In this chapter, we're going to dig into some of the SharePoint Office service applications. These service applications are not installed or configured by default. Instead, they are used primarily by developers to build automation services for converting and rendering Office-based documents.
We'll cover the following topics:
- Exploring Office service applications
- Enabling Excel Services
- Enabling PowerPoint Automation Services
- Enabling Visio Graphics Service
- Enabling Word Automation Services
By the end of this chapter, you should have an understanding of the basic Office service applications, how they can be used by developers in your organization, and how to prepare them for use.
