Presentation: "Office in a World of Services and Mash - Ups: Building Composite Applications based on the Microsoft Office SharePoint Platform"

Time: Monday 14:40 - 15:30

Location: Kammermusik


The latest version of Windows SharePoint Services (WSS), v3.0, provides us with a framework for developing feature-rich, modular and modern web applications including support for blogs, WIKIS or even personalization. Built on top of WSS v3.0, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 enables you to combine these possibilities with well-known capabilities of portals and composite applications in enterprise environments. Collaborative Content Management, Ad-Hoc Workflows, personalize-able dashboards are key buzzwords, of course all integrated with your existing IT infrastructure and services.

In this session you will learn about the architecture of the SharePoint and Office platform as well as their ability to combine modern paradigms from the web with enterprise-level requirements, effectively. You will even learn, how you can integrate SharePoint as a central information hub into a heterogeneous landscape of IT services based on a variety of mechanisms such as web services, the business data catalog or the ECMA/ISO Office Open XML File Formats. See, how SharePoint enables you building a platform for mash-ups in the Enterprise 2.0 world!
