  • Enabling Social Interaction
  • Building Communities
  • Module 6: Enabling Productivity and Collaboration

    This module examines how SharePoint 2013 extends the ability of users to work collaboratively and increase productivity through seamless integration with external software platforms, additional SharePoint collaboration features, and the provision of flexible tools, with which users can develop their own solutions to business problems.

    To help you in your management of a Search environment, SharePoint 2013 now incorporates Search analytics and reporting into the Search service, rather than in a separate service application, as was the case in SharePoint Server 2010. The reports available will help you to monitor the service and optimize its configuration.

    Lessons

  • Configuring Search for an Enterprise Environment
  • Configuring the Search Experience
  • Optimizing Search
  • Module 9: Planning and Configuring Enterprise Content Management

    Planning support for your ECM requirements requires a clear understanding of content requirements and how that content supports the organization. This means that, as a best practice, many different organizational roles should have input into the ECM strategy and supporting features.

    Lessons

  • Planning Content Management
  • Planning and Configuring eDiscovery
  • Planning Records Management
  • Module 10: Planning and Configuring Web Content Management

    The web content management capabilities in SharePoint Server 2013 can help an organization to communicate and integrate more effectively with employees, partners, and customers. SharePoint Server 2013 provides easy-to-use functionality to create, approve, and publish web content. This enables you to get information out quickly to intranet, extranet, and Internet sites and give your content a consistent look and feel. You can use these web content management capabilities to create, publish, manage, and control a large and dynamic collection of content. As part of ECM in SharePoint Server 2013, web content management can help to streamline your process for creating and publishing web sites.

  • Module 11: Managing Solutions in SharePoint Server 2013

    As a SharePoint administrator, it is important to understand the features that are available in SharePoint 2013. However, there are often specific functional requirements that may be part of SharePoint’s feature set but are not included in certain site templates. There may also be sites that require repeatable customization of lists or libraries, or custom code deployments that are necessary to add capabilities that are not available out-of-the-box. Developers use features and solutions to add and control these functionality requirements. Administrators, on the other hand, must understand how features and solutions are deployed and managed in order to meet user needs in a SharePoint farm.

    Lessons

  • Understanding the SharePoint Solution Architecture
  • Managing Sandbox Solutions
  • Module 12: Managing Apps for SharePoint Server 2013

    SharePoint apps are new to SharePoint 2013 and provide an additional capability to provide application functionality within the context of SharePoint. SharePoint apps supplement the capabilities of farm solutions and sandbox solutions, while providing a user experience that offers a measure of self-service customization capabilities without putting the stability or security of the farm at risk.

    Lessons

  • Understanding the SharePoint App Architecture
  • Provisioning and Managing Apps and App Catalogs
  • Module 13: Developing a Governance Plan

    It is important to understand that governance must reflect the needs of the organization and how it should best use SharePoint. Therefore, the IT department cannot be the only body governing SharePoint; input must come from corporate sponsorship across the organization. The IT department must still act as the technical authority for SharePoint; however, this is just a single part of how SharePoint governance must be brought together from different parts of the organization.

    Lessons

  • Introduction to Governance Planning
  • Key Elements of a Governance Plan
  • Planning for Governance in SharePoint Server 2013
  • Implementing Governance in SharePoint 2013
  • Module 14: Upgrading and Migrating to SharePoint Server 2013

    Upgrading your SharePoint Server 2010 farm(s) to SharePoint 2013 is a major undertaking, so it is important that you carefully plan the upgrade activities. You need to ensure that your upgrade path—moving from version to version—is supported, that you have reviewed the business impact of your upgrade, and that you test your upgrade strategy to ensure business continuity. As with all such activities, preparation is crucial.

    Lessons

  • Preparing Upgrade or Migration Environment
  • Performing the Upgrade Process
  • Managing Site Collection Upgrade
