Business Connectivity Services (BCS) -- the evolution of the Business Data Catalog -- is a key feature of Microsoft SharePoint 2010. In this session we discuss the new improvements to this functionality for this release. BCS now enables you to bring external data into SharePoint and Microsoft Office, reuse it, and empower end users to gain insight into the underlying data in a reusable way. This is all done within the browser with full Create/Read/Update/Delete (CRUD) operation support, tighter integration with Office client applications, and better tools for modeling business entities. Learn about the major BCS improvements that will help you make SharePoint a simpler and more cost-effective platform to integrate with your business data.
