SharePoint Module Enhances Information Sharing and Collaboration with Support for both Distributed and Centralized Management of SharePoint Content

XMLAW announces the availability of the SPxConnect SharePoint Module which extends SharePoint’s Content Management capabilities, supporting both distributed and centralized management models. The Module combines content from multiple sites and areas into an aggregate, big-picture view and delivers content from centrally managed sites or areas throughout a portal environment.

SharePoint-based applications are becoming more prevalent in law firm portals because they are easy to create and use. This Module extends the use of lists, libraries and galleries, including documents, announcements, tasks, calendars and custom lists, to created dynamic, easily deployed and highly usable business solutions.

For example, a client team can have real-time access to aggregate views of content from matter sites or workspaces relating to their client. Conversely, matter teams can have access to content managed by the client team within the context of their matter workspace. SharePoint content from these areas, sites and workspaces can then be further extended to client extranet workspaces, providing secured access to aggregate views or filtered views of the same information.

“The SharePoint Module represents a strategic addition to our SPxConnect product line,” said Rob Saccone, President & CEO of XMLAW. “By adding SharePoint content to the list of information sources SPxConnect integrates, our customers can combine the capabilities of SharePoint list and library management with the content and functionality of other SPxConnect-integrated systems such as document management, time and billing or CRM applications. This greatly extends our customer’s ability to create enterprise class, integrated portal applications that span business systems and processes.”

The SharePoint Module is built on XMLAW’s SPxConnect v2.1 application framework, providing a complete foundation for quickly building applications with integration of content and functionality across line-of-business systems and custom-built applications. With this Module, firms can now connect information from both inside and outside SharePoint, taking full advantage of SharePoint while leveraging existing technology.

The SPxConnect SharePoint Module features:

o Simplified deployment and configuration – all through the browser.

o Central creation and management of views, characteristics and functionality, including context menus and navigation.

o Advanced parameter management to dynamically set web part properties and values within a user’s context using globally managed parameters, site properties, connections between web parts and query string parameters.

o Customizable tool pane, a recent enhancement to SPxConnect application framework. Web parts can be configured to expose configuration and parameter options in the standard SharePoint tool pane, allowing users with appropriate access rights to customize web parts without exposing advanced configuration options or technical information.

o A consistent and common user interface that adheres to SharePoint functional standards, styles and themes, reducing the need for training on separate applications.
