The Public Beta of SharePoint 2013 and Records Management (AIIM)
Like many others in the ECM and RM ecosystem who write and speak and consult and build solutions, I have been trying to figure out how to think about the Public Beta of SharePoint 2013. We have had our consultants and architects and product guys crawling through it. I get that it’s a big deal, but what is it? (Note - Some of the SharePoint 2013 strategies and features are still under wraps from an NDA perspective, but others have been described publically in selected forums.) My friend Dave Martin had a recent post in the AIIM Communities on this topic. So, a month after the announcement, what and how are we thinking about SharePoint 2013?
SharePoint 2013: A Low-key Update You'll Love
As part of an across-the-board retooling of its server products, Microsoft is revising SharePoint 2013. Given the impressive features and UI enhancements in SharePoint 2010, I've been uncertain about what Microsoft could do to SharePoint 2013 that would actually make it better. Now that I've seen the prerelease SharePoint 2013, I'm happy to report that Microsoft hasn't sullied SharePoint with gratuitous or confusing changes.
Microsoft Goes Back to School and Gets Smart: SharePoint 2013 & Education Services (CMSWire)
Sometimes Microsoft gets a good idea and then doesn’t follow through on it. This is the case with SharePoint and support for education. There’s a long history here and Microsoft appeared to drop a major opportunity. But SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 may just change that.
5 Opportunities in Windows Server 2012 (Redmond Channel Partner)
A Windows server launch is always a date for partners to circle on their calendars. The launch this month of Windows Server 2012 was no exception. Billing the new server as a "cloud OS, "Microsoft did a lot of work in this release to integrate Windows Server 2012 with the forthcoming System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 and with Windows Azure to address the changing needs of the IT world.
Microsoft Going All in With Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 (TechWorld)
It's a huge year for Microsoft. The venerable tech giant is essentially reinventing itself from the ground up for 2012. A new server OS, new desktop OS, new Microsoft Office suite, new mobile platform, and new tablet hardware are all being launched virtually simultaneously. To say Microsoft has a lot riding on the success of the new products is an understatement. Apparently, Microsoft is willing to put its money where its proverbial mouth is, though, and lead its customers by example. There are reports that Microsoft plans to accelerate its normal PC refresh cycle to give all employees new Windows 8 desktops and laptops. But, wait--there's more! Microsoft is also allegedly issuing new Windows Phone 8 smartphones and Surface RT tablets to all employees as well.
Microsoft Warned Forefront Axe Could Drive Customers to Rivals (CRN)
Microsoft partners have warned that the discontinuation of some of its Forefront security products will drive customers towards rival vendors that specialise in security, such as McAfee and Symantec. Last week the vendor axed its 2010 Exchange Server, SharePoint, Security for Office Communications Server, Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010 and TMG Web Protection Services as part of its "effort to better align security and protection solutions with the workloads and applications they protect".
Microsoft Releases Fix-It for IE Zero-Day, Promises Patch Friday (PCMagazine)
Microsoft released a Fix-It tool to temporarily fix the zero-day vulnerability in Internet Explorer today, and promised an emergency patch on Friday. A security researcher stumbled upon attack code on a compromised server over the weekend targeting a zero-day vulnerability in Internet Explorer. The drive-by download attack was triggered by a use-after-free flaw which was present in all versions of Internet Explorer, except IE 10. Security researchers recommended users stop using IE entirely until the flaw was patched.
Microsoft: Google Breached Your Privacy; Use Bing (ZDNet)
"Apply cold water to burned area." Microsoft is taking advantage of Google's own "do no evil" policy after the search giant was found tracking Safari users in order to display advertisements even when they should have been blocked. Microsoft fired back on all cylinders with a scathing marketing campaign.

“An Unexpected Error has Occurred” After Installing SharePoint 2013 (SharePoint Interface)
You’ve undoubtedly heard the news: SharePoint 2013 is coming. The preview is available right now, and you can download it from TechNet if you want to join in the fun. Just make sure you can meet the hardware and environmental prerequisites. They’re somewhat brutal.
SharePoint: Custom Views for Multiple Content Types within a Single List (EndUserSharePoint)
In this example, we have two custom content types based off the Event list content type: (1) “Event Type 1”, with single line text fields “Column A” and “Column B”, and (2) “Event Type 2”, with single line text fields “Column Y” and “Column Z”. Create a Calendar, “Sample Calendar”, and add these two content types to the list. After creating an event of both content types, we see that the add, edit, and display forms all act as we would hope – only columns in that content type appear.
SharePoint 2013: A look at the New Options for Managing Users and Their Licensing (Wictor Wilén - SharePoint MCA, MCM and MVP)
In todays episode of discovering awesome features in SharePoint 2013 we’re going to take a look at something really interesting, a feature that has been requested for years, a better management of end-user licensing in SharePoint. Even though this article contains a lot about SharePoint 2013 licensing I must make it very clear that nothing has yet been communicated from Microsoft regarding licensing on SharePoint 2013, and I am no expert on licensing and this is a Preview and this article must be considered as-is, things will and might change over the course of time. Remind me to go back to this article once SharePoint 2013 has gone gold. Microsoft has not made any statements about this and it might be so that you can forget about this article after RTM.

STP Nairobi: Michael Noel's ‘The Ultimate SharePoint Infrastructure Best Practices Session’ (The Bamboo Team Blog)
Michael's session at STP Nairobi (AKA SharePoint Saturday Nairobi) was dedicated to "best practices around setting up SharePoint." Beginning with the topic of architecting the farm, Michael said that it's "most important to understand that there are three tiers of infrastructure": the Web tier, the data tier, and the Service Applications tier (the "middle tier"). "You need to architect your environment around these three tiers of SharePoint infrastructure."
STP Nairobi: Mark Miller’s Keynote: 'Building Community Around the World' (The Bamboo Team Blog)
Following introductions provided by individual members of the STP team, Mark led a roundtable presentation on building community around the world, using images from past and present STP Tours by way of example. With contributions from the team, Mark essentially provided what amounted to an "STP Greatest Hits" slideshow, with due props (of course) to STP Africa sponsor Colligo. The informal presentation generated many laughs from attendees, as the team shared reminisces of our adventures and misadventures. Mark asked the audience to give themselves a hand, as they'd come out for the first-ever SharePoint event in Nairobi and, having done so, they had the beginning of vibrant SharePoint community in place. Over a hundred attendees had come out for SharePoint Saturday Nairobi, which is a phenomenal turnout for a first-ever SharePoint Saturday.
