Intro

In SharePoint 2013, you can configure individual services independently, and you can implement only the services that your organization needs. There are many Wiki Pages and TechNet documentation about that. With this Guide you can have an overview of Wiki Pages and Official TechNet Pages. This will lead you and help you to understand the Service Applications in 2 different ways. An official Way and a Field Engineer way.

For more information about service applications and services, see Technical diagrams for SharePoint 2013. If you plan to use Office Web Apps, you must install and configure them to work with SharePoint 2013. For more information, see Overview of Office Web Apps and how they work on-premises with SharePoint 2013.

Deployed services are named service applications. A service application provides a resource that you can share across sites in a farm or sometimes across multiple farms, and users can access them through a hosting web application. Service applications are associated to web applications by service application connections.
