Istanbul SharePoint Summit 2013

cce1c1cc-695b-11e3-ab35-12313d14bd6b-large

Presenter at SharePoint 2013 – Advanced Performance Tuning Session with my colleague Tolga Palaoğullarından

I would like to thank you all  for your good feedbacks …

Office 2003 and Sharepoint Portal 2003 server support ends at 8th of April.

Are you ready ?

In 2002 Microsoft introduced its Support Lifecycle policy based on customer feedback to have more transparency and predictability of support for Microsoft products. As per this policy, Microsoft Business and Developer products, including Windows and Office products, receive a minimum of 10 years of support (5 years Mainstream Support and 5 years Extended Support), at the supported service pack level.

Thus, Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 will go out of support on April 8, 2014. If your organization has not started the migration to a modern desktop, you are late. Based on historical customer deployment data, the average enterprise deployment can take 18 to 32 months from business case through full deployment. To ensure you remain on supported versions of Windows and Office, you should begin your planning and application testing immediately to ensure you deploy before end of support.

About October CU 2013 for SharePoint 2010 server build version

In official documentation (October2013 CU for SharePoint Server 2010 – KB 2825786) states that the Oct CU for SP2010 has the build number 14.0.7110.5000. However, after installing the CU and checking the Central Administration you can see the Configuration database version: 14.0.7108.5000.

The reason for this discrepancy is that mostly only the Search DLLs have the higher (14.0.7110.5000) version number: both Microsoft.SharePoint.dll and the CA portal show 14.0.7108.5000. so in case you see this in your environment

– there is nothing wrong here.
