Imported business data and SharePoint Managed Metadata can’t communicate with each other without the missing link known as Term Sync.

PremierPoint Solutions will hold three separate SharePoint webinars on July 8, each exploring different ways to extend and enhance its capabilities. Each of these free one-hour webinars will include a question and answer period.

The Connecting SharePoint’s Managed Metadata Term Store with External Business Data webinar begins at 11 am EDT and will explain the benefits to businesses of having their external business data—such as customer, vendor and product names— available to tag items in SharePoint.

“Imported business data and SharePoint Managed Metadata can’t communicate with each other without the missing link known as Term Sync,” said Aaron Wood, manager of commercial software engineering for PremierPoint Solutions and host of the webinar.

Wood explained that Managed Metadata Term Store Sync (Term Sync), a SharePoint add-on, makes 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,” he 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.

At 12:30 pm EDT, attendees of the Making SharePoint Extranet Collaboration and Management Secure, Easy, and Affordable webinar will learn how to provide secure access to partners, vendors and employees from anywhere on the Internet, with a bulletproof solution that is easy for users to use and for administrators to manage.

Johnathan Horton, who handles commercial software engineering and support for PremierPoint Solutions, will host the webinar. During the session he will demonstrate how Extranet Collaboration Manager for SharePoint (ExCM), a SharePoint add-on, makes the extranet secure and user-friendly, with easy access and collaboration available from virtually any place in the world.

“With ExCM, administrators are empowered to delegate authority to power users designated as ‘site sponsors’ who can perform routine administrative tasks such as sending invitations, adding accounts, unlocking accounts and more,” Horton said.

He noted that all of its administrative features are accessible from within SharePoint itself, so there is no proprietary interface or separate program to learn.

ExCM has been used by AT Kearney, Abbott, Dow Chemical, The George W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum, Hanes, Harvard Business School, the NCAA and numerous other organizations worldwide to make extranet collaboration easy and efficient.

Automating SharePoint User Requests, the last webinar of the day, begins at 3 pm EDT. Handling SharePoint user requests is time- and labor-intensive. During the webinar, attendees will be introduced to PremierPoint Solutions’ ChangeBot add-on for SharePoint. ChangeBot provides an automated, zero-touch solution to the management and execution of user requests for SharePoint changes.

With ChangeBot, an approved user or site owner can select from pre-configured templates to find the exact change he/she needs. This initiates the automated process of approval and the workflow that accomplishes the task—with governance and uniformity standards automatically enforced.

“ChangeBot transforms the way organizations manage change in their SharePoint infrastructure. Once SharePoint farm administrators have all the settings in place, ChangeBot does the rest so that they never have to touch the process again,” said Wood, who will host this webinar as well.

Based in Nashville, Tenn., PremierPoint Solutions is a Microsoft Certified Partner and a nationwide leader in expert-led, in-person and online public classes on SharePoint products and technologies. The company’s software division offers professionally developed high-quality commercial add-ons for SharePoint.
