Back to Basics - The Fundamentals of SharePoint Administration
Chaos in SharePoint administration stems from having limited or no control of your environment. There are no quotas, rules for site creation or security. Plus, there’s no rhyme or reason to permissions and support is limited or nonexistent.

We’ll review the goals of a successful administration plan, provide you with prescriptive guidance to achieve them and describe native and third-party tools that can help you implement your strategy with ease.

Streamlining Application Deployment with No Coding
If you have no defined SharePoint development lifecycle or process for creating services for end users on this platform, then you’re living in chaos. This means IT administrators struggle to make heads or tails out of the bits of code and web parts being thrown at them. Plus, they don’t know how to build what end users need much less how to support what’s built going forward. Learn how to streamline your application deployment process by defining a comprehensive development lifecycle. This lifecycle will minimize confusion as new applications are built as well as ensure that they can be supported in the future. We’ll discuss the elements to include in your lifecycle and show you native and third-party tools that that handle the coding for you. The result: You’ll be able to easily build professional solutions that meet your users’ needs.
