Über dieses Buch

In this fast-paced 100-page guide, you’ll learn to load, display and interact with dynamic, data-powered Visio diagrams in SharePoint 2013 or Office 365.

Visio Services Quick Guide gives you the tools to build anything from a simple project workflow to an organizational infrastructure diagram, powered by real data from SharePoint or SQL Server. Colleagues can load your diagrams entirely in the browser, meaning that a single Visio client installation is enough to get started. Readers with JavaScript experience will also find out how to get additional control over Visio diagrams using the JavaScript mashup API, and how to build a custom data provider. The final chapter covers some useful information on administering Visio Services.

Get started bringing your Visio diagrams to life with the Visio Services Quick Guide.

Chapter 1. Introduction and Background

Abstract
You’ve probably heard that a picture is worth 1,000 words, and also that actions speak louder than words. If you put those two axioms together, you get the idea of Visio. It is often far easier to understand and simpler to explain a concept, a theory, or even a story by presenting actions visually in blocks and diagrams rather than words. Visio is a very powerful vector graphic tool you can use for exactly that, and Visio Services lets you bring your Visio diagrams to life. In this chapter, we'll have a brief background on Visio, and what Visio Services can do.

Abstract
This chapter covers common adminstrative tasks for Visio. Commands for both Central Administration (CA) and PowerShell (PS) are included.
