Course Description

If you have managed SharePoint for five years or more, you know that this product, like so many, is a moving target. Versions change, and SharePoint 2013 can be upgraded to SharePoint 2016 using a database migration method. Additionally, the SharePoint 2016 environment should be kept bug-free and secure, which requires regular patching, and is now provided by Zero Downtime Patching. In this course, you will learn to upgrade a SharePoint 2013 farm to SharePoint 2016 and to correctly patch your SharePoint 2016 farm.
