Planning and Administering SharePoint 2016

Session Detail:    Classroom, Virtual 5 Day

This five-day course will provide
you with the knowledge and skills to plan and administer a Microsoft SharePoint
2016 environment. This course will teach you how to plan your SharePoint 2016,
providing guidelines, best practices, and considerations that will help you
optimize your SharePoint deployment. The course will also teach you how to
deploy, administer, and troubleshoot your SharePoint deployment.

This is the first in a sequence
of two courses for IT Professionals and is aligned with the SharePoint Server
2016 IT Pro certification.

Prerequisites

Before attending this course, students must have knowledge of:

  • Software management in a Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2 enterprise server environment.
  • Deploying and managing applications natively, virtually, and in the cloud.
  • Administering IIS.
  • Configuring AD DS for use in authentication, authorization, and as a user store.
  • Managing an application remotely by using Windows PowerShell 4.0.
  • Managing databases and server roles in SQL Server.
  • Connecting applications to SQL Server.
  • Implementing claims-based security.
  • Using Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines.

An ideal candidate for this course must have at least one year of experience with deploying and administering multiple SharePoint 2013 farms across a large enterprise. Because many customers have not upgraded from SharePoint 2010, a candidate can also have at least two years of experience with SharePoint 2010. However, they also must understand the differences between SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013, particularly in terms of hybridization.

Who Can Benefit

The course is targeted at experienced IT professionals who are interested in learning how to install, configure, deploy, and manage SharePoint 2016 installations either in a data center or in the cloud.

Students typically have more than one year of hands-on experience* with planning and maintaining SharePoint and two years experience with other core technologies on which SharePoint depends, including Windows Server 2012 R2 or later, InternetInformation Services (IIS), Microsoft SQL Server 2014 or later, ActiveDirectory Domain Services (AD DS), and networking infrastructure services.

The minimally qualified candidate typically:

  • Is an IT professional who plans, implements, and maintains a multi-server deployment of SharePoint 2016.
  • Has a working knowledge of, and preferably hands-on experience, with SharePoint Online.
  • Has broad familiarity with SharePoint workloads.
  • Has experience with business continuity management, including data backup, restoration, and high availability.
  • Has experience with authentication and security technologies.
  • Has experience with Windows PowerShell.

* The hands-on experience or job experience should be from a solutions-based role where the candidate has worked on multiple solutions in the SharePoint space that includes document management, content management, and search.
