IT professionals must carefully plan, deploy, configure, and administer the complex stack of technologies that comprise a SharePoint service. From SQL Server to Active Directory to DNS to SharePoint itself, these myriad moving parts challenge even the most intrepid IT pros. These technologies become even more complex when you add public and hybrid cloud scenarios, including Office 365 and Windows Azure IaaS. Sessions in this track are geared primarily to IT pros and DBAs. First-class speakers will guide you through the nuances of SharePoint infrastructure management and administration, in Office 365 and "on-prem", and will equip you to deploy and support SharePoint 2013 effectively, with both GUI and PowerShell methodologies.
