Book: Microsoft SharePoint 2013: Designing and Architecting Solutions
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Welcome to Microsoft SharePoint 2013: Designing and Architecting Solutions. The purpose of this book is to help Microsoft SharePoint professionals understand the Microsoft SharePoint 2013 architecture and give them the tools they need to be successful in planning, designing, building, and validating infrastructure architectures. As with previous versions of SharePoint, SharePoint 2013 contains many features with which you will be familiar. Some features have not changed at all; others will have changed, but at a high level, and will provide similar functionality that will not be new to you. However, there are new components that you will need time to understand fully before you can decide how they will benefit you and your organization.
With this version of SharePoint, Microsoft focuses on various implementations whether they exist on premises, in the cloud, or a combination of the two. With the focus now on social collaboration and the ability to share content in a variety of ways, how you build your implementation will define how users can share, organize, discover, build, and manage ideas and content in a SharePoint environment.
