Full Description

 Module 1: Introducing SharePoint Server 2013

Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 is a document storage and collaboration platform that offers many benefits to organizations. SharePoint deployments may take many different forms in scope, where a deployment may be focused on only delivering one feature, such as enterprise search, or many features, such as document management, business intelligence, web content management, and workflows. Deployments can also differ greatly in size, with small deployments of a single server up to large deployments with farms of 15 or more servers. In this module, you will learn about the core features of SharePoint 2013, the new features in this version, and what has been removed. You will also learn about the basic structural elements of a farm deployment and how they fit together. Finally you will learn about the different deployment options available to SharePoint 2013.

Module 2: Designing an Information Architecture

Information architecture (IA) defines the structures by which an organization catalogues information. Designing an IA requires a detailed understanding of the information held in an organization and its usage, context, volatility, and governance. A good IA rationalizes the creation and storage of content and streamlines its surfacing and use. IA design should be platform-neutral, but it must also be driven by the functionality of its environment. Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 provides a rich and functional platform for the development and implementation of efficient and effective IA structures. The integral use of metadata throughout SharePoint 2013 means that an IA designer has a range of storage, navigation, and retrieval options to maximize usability in a well-structured IA. In this module, you will learn about the core elements of IA design and the facilities and devices available in SharePoint 2013 to deploy an effective information management solution.

Module 10: Securing a SharePoint 2013 Deployment

Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 is not just a group of websites―it is also a site-provisioning engine for intranets, extranets, and Internet sites, a collection of databases, an application platform, and a platform for collaboration and social features, as well as being many other things. In addition to it touching your network, it also touches your line-of-business (LOB) applications and Microsoft Active Directory; therefore, it has a large attack surface to consider and protect. SharePoint 2013 is supplied with several security features and tools out-of-the-box to help you secure it. In this module, you will learn how to secure and harden your SharePoint 2013 farm deployment and how to configure several security settings at the farm level.

Module 11: Managing Taxonomy

In order to organize information and make that information easier to find and work with, you can label or categorize information. With files and items in Microsoft SharePoint, you can apply metadata, which could be a category, a classification, or a tag, in order to organize your content and make it easier to work with. In most organizations, the most effective way to implement metadata is through a defined taxonomy that you have standardized through stakeholder input. This enables users to select metadata terms from a predefined list, which provides standard results. Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 can further enhance the application of metadata by using content types. Organizations can use content types to standardize specific types of files, documents, or list items and include metadata requirements, document templates, retention settings, and workflow directly.


  1.  Managing Content Types
  2.  Understanding Term Stores and Term Sets
  3.  Managing Term Stores and Term Sets

  •  Configure the Managed Metadata Service and supporting components.


Module 12: Configuring User Profiles

Social computing environments enable organizations to quickly identify colleagues, team members, and others with similar roles or requirements in an organization. Social features in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 enable users to quickly gain updates and insight into how other members of the organization are working and what information or processes people are developing, along with the progress being achieved. The SharePoint 2013 social platform is based around the capabilities provided by the user profile service application, supported by other services, such as the Managed Metadata Service and the Search service. The User Profile Service provides configuration and control over importing profile data, creating My Sites, managing audiences, and users can utilize these features.


  1.  Configuring the User Profile Service Application
  2.  Managing User Profiles and Audiences

Lab : Configuring User Profiles

After completing this module, you will be able to:

  •  Plan for and configure user profile synchronization with Active Directory Domain Services.
  •  Plan for and configure My Sites and audiences.


Module 13: Configuring Enterprise Search

Search has been a cornerstone of Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies since SharePoint Portal Server 2003. Since those early days, the architecture of the search service has evolved through the Shared Service Provider architecture to the service application architecture of SharePoint Server 2010. It has also grown with the addition of FAST technologies. SharePoint Server 2013 continues this growth by re-architecting the service and integrating many of the components that were intrinsic to FAST Search to deliver a more robust and richer experience for IT staff and users. In this module, you will learn about the new architecture of the Search service, how to configure the key components of search, and how to manage search functionality in your organization.
