Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Emilio Melo, and welcome to my course, Planning and Configuring Business Connectivity Services in SharePoint 2019. I am a cloud solutions architect at Cloud Advantage with a focus on data and AI technologies.

Some of the major topics that we're going to go over includes what is BCS and the proper infrastructure that needs to be in place to enable that, how to create and configure BDC models, and the elements available on the SharePoint interface to work with BCS. By the end of this course, you'll know how to use Business Connectivity Services on SharePoint 2019. Before beginning this course, you should have a good understanding of SharePoint concepts. It's also useful to have some basic familiarity with databases. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into other topics on the SharePoint path.
