Business-critical processes with SharePoint and SQL

SharePoint 2010 provides the ability to connect to backend business systems, surface business data in SharePoint and make it accessible by, and useful to, employees across the organization. Almost every company of significant size uses ERP and CRM solutions to run core business processes. Over time, companies have developed detailed practices around using such systems to support vertical disciplines within the organization (e.g. product planning, financial performance management, supply-chain management, etc.), yet challenges remain with regard to driving visibility and collaboration, based on business data, across different disciplines and teams. These challenges stem from the fact that only a fraction of employees are licensed and trained to use those backend systems, and from the high cost and complexity of integrating such systems across different functions and teams. To learn more about the benefits related to enable business-critical solutions with SharePoint and SQL, follow the link below.

What’s New in SharePoint Online: November 2011 Update

Our first update to SharePoint Online (SPO) since the launch of Office 365 (O365) became generally available on June 28, 2011 is now complete worldwide. We thought it would be a good time to share information about the new features and fixes available as part of this service update. On a broad level, this update enables greater reach to both people and external data, while at the same time increasing the number of supported devices and Web browsers. We also added some self-management recovery capabilities. But there’s a lot more, too.

Testing with SharePoint Projects

As an application platform, SharePoint is subject to the same best practices as any other application development. For example, you should version control your code, you should track your work, and you should test in a pre-production environment. In this session we will discuss the different types of testing suitable to all application development; then we'll focus on the tools and approaches best suited for SharePoint.
