Overview of What’s New and Compelling in SharePoint 2013

The ‘latest and greatest’ version of SharePoint is released, and it is time once again for SharePoint
architects to examine the new features in the software and how they change the best practices around design and implementation.
During this session, we cover the major architectural changes, including the integration of FAST Search,
new service applications, and how SQL 2012 changes data tier architecture for SharePoint 2013. 
Enhanced claims-based authentication options and new best practices around SharePoint extranet models are covered,
and the new Site Mailbox integration options with Exchange 2013 are discussed. SharePoint architects,
administrators, and developers will gain valuable insight into this new, powerful version of SharePoint and
will be able to immediately use the best practices presented within their own environments.
