Installing Office web Apps 2013 components For SharePoint 2013

Installing Office web Apps 2013 components For SharePoint 2013

Definition:

Office Web Apps was first introduced with SharePoint.  Office Web Apps is an online version of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and One Note allowing users to access these applications and their respective documents from any Internet connection and most notable web browsers.  For those running SharePoint 2013, you can deploy Office Web Apps onto your SharePoint farm providing your users with the same functionality as the online version of Office Web Apps.  Deploying Office Web Apps on your SharePoint farms will add the following service applications;

·        Word Viewing Service Application
·        Excel Calculation Service
·        PowerPoint Service Application

will be extending my step by step SharePoint 2013 configuration articles and by the end of this post you will be able to open and edit Office documents from within your web browser without the requirement of having Microsoft Office installed locally.  This is a huge productivity gain for those that might be accessing their SharePoint sites from an Office is usually not available.

9.   to bind that farm to whichever host you choose. In this case, the next section steps you through
10. binding the Office Web Apps farm with the SharePoint 2013 farm. You will bind to the SharePoint farm using HTTP.
