Web Content Management and Enterprise Data - this course covers two new aspects of SharePoint 2007: how to host content managed sites with Web Content Management and how to access data that does not live within SharePoint using the Business Data Catalog.
In SharePoint 2007 Microsoft introduced two new offerings to the platform. First, they took the best features and capabilities in Microsoft Content Management Server 2002 (MCMS) and created Web Content Management (WCM). The goal of WCM is to host content centric sites such as publically facing anonymous .COM sites. The other big addition to the product is the Business Data Catalog (BDC). The BDC enables customers to expose data that does not reside in SharePoint to users within SharePoint. This course demonstrates how to create custom solutions with both WCM and BDC.
