. He told sharepoint hub sites are like dumb nothing new. If it is collection of sites what is special again ? In classic terminologies we call it as Site collection and In new terminology we are calling as Hub. Sounds bad. Need more detailed thing how it really works and how client can use it and how it saves his time.
All these are very important

there are some key differences.  First, hub sites are designed from the start to both push down to associated sites (nav, theme) but also to roll up content (news, sites webpart).  Site collections/subwebs didn't really have great roll up functionality.  Second, hub sites and associated sites are designed for a dynamic, flexible organization, where relationships may change over time, and the association between a site and its hub is a simple link that is easily changed.  Site collections/subwebs were designed as a durable relationship and as you know the product does not make it easy to move subwebs between site collections.  But for now, there are some needs best met by hub sites, and some needs best met by site collection/subwebs, and we'll do our best to make that clear.
