Webinar: Understanding Business Connectivity Services in SharePoint Online

Webinar: Understanding Business Connectivity Services in SharePoint Online

We are delighted to announce our forthcoming webinar with Brett Lonsdale, owner of Lightning Tools, a Microsoft® SharePoint® tools and web parts vendor.

This session is action packed with demonstrations of how to bring business data into Microsoft SharePoint Online. Organisations usually have data sources that are disconnected and run as silos within different departments of the business. Using Business Connectivity Services, Brett will demonstrate how to connect to those external data sources using App Scoped External Content Types and by importing BDC Model files, and then make the data available to users for building dashboards, searching external data, using the data through the Microsoft Office Client, and ensuring consistent meta data within documents using the Business Data Lookup Column.

The take-home will be a complete overview of Business Connectivity Services and an understanding of how Business Connectivity Services could apply to your business.

*The demonstrations will be in SharePoint Online. However, SharePoint 2010/2013 users will still find this session advantageous as much of the functionality is the same.

Our webinar will also feature AP’s Mick McGuinness explaining how performance issues with SharePoint can be monitored and resolved. Join us at 4.00pm GMT / 12.00 EDY / 9.00am PDT.
