SharePoint is one the most successful products in Microsoft's history. It can be found in small businesses, universities, and Fortune 500 companies. SharePoint 2010, the latest release, contains many new areas for existing and new SharePoint server administrators and site administrators. This book will help you meet the new challenges SharePoint administrators face in their day to day deals with the product.
Existing SharePoint administrators will find there are a lot of changes in SharePoint 2010 with which they may not be very familiar. One of the major changes covered extensively is the move away from a single farm Shared Service Provider to a system of Service Applications which need to be configured and managed. For example Access Services, new to SharePoint with this release will allow your users to actually convert Access 2010 databases to run within the browser hosted by SharePoint.
Our intention in writing this book was to help you with what is, being honest, a complicated bit of Software to manage and one of the main requirements required with SharePoint is patience when things don't work out as expected! This book is there to guide you, to provide help when you need it. Each lesson looks at one particular area of administration giving you the tools and information to get a service up and running. Video files accompany each lesson, extending the information given in the book with real world experience and useful tips.
