Creating Solutions with the Business Data Catalog
During this session, learn what the Business Data Catalog (BDC) is, why you would want to use it, and how to create applications that leverage the BDC. This session demonstrates what functionality the out-of-the-box BDC Web Parts provide and shows how they can be leveraged to quickly create applications inside SharePoint without writing a line of code! The session also demonstrates how custom Web Parts and Windows Forms Applications may be used to accesses BDC data when the out-of-the-box BDC Web Parts don't meet the needs of a project. Finally, this session demonstrates how to use the BDC and Excel Services KPIs to create powerful digital dashboards.
