Many businesses that use SharePoint also store data in other places: SQL databases, cloud storage sites, HR and accounting systems, inventories, and point-of-sale systems. Learn how to connect to, read, and even update information stored externally, in locations like these, and create rich, highly visual webpages with SharePoint Designer. Gini Courter shows how to manage data sources—whether they're databases, web services, or XML files—without any code, and use Web Parts to display the data. She also shows how to use Business Connectivity Services to integrate external data into your SharePoint site in a natural way, and create advanced views into your records with Business Data Web Parts.
