An IT Pro Guide to Deploying and Managing SharePoint 2013 apps

As a SharePoint administrator managing an on-premises environment, building and managing environments to support 2013 apps is far from trivial. In this IT-Pro centric topic, we’ll bypass all of the developer ballyhoo and hone in on what matters most to you. Topics will include provisioning service applications and an app catalog; understanding how DNS name resolution and SSL works; understanding the app model’s security strengths and weaknesses; and developing governance policies to ensure you can properly manage and control these next-generation solutions.

Learn about:

  • Provisioning support for 2013 apps
  • Using the app catalog
  • Managing SharePoint 2013 apps
