SharePoint Information Organization
Sahil Malik: Hello, everyone. My name is Sahil Malik. In this video I will be talking about how SharePoint organizes its information. While we go through this exercise, I will show you how you can do everything in a tool called, "PowerShell. " This is not a PowerShell course by any means. It's not even a SharePoint PowerShell course, but the only purpose of this is to demonstrate that there are things you can do in central administration by hand, and also you can do them in PowerShell. And I'll be showing you vis-�-vis both of those together. But the purpose of this particular video is that I'll be demonstrating how SharePoint organizes its information in web applications, content databases, and so on, so forth. So before watching this video, you should already have some familiarity with SharePoint as in using SharePoint from a user's point of view. You should be familiar with the architecture and major parts of SharePoint and things such as manage services. And you shall be familiar with central administration, specifically about the application management section. These are things that I had colored in the previous video. In this video, I'm going to talk further where I had left in the previous video, as in we're going to talk about how SharePoint organizes its information, forms of application, and get a little bit more of a hands-on perspective to that.
