Speaker: Wictor Wilén;

From SharePoint 2013 is Office Web Apps no longer an add-on to SharePoint, it is now its own server product – Office Web Apps Server. This new change gives Office Web Apps numerous advantages over the previous add-on model. For instance Office Web Apps can now be updated independently from SharePoint and we can dedicate specific Office Web Apps farms, which can be shared between multiple SharePoint farms, and even Exchange and Lync. In this session we will walk through all you need to know about Office Web Apps Server 2013; from installation, to configuration and how to update it. We will also take a closer look on how to connect the Office Web Apps Server to SharePoint and how it improves the user experience in SharePoint when reading, editing and searching for documents.

  • WAC; Web Applications Companion; is that a acronym that is still being used? On the official Microsoft pages this is nowhere to be found.
