Speakers and Abstracts
Penny Coventry - BCS: How to get started
Many organizations see Microsoft SharePoint as yet another silo of information that can only exploit data stored in lists and libraries. In this session, Penny will review the different methods of using external data within SharePoint. The rest of the session will concentrate on Business Connectivity Services (BCS). She will show you what you need to do within the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration web site, how to use SharePoint Designer to create external conten types - the components that enable you to connect to external sources. Lastly Penny, will look at external lists.
Anthony Obi - Accessing BCS Data: SharePoint Query vs. SharePoint Search
In this session, Anthony will be looking at two different approaches for retrieving and displaying external data in SharePoint 2010. He will be covering the basic fundamentals required by each for it to work, before attempting to explore and compare a variety of features available within each approach through a series of demonstrations. Finally Anthony will attempt to highlight key points/comparisons to look out for when attempting to identify which approach to use in real world scenarios.
