Whether your business has to synchronize names, update internal information such as customer data, or simply standardize terminology so that everyone is on the same page, our ‘missing link’ will make those connections for you.

Microsoft didn’t provide a connection between its data import tool and the Managed Metadata feature of SharePoint, which means that a company’s business data and its SharePoint taxonomy can’t “talk” to each other. On June 10 at 11 a.m. EDT, PremierPoint Solutions will host a free webinar that unveils a simple, cost-effective way to solve this dilemma.

Aaron Wood, manager of commercial software engineering for PremierPoint Solutions, will guide webinar attendees through a presentation and demonstration of Managed Metadata Term Store Sync (Term Sync), a SharePoint add-on that provides the “missing link” to make this connection possible.

“Whether your business has to synchronize names, update internal information such as customer data, or simply standardize terminology so that everyone is on the same page, our ‘missing link’ will make those connections for you,” Wood said.

The result is that users are provided with more meaningful search results and more efficient findability. The product also supports synchronization of hierarchical term sets, a feature many organizations find indispensable.

Wood explained that 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.

Without Term Sync, SharePoint’s Business Connectivity Services (BCS) will allow 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.

Register for the webinar to learn about the many benefits and efficiencies this linkage can bring to an organization, including enabling users to:

  • Import terms from their line-of-business systems and use them to tag documents, list items and pages in SharePoint
  • Enable synchronization to be done automatically on a schedule or manually on demand
  • 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
  • Synchronize hierarchical term sets

Term Sync installs and is deployed as a SharePoint 2010 or 2013 farm solution. It is sold under two licensing options. Under the first licensing option, Term Sync is licensed by three-pack of Sync Points. Under the second (Enterprise) option, Sync Points are unlimited. (A Sync Point is a logical location within a term store where external data is synced to create and update terms based on the business data.)
