We are pleased to present below all posts tagged with 'SharePoint 2010'. If you still can't find what you are looking for, try using the search box.
Many of you may be familiar with the Business Data Catalog (BDC) feature of MOSS 2007 that allowed for the integration of SharePoint with various line-of-business (LOB) systems on a read-only basis. In SharePoint 2010, the BDC has become the BCS – Business Connectivity Services. The BCS has it’s own dedicated database and runs as it’s own service application (as do many of the other services in SharePoint 2010) that can be enabled at the Web Application level.
With Microsoft Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 capabilities, people are now empowered with read and write access to LOB applications and external data sources (such as SQL, Oracle, SAP, CRM, Siebel, Web services, and custom applications), whether they are online or offline. An entire site can be taken offline by using Microsoft Office Workspace and then users can resynchronize when they’re reconnected to the network.
There are many new improvements to Search within SharePoint 2010 including the new FAST Search application which further extends the out-of-box SharePoint search capability. One exciting new FAST feature is “Visual Best Bets” within your search results. Visual best bets show you a thumbnail image of each document found in the search results. For certain file types such as PowerPoint, it even goes as far as allowing you to scroll through a PowerPoint presentation all while staying within your search results page. Very impressive!
WOW! That is my first impression of seeing SharePoint Designer 2010 demonstrated in today’s ignite training. It is absolutely revolutionary!
The instructor basically called the product a complete re-write over the previous 2007 version and you will easily see why.
You can now connect to SharePoint Designer through the ribbon directly from your SharePoint 2010 site, or you can open the site directly in the client.
During today’s SharePoint 2010 Ignite training, it was apparent that Microsoft is now turning to Windows PowerShell as the primary command line tool for interaction with SharePoint.
I learned about many of the advantages that are obtained by utilizing the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell to script administrative tasks in SharePoint Server 2010. Windows PowerShell cmdlets go far beyond the capabilities of previous command-line tools such as STSADM. Windows PowerShell is not a replacement for STSADM, but it certainly seems to be more flexible and powerful.
The Hands-On labs gave me a test drive into the following areas:
How to use Windows PowerShell scripting techniques, such as pipes, filters, wildcards, and enumerations, for SharePoint Server 2010 administration.
How to assign variables and use the SharePoint object model from Windows PowerShell.
This week I have the privilege of attending Microsoft’s SharePoint 2010 Ignite Virtual training course. SharePoint 2010 Ignite is deep technical training for SharePoint 2007 professionals who are looking to upgrade their skills to the new version of SharePoint. I am excited to learn more about the new features and functionalities of SharePoint Server 2010.
The first day included an overview of the following:
I wanted to write a quick note to let everyone know that StreamLogic will be partnering with Customer Connect to present a FREE, live event this Thursday, October 29, 2009, at the Microsoft campus in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Today was the fourth and final day for the exceptional 2009 SharePoint Conference. Today was a deviation from the norm, in that we did not spend the day in the typical SharePoint 2010 sessions. We actually spent the day with the Microsoft Partner Team, attending back-to-back sessions learning how we, as partners, can leverage the SharePoint 2010 platform to create even more value for our clients.
Anyone that knows me knows that our clients are more than just “customers.” I firmly believe in aligning with our clients, understanding their business, understanding what pains they are feeling, and creating long-lasting, trust-based relationships with them – they are my friends. So, when I have the opportunity to learn ways that we can add even more value than we already do, I am definitely on-board...
Today started with a very good session on Governance. This session was not only applicable to SharePoint 2010, but also to MOSS 2007.
A few good takeaways from this session were:
Day 2 started with a session on xRM and SharePoint. It was somewhat ironic that this session was very similar, in terms of content, to the session we do at live events and in our webinars at Success Accelerators. There were a few custom tools that I had not seen before, but overall this was a good session for anyone looking to determine if they can leverage CRM with SharePoint. We work closely with Customer Connect in this area, and have done quite a few integration and xRM implementations, so this is all exciting stuff, and goes back to our motto of ‘SharePoint as a platform.’
Here are a few more highlights from Day 2:
We are at the Worldwide SharePoint Conference in Las Vegas this week, and all I can really say at this point is “WOW!” The talented team at StreamLogic works with our clients on SharePoint implementations every day, so we definitely understand its popularity and what a great tool it is. But walking into the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, I was overwhelmed and surprised; my thought…SharePoint is HUGE!
Day 1 started with keynote speeches from Steve Ballmer, Jeff Teper and Tom Rizzo. Honestly, I would call this a pep-rally rather than a keynote address, as it had more of a ‘rock concert’ feel than a technology conference. Overall, I sensed an emphasis on the concept of SharePoint as a ‘platform’, which is a concept we have been promoting for quite some time to our clients and via our live and web events. This really hit-home when I attended the first ‘developer’ session of the day and there were over 3,000 (I assume developers) attending this one session! In fact, one of the first demos that Tom Rizzo showed in the keynote was a more technical demo using the BCS (Business Connectivity Services – currently BDC in MOSS 2007) and web part development.
StreamLogic has been invited to join the Bamboo team in their booth on Monday, October 19th from 2:45 pm – 4:45 pm. If you will be at the conference, please come by and say hello.
We’ll have a few freebies to give away as well.

Well, we’re now only 3 days away and I know everyone is excited about SPC 2009. Looks like it is completely sold out, which is fantastic:
Straight from the SPC 2009 site, here are just a few of the ‘sneak peek’ sessions that we will be attending:
The complementary paper includes over 12 years of research, recent survey results, and CRM turnaround success stories.
