Description: Join Don Campbell, Technical Evangelist for Microsoft, and Michael Scherotter, Solutions Platform Evangelist for Mindjet, to see a demonstration solution from the Mindjet Labs that uses the Open XML file format of Microsoft Office Word 2007 to transform business data from MindManager to Word 2007 and back again.

This technical demonstration shows how high-fidelity round-trip scenarios are possible with the Open XML file formats when used in conjunction with other XML-based applications, like Mindjet MindManager.

In the export to the Open XML file format, this solution creates a custom Ribbon UI tab embedded in the document. This allows the Word 2007 user to take advantage of some of the visual organization and project planning capabilities of MindManager while using Microsoft Word 2007.

This also highlights the MindManager Solution Platform which makes such integrations easy, quick, and visual.
