Probably you can get the custom site URL and a title at the SharePoint site, but most hosting providers offer this as paid option (please note that with PlexHosted you can get it for free!), but you need to know that this look and feel has been designed by Microsoft for the common uses. Now you can decide for yourself how you want to use this site and whether you want SharePoint 2013 site leave “as is” or to build your own environment to enrich your company’s identity.

Hi all,
Today I want to discuss about the great feature of SharePoint 2013 and SQL 2012 Business Intelligence – SharePoint Power View 2012.

PowerPivot workbooks – work with large number of data

Have you ever stuck on task of improving business in the branches of your company? If yes, then you found what you were looking for. Please let me explain it.
Suppose that you want to compare large amounts of data, make reports of analysis with graphs, tables, etc. and pass all reports to other departments of your company. To simplify your task you can use MS Office 2013 (Microsoft Access 2013 or Microsoft Excel 2013) to create reports that contained a lot of data with graphs, pictures and tables. Let’s imagine that you spent a lot of time and created many reports, but you still can not decide how to share all reports with a lot of data for other departments of your company?
There are several of major problems you can get when try to share files to other departments:

  • security (in my opinion send all data by mail not very secure way to share reports for other, is not it?)
  • different software (how often do you were asked about how to open the file you sent?)
  • opportunity making changes that are available instantly for anyone
  • opportunity for all employees from different departments to see the same document at the same time

As you can see there are a lot of problems which must be solved to make easy your work. Please no worries I have a solution for you! It`s a SharePoint Power View feature which is included to the SharePoint 2013 and SQL 2012 Business Intelligence. You can get all of Business Intelligence 2012 benefits with PowerPivot for SharePoint 2013. Please stay with me and let`s take a look at the Power View SharePoint 2013 feature overview.

SharePoint 2013 Power View feature overview

Power View in Excel 2013 and Power View in SharePoint 2013 both provide an interactive data exploration, visualization, and presentation experience for all skill levels. Pull your data together in tables, matrices, maps, and a variety of charts in an interactive view that brings your data to life. The Power View feature enables quick and easy visualization of large data while allowing sharing and collaboration of business insights in a familiar SharePoint 2013 Business Intelligence environment.

SharePoint 2013 and SQL 2012 Business Intelligence (BI hosting, PowerPivot hosting)

If you already have some kind of BI hosting probably you already enjoyed the SharePoint Power View feature. In other case you need to get PowerPivot hosting from one of the Business Intelligence hosting providers (please note that PlexHosted offer such kind of the BI hosting) and store workbooks and reports to the one place – SharePoint 2013 site. Please see the example of Power View Chart at the screen below:
SharePoint 2013 Power View
SharePoint 2013 Power View

Power View 2012 features (SharePoint 2013 and SQL 2012)

A Power View report is always presentable – you can browse your data and present it at any time, because you’re working with real data. You don’t need to preview your Business intelligence report to see how it looks. Power View 2012 does have reading and full-screen presentation modes, in which the ribbon and other design tools are hidden to provide more room for the visualizations. All workbooks and reports are still fully interactive, with filtering and highlighting capability. You can export an interactive version of your Power View 2013 report to PowerPoint 2013 (each view in Power View becomes a separate PowerPoint slide). Interacting with Power View reports exported to PowerPoint is similar to interacting with Power View views in Power View reading and full-screen modes: You can interact with the visualizations and filters that the report creator has added to each view, but you cannot create visualizations or filters.
Power View 2012 report with multiple views featuring tiles, slicers, a chart filter, and a number of visualizations, including cards, small multiples, and a bubble chart. With SharePoint 2013 Power View you can use such great features as:
  • Power View Time Series Analysis: ability to perform dynamic and interactive time series analysis with Power View.
  • Power View: ability to visualize and interact with data in new ways with Power View.
  • Power View Trellis Charts: ability to compare your data in Power View with trellis charts.

Power View for SharePoint 2013

So, as you can see, the Power View feature for SharePoint 2013 meets all your requirements and can resolve all problems described previously. Now, you can share your workbooks and Power View reports in the secure way without worry about the installed at the other user PCs software. In addition you can get the ability making changes that are available instantly for anyone. Now, all employees from different departments and geographical locations can see the same document at the same time.

Try the Power View feature of SharePoint and make your business more effective!

Hi my dear reader!
As you know, computing systems and applications are essential part of modern life and we cannot imagine our business life without them at present days. It is especially true for e-commerce companies, but also of great importance for other businesses. If a company uses such systems to perform business critical functions like order processing and tracking, inventory control, transaction processing, customer support, and electronic commerce the consequences of failing these systems may be catastrophic.

SharePoint large farm architecture

SharePoint large farm servers

In case some of functions described below are not accessible you can lose revenue and productivity, have your customer unsatisfied, lose business critical information and have reduced decision making capabilities. All these consequences made companies to choose highly available environments that are up and running 24/7 and 365 days per year for performing their business tasks.
The other important thing that hosting provider can offer is support and monitoring for SharePoint servers 24/7/365. So with dedicated highly available SharePoint server you can get a widely used corporation tool which gained its popularity in all corporate circles which gives you an ability to build a robust, fault-tolerant, and highly available portal that will survive the loss of any one component.

Get SharePoint on multiple servers

With PlexHosted you can easily get highly available SharePoint farm and be sure that all your applications are protected from failing because SharePoint architecture is based on multiple servers, users will have a high ability to perform their expected job responsibilities, and business and customer transactions won`t be stopped. Having chosen a solution providing high level of accessibility you can prevent your company from loss of business, customers and damaged reputation. And here starts good news for you. PlexHosted provides fully managed, high-available dedicated SharePoint servers with SharePoint Foundation, Standard or Enterprise editions.

Highly accessible SharePoint servers

Highly accessible SharePoint portal is an essential requirement for companies planning to build a public facing site. It is designed to support big number of users online at the same time. In general company can have up to 2 million users per site collection if SharePoint large farm architecture is used.

Highly available SharePoint servers

Disaster recovery and high-available SharePoint systems

High availability of the SharePoint Server – this is one of the main reasons which makes companies think: “SharePoint system is the exactly what we need!”. When choosing highly accessible redundant environment for your business, note that you must distinguish high-availability and disaster recovery. Even in case of a failure of part of the infrastructure highly available SharePoint portal gives you an ability to access the system, submit new work, update the existing work, or collect the results of previous work. And disaster recovery process helps you to recover an environment that has already failed. So, please be careful with SharePoint provider choosing, because some of SharePoint providers offer cheap “Disaster Recovery” systems but called them “High Availability” SharePoint servers.

Benefits of SharePoint high availability SharePoint server

All of front-end web servers, application servers, database servers will be protected from unplanned hardware, software and human errors. It will be also protected from planned downtime resulting from reconfiguration, hardware upgrades, hot fixes and service packs as well as protected from data loss or corruption, from site failures or disasters. I think it`s a good reason to buy highly available dedicated SharePoint servers for your company, isn`t it?

Dedicated SharePoint hosting for large business

And finally, if you still hesitate whether you should invest in highly available SharePoint 2010 or not answer one of the following questions:

  • Will employees be unable to perform their expected job responsibilities in case the system site, service, or farm becomes unavailable?
  • Will business and customer transactions be stopped, leading to loss of revenues and customers when system becomes unavailable?

If you have answered “yes” on at least one of these questions then yes, you certainly should. In addition, if you want to get best support, monitoring SharePoint servers you need to take a look at PlexHosted company services.
PlexHosted are experts at setting up dedicated high-availability, secure SharePoint 2010-2013 systems for its customers. Let me show you why.

Greetings everyone!
Are you want to have a SSL secured SharePoint environment and be sure that SharePoint data is secure? In this case, you are at the right place! I would like to tell you about SharePoint SSL security and SharePoint SSL certificates in this post.

SSL – Secure Sockets Layer

What is SSL (Secure Socket Layer)

It stands for “Secure Sockets Layer” and it is a protocol that creates secure (HTTPS) connectivity between the server and your application and allows encrypting and decrypting data sent between the two. The applications like web browsers (Internet Explorer and Firefox), email programs like Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Apple Mail.app, and SFTP (secure file transfer protocol) programs are configured to run SSL. These programs are automatically able to receive SSL connections. But to establish a secure SSL connection your application must have an encryption key assigned to it by a Certification Authority in the form of a Certificate. When your application owns its unique key, you can establish a secure connection using the SSL protocol. In case you are transmitting confidential, business critical information using your SharePoint environment with the SSL encryption will protect it from others seeing it. Do not let your data to be available for those who shouldn’t have it. You can always be sure that sensitive information like Social Security numbers, credit card numbers and so on is protected by a secure HTTPS connection and your customers can trust to your site.
