Module 2: Designing an Information Architecture

Information architecture (IA) defines the structures by which an organization catalogs information. Designing an IA requires a detailed understanding of not only the information held in an organization but also the usage, context, volatility, and governance of the information. 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 Server 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 Server 2013 to deploy an effective information management solution.

  • Explain the importance of documentation and describe the options for documenting logical architecture.
Module 4: Designing a Physical Architecture

When you design a Microsoft SharePoint 2013 deployment, you must carefully consider the hardware and farm topology requirements. Your choices of server hardware and the number of servers that you specify for the farm can have a significant impact on how the farm meets user requirements, how users perceive the SharePoint solution, and how long before the farm requires additional hardware.

This module describes the factors that you should consider when you design the physical architecture of a SharePoint 2013 deployment. The physical architecture refers to the server design, farm topology, and supporting elements - such as network infrastructure - for your deployment. This physical architecture underpins the operations of your SharePoint 2013 environment, so it is essential that your physical design fully meets the operational requirements.

  • Designing Physical Components for SharePoint Deployments

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.

  • Managing Content Types
  • Understanding Term Stores and Term Sets
  • Managing Term Stores and Term Sets

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe the function of content types and explain how to apply them to business requirements.
  • Describe the function of managed metadata in SharePoint 2013.
  • 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.

  • Configuring the User Profile Service Application
  • Managing User Profiles and Audiences

After completing this module, students 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.

  • Understanding the Search Service Architecture
  • Configuring Enterprise Search
  • Managing Enterprise Search

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe the core architecture of the Search service and its supported topologies.
  • Explain the steps required to configure the Search service in an enterprise environment.
  • Describe how to manage and maintain a well-performing Search environment.
Module 14: Monitoring and Maintaining a SharePoint 2013 Environment

Careful planning and configuration alone will not guarantee an effective Microsoft SharePoint 2013 deployment. To keep your SharePoint 2013 deployment performing well, you need to plan and conduct ongoing monitoring, maintenance, optimization, and troubleshooting. In this module, you will learn how to plan and configure monitoring in a SharePoint 2013 server farm, and how to tune and optimize the performance of your farm on an ongoing basis. You will also learn how to use a range of tools and techniques to troubleshoot unexpected problems in your SharePoint 2013 deployments.

Module 2: Designing for Business Continuity Management

This module examine high availability and disaster recovery in SharePoint 2013. When designing high availability and disaster recovery strategies for a SharePoint farm, it is important to understand the different approaches required by each logical tier in the farm. High availability for the database tier requires understanding of how SQL Server provides high availability and the associated requirements. High availability for the application tier can be straightforward for some service applications, while other applications, such as Search, require additional planning and configuration for high availability. The web front end tier will also require additional planning and configuration for high availability, and architects should consider the new SharePoint 2013 request management feature. SharePoint farm disaster recovery has always required considerable planning and understanding of the necessary components and backup tools available. In this regard SharePoint 2013 is no different, and farm administrators should create a disaster recovery plan that states how content and configurations are backed up, how data can be restored, and what backup schedules are required.

  • Designing Database Topologies for High Availability and Disaster Recovery
  • Designing SharePoint Infrastructure for High Availability
  • Planning for Disaster Recovery

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Select an appropriate database server configuration to meet availability requirements.

  • Develop and implement a backup and restore strategy.
Module 3: Test the Backup and Restore Process

Service applications were introduced in SharePoint 2010, replacing the Shared Service Provider architecture of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Service applications provide a flexible design for delivering services, such as Managed Metadata or PerformancePoint, to users who need them. There are several deployment topologies available to you when you plan your service application implementation. These range from a simple, single-farm, single-instance service application model to more complex, cross-farm, multiple-instance designs. What remains most important is that you create a design that matches the needs of your organization's users in terms of performance, functionality, and security.

This module reviews the service application architecture, how to map business requirements to design, and the options for enterprise scale, federated service application architectures.

  • Planning Service Applications

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Explain the service application architecture.
  • Describe the fundamental options of service application design.
  • Describe how to configure a federated service application deployment.
Module 4: Configuring and Managing Business Connectivity Services

Most organizations store information in a variety of disparate systems. In many cases, these organizations want to be able to view and interact with information from these disparate systems from a single interface. This reduces the need for information workers to constantly switch between systems and creates opportunities for power users or analysts to aggregate data from multiple sources.

In SharePoint 2013, Business Connectivity Services (BCS) is a collection of technologies that enable you to query, view, and interact with data from external systems. In this module, you will learn how to plan and configure various components of BCS.

  • Planning and Configuring Business Connectivity Services
  • Configuring the Secure Store Service
  • Managing Business Data Connectivity Models

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Plan and configure the Business Data Connectivity Service application.
  • Plan and configure the Secure Store Service application.
  • Manage Business Data Connectivity models.
Module 5: Connecting People

When we talk about connecting people in SharePoint 2013 we are really talking about taking people out of their isolated workspaces and giving them the ability and tools to collaborate with other people in the organization such as their work colleagues, peers and executives. It is about finding people with expertise and identifying shared interests and about creating networks of people that share common goals.

In this module, you will learn about the concepts and ways of connecting people in SharePoint 2013. We will examine user profiles and user profile synchronization, social interaction features and capabilities, and communities and community sites in SharePoint 2013.

  • Describe how to plan and use workflows in SharePoint 2013.
Module 7: Planning and Configuring Business intelligence

Business Intelligence (BI) continues to be an important area for large enterprise organizations. The key to successful BI is the ability to integrate the components that deliver the right information, to the right people, at the right time. SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise Edition provides a range of integrated solutions that enable both users and administrators across an organization to develop BI solutions to fit their business requirements. These BI tools extend beyond SharePoint to provide consistent information management from personal data analysis environments, which use Office Excel, through to departmental or organizational data repositories, which use SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) and SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS).

In this module you will see how SharePoint 2013 can deliver BI solutions for your business.

Module 8: Planning and Configuring Enterprise Search

The Search service remains a cornerstone of the SharePoint platform's success. In SharePoint 2013 there have been major changes to the components that make up the service, to increase performance and configurability.

The configuration options in SharePoint Search now enable you to provide greater search result effectiveness by fine-tuning the service in various ways. The introduction of new functionality, such as result types and the increased move towards search-driven navigation mean that the role of the Search administrator has become even more important for business success. Search now enables you to delegate more of this management to site collection administrator and site owner levels, improving Search flexibility without increasing the administrative burden on a few Search service application administrators.

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.

  • Configuring Search for an Enterprise Environment
  • Configuring the Search Experience
  • Optimizing Search

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe the Search service architecture and key areas of configuration.
  • Explain how to configure the Search service to improve the end-user experience.
  • Describe how to use analytics reports to optimize your Search environment.
Module 9: Planning and Configuring Enterprise Content Management

Enterprise content management (ECM) is a set of technologies and features that administrators use to provide some control over sites and content. This could include control over how information is stored, how long information is kept, how information is visible to users while in use, and how information growth is kept under control.

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.

  • Planning Content Management
  • Planning and Configuring eDiscovery
  • Planning Records Management

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Plan how to manage content and documents.
  • Plan and configure eDiscovery.
  • Plan records management and compliance.
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.

  • Planning and Implementing a Web Content Management Infrastructure
  • Configuring Managed Navigation and Catalog Sites
  • Supporting Multiple Languages and Locales

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.

  • Understanding the SharePoint Solution Architecture
  • Managing Sandbox Solutions

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe and manage SharePoint features and solutions
  • Manage sandboxed solutions in a SharePoint 2013 deployment
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.

  • Understanding the SharePoint App Architecture
  • Provisioning and Managing Apps and App Catalogs

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe SharePoint apps and the supporting SharePoint infrastructure
  • Provision and configure SharePoint apps and app catalogs
  • Manage how apps are used within a SharePoint 2013 deployment
Module 13: Developing a Governance Plan

Governance as it relates to SharePoint can be described as a way of controlling a SharePoint environment through the application of people, policies, and processes. Governance is necessary for all IT systems as a whole, and in particular for SharePoint deployments, which often introduce significant change in business processes, available functionality, and day-to-day working practices.

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.

  • Introduction to Governance Planning
  • Key Elements of a Governance Plan
  • Planning for Governance in SharePoint Server 2013
  • Implementing Governance in SharePoint 2013

  • Describe the concepts of governance
  • Describe the key elements of a governance plan
  • Plan for governance in SharePoint Server 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.

In contrast with earlier version of SharePoint, SharePoint 2013 supports only database-attach upgrades for content, but now supports upgrades for some of the databases associated with service applications. You need to plan for these and ensure that you are prepared for any troubleshooting that may be required.

Another change in SharePoint 2013 is the approach to upgrading site collections. These are upgraded separately from the data and service applications. You can also delegate the upgrade tasks to site collection administrators.

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

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe how to plan and prepare for your upgrade.
  • Explain the steps involved in data and service application upgrades.
  • Describe the process for upgrading site collections.
