Energizing Higgs Phenomenology for Run-2

The High-Energy community is only now in the process of fully appreciating the opportunities the LHC provides by producing electroweak-scale resonances beyond threshold. On the one hand this is reflected by exploiting different theoretical frameworks in giving an interpretation to LHC data and on the hand by studying Higgs and gauge boson production in processes with large momentum transfer. Accessing more exclusive phase space regions will allow to either discover New Physics or improve Higgs-boson couplings measurements. I will briefly review our current status of Higgs phenomenology at the LHC and discuss implications of and tools necessary for future measurements, focusing on Higgs boson and Dark Matter phenomenology.
