Business Connectivity Services in Microsoft SharePoint 2010: Overview
Play Business Connectivity Services in Microsoft SharePoint 2010: Overview
Business Connectivity Services (BCS) – the evolution of the Business Data Catalog – is a key feature of 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 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 and see a detailed demo of how to build a declarative solution using SharePoint Designer, InfoPath Designer and the SharePoint SDK -- without using a developer, or requiring you to write any code. The solution we demo for you connects to back-end systems to both present data and to allow interaction with this data from within SharePoint and Office applications (such as SharePoint Workspace, Outlook, and Word).
