Prerequisites


An ideal candidate will have at least one year of experience with deploying and administering multiple SharePoint 2010 farms across a large enterprise. Because many customers skipped upgrading from SharePoint 2007, a candidate can also have at least 2 years of experience with SharePoint 2007 and knowledge of the differences between 2007 and 2010, particularly the Service Application model. A candidate can demonstrate the following skills:
  • Software management in a Windows 2008 R2 enterprise server or Windows Server 2012 environment.
  • Deploying and managing applications natively, virtually and in the cloud.
  • Administering Internet Information Services (IIS).
  • Configuring Active Directory for use in authentication, authorization and as a user store.
  • Managing an application remotely using Windows PowerShell 2.0.
  • Connecting applications to Microsoft SQL Server.
  • Implementing Claims-based Security.
