Service Applications in SharePoint 2010: Continued:

Readers as promised with all of you, I am writing up in continuation with my previous article of the Services Applications in SharePoint 2010.

Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 includes a set of service applications that you can use to share services across Web applications. In some cases, you can also share service applications across farms. You can manage service applications by using Central Administration or by using Windows PowerShell 2.0.

Below are the details on the Service Applications and the detailed study link for them.

Service application references:

Access Services:
Access Services in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 is a service that allows users to publish an Microsoft Access 2010 Web database to a SharePoint site. When an Access Web database is published to SharePoint Server 2010, a site is created to host the Web database, plus it moves all of the database objects and data to a SharePoint list on that site.

Business Data Connectivity:

Microsoft Business Connectivity Services are administered primarily by using the Business Data Connectivity service. Administrators of Business Data Connectivity service applications can perform operations on the source of data for those applications to maintain security and ensure appropriate access to data.

Document Conversion:
Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 supports installing document converters on the server that let users transform documents from one format to another.

Conversions can be run either from the user interface or programmatically, such as from a custom workflow. The relationship between a source document and its transformed counterpart is maintained.

Excel Services:
Excel Services in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 provides several methods to extend the capabilities of Excel Calculation Services, customize applications and workbooks, and also allow developers to incorporate Excel Services into their solutions.Excel Services in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 provides the ability to connect to external data sources and refresh this data.Excel Services administration (SharePoint Server 2010)

Managed Metadata Service:
Managed metadata is a hierarchical collection of centrally managed terms that you can define and then use as attributes for items in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010.

To use PerformancePoint Services in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, you must configure a PerformancePoint Services service application. Once you have created the service application, you must provide data access to the users. This can be done by using the unattended service account, or by configuring Kerberos delegation.

Secure Store:
In Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, the Secure Store Service replaces the single sign-on (SSO) feature of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. The Secure Store Service is a claims-aware authorization service that includes a secure database for storing credentials.The Secure Store Service is an authorization service that runs on an application server. The Secure Store Service provides a database that is used to store credentials. These credentials usually consist of a user identity and password, but can also contain other fields that you define. For example, SharePoint Server 2010 can use the secure store database to store and retrieve credentials for access to external data sources. The Secure Store Service provides support for storing multiple sets of credentials for multiple back-end systems.Configure the Secure Store Service (SharePoint Server 2010)

State Service:

State Service is a shared service that is used by some Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 components to store temporary data across related HTTP requests in a SQL Server database. In SharePoint Server 2010, the State Service is required by InfoPath Forms Services (including out of the box and custom workflow forms), the SharePoint Server 2010 Chart Web Part, and certain Microsoft Visio 2010 scenarios that do not use Microsoft Silverlight 3.Manage the State Service (SharePoint Server 2010)

Visio Graphics Service:

The Visio Graphics Service is a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 service application that allows users to share and view Visio web drawings using Visio Services. The service application also enables data-connected Microsoft Visio 2010 web drawings to be refreshed and updated from different data sources.Visio Graphics Service administration (SharePoint Server 2010):

User Profile Service:

User Profile Service is a shared service in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 that enables the creation and management of user profiles that can be accessed from multiple sites and farms. Administration of User Profile Service applications is much simpler in SharePoint Server 2010 and can be delegated to a service application administrator by the farm administrator.User Profile Service administration (SharePoint Server 2010):http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee721050.aspx
