PremierPoint Solutions will hold a free webinar titled “Connecting SharePoint’s Managed Metadata Term Store with External Business Data”,June 18 at 11 a.m. EDT.
The webinar, hosted by Jeff Cate, president of PremierPoint Solutions, will explain and demonstrate Term Sync 2.0, a SharePoint add-on that provides the missing link between a company’s business data and its SharePoint taxonomy (internal data).
Term Sync 2.0 was introduced last month as PremierPoint Solutions’ newest version of its Term Sync (Managed Metadata Term Store Sync for SharePoint). Term Sync’s new features provide support for synchronization of hierarchical term sets and improved performance in processing, resulting in faster synchronization.
Microsoft has made “tagging” using “terms” easy to do in SharePoint through its Managed Metadata feature, and the Managed Metadata Term Store, so that related documents and list items can be organized and easily found.
SharePoint’s Business Connectivity Services (BCS) allows users to import external data important to their business into SharePoint, but it does not provide a way to get that data into one’s term store, from which it can be used to tag documents and list items in SharePoint.
“Because Microsoft did not provide a connection between its BCS and the Managed Metadata feature of SharePoint, the two don’t ‘talk’ to each other. This creates a real problem for companies that want to get their external data into their term store so they can use it as metadata,” Cate explained.
Solving this missing link between SharePoint’s BCS and its Managed Metadata Term Store can have a very beneficial impact on an organization. Term Sync 2.0 is designed to bridge that gap efficiently. It is the connector – the missing link – between the data import tool (BCS) and the term store.
“Whether you need to synchronize names; update customer and internal information; or simply standardize terminology so that everyone is on the same page, Term Sync can get – and keep – your business data and your SharePoint taxonomy linked and synced,” Cate said.
Webinar attendees will learn how Term Sync empowers them to:
- Import terms from their line-of-business systems and use them to tag documents, list items and pages in SharePoint
- Keep the imported terms in sync with their business data so that new terms are created automatically and existing terms are updated when the business data changes
- Enable synchronization to be done automatically on a schedule or manually on demand
