Governance for SharePoint 2013 Customizations
Every customer who has used SharePoint has faced the question of customization. The SharePoint platform has always provided a rich development platform. While SharePoint 2010 introduced the client side API and sandboxed solutions the majority of development was done using server side code that usually had to be deployed by a Farm Admin. SharePoint 2013 has introduced a host of new capabilities and shifted the focus of customization to the client side. While this new model reduces the concerns of an admin running server side code it introduces a host of new challenges to try to ensure a healthy, compliant platform. This session will examine how existing recommended practices for SharePoint 2010 governance are effected and recommend new approaches to address the new avenues of customization including the new application model both self hosted and cloud hosted, the new delegated BCS model, the new branding capabilities and Office Applications.
