Part 3 of 3 in the SharePoint Server 2013 Core Solutions (70-331) series covers a range of topics including the installation and management of SharePoint 2013, PowerShell, data management, and more. This course is designed for those who already have a basic understanding of SharePoint, Windows administration, and Active Directory concepts.
SharePoint Search Search is absolutely critical to a successful SharePoint deployment and that's what we want to start to take a look at over the next series of lessons is SharePoint search. What we're going to start off with in this lesson is the basics of SharePoint search, the behind the scenes components and moving parts that are all going to come together to give us that search implementation and we're going to finish it off with a real quick demo of how to go in and create our search service application. Now don't worry, we are going to get in a little bit later taking a look at how to configure SharePoint search on both the back end as well as on the front end and how we can help customize the experience that our users are going to see with search.
Managing SharePoint Content As we've seen and discussed several times, SharePoint is, of course, a portal to allow your users to have access to data. Now one of the big keys to making sure that our SharePoint deployment is going to be successful is ensuring that our users can easily find the information that they're looking for. Now we've already seen a couple of different ways we can do this through managing search. Now, what we want to do is turn our attention to how we can manage this in a couple of other ways. Then we're going to take a look at how we can enable some relatively advanced navigation to make sure that our users can easily find the information that they're looking for; how we can create content types to ensure that our data has a consistent structure; and then also how we can take data from one centralized location and publish it out to multiple SharePoint sites.
