Abstract

SharePoint is very good at enabling you to store data and present it on the Web, but most organizations have data in many different areas and systems that they would like to present in a web format. In previous chapters, you learned how to create data sources of internal data stores. In this chapter, you will learn how to connect to external sources of data and present that data on your SharePoint site. This chapter also covers SharePoint’s new Business Connectivity Services, which makes it easier to surface your line-of-business data on your SharePoint site.
