Integrate with business systems with SharePoint
Connect SharePoint with the enterprise
SharePoint has increasingly become a critical system as the front-end to running business processes. As SharePoint takes on the role of unifier to provide a single user interface to knowledge works integrating SharePoint with other enterprise systems becomes critical.
Integrate CRM with SharePoint
A common point of integration is between the CRM system and SharePoint, which can easily put customer and sales related information in the hands of project teams all within SharePoint. For example, a team working on product strategy and roadmap with up-to-date demand data per product will equip the team with relevant information to assist with planning.
Leverage LOB data
The concept of Business Critical SharePoint is all about closing the information gap in organizations where teams can benefit from relevant information that exists elsewhere in the organization. Line of Business (LOB) systems often contains such information and the ability to make relevant selections of LOB data available in SharePoint drastically increases productivity and SharePoint ROI.
BCS integration is not the answer
Business Connectivity Services (BCS) in SharePoint provides basic simple LOB integration, however if your firm requires a more robust enterprise integration then the BCS will not suffice. The ability to stage and transform data in-stream is often a requirement not met by BCS.
