Book Adam Now
Adam Cogan sat down with Aaron Saikovski of Microsoft Australia to talk about SharePoint 2013
Aaron Saikovski of Microsoft Australia shares some great tips and best practices in this video.
But to start the interview, Aaron shared some of his pain-points of SharePoint 2010, which included:
- Custom code
- Fast search – in particular the claims based authentication bug that stops the thumbnail preview
- Sandbox solutions not becoming popular
Then they moved onto the highlights of SharePoint 2013:
- The new awesome search feature
- The social features (aka gamification)
Aaron also talks about when you should install the latest Cumulative Update (CU). His practice for updating SharePoint servers (2010 and 2013) is that you take the latest CU – 1 (aka CU is n-1)
Finally Adam asks “what investment would you make if you were the boss of SharePoint?” (Jeff Teper)
