Very often it is important to integrate a database with a web application. One of the most advantageous approaches to organize data access to Oracle is to utilize the Business Connectivity Services from Microsoft.
Microsoft SharePoint is generally well accepted, and becoming much more common as the corporate Portal. Knowledge workers or specialist collaborating in this product is a simple, basic and pleasant experience. Why not integrate some SAP data into this space? The question will probably come down to the technical architecture. However, one of the advantages of SharePoint BCS (Business Connectivity Services) or SharePoint’s basic strategy for connecting to external data sources and SAP’s Enterprise Services is that they are two standards that should work together without any 3rd party components. Shouldn’t the goal or aim be to simplify this solution?

We’re quite sure you have heard this one before – Metadata!
Metadata is data about the data or additional information about the information.
I remember when I heard Metadata first time, it sounded gibberish. Data about the data! Let us take an example to clarify it more. When you create a word file on your pc or desktop and if you hit the ‘Save As’ option, on that moment some data is created with the document automatically. File name, size of the file, and the author’s name is created that time and you don’t have to do a bit to create this information. If we take another example of a book, attributes of a book like – the title, author name, date of publication, subject, and ISBN number are used for searching.
As the world is changing with the advancement of new technology, it has also brought changes in the way how businesses are done in the past and what Microsoft called the “New World of Work”. Companies used to have offices in global locations and they have different working hours. So, the main issue is to stay connected and for that different alliance software has been used. The use of digital data has grown promptly and the protocols associated with the digital data is very complex. Companies have a hard time with collaboration and sharing as well as providing security measures and privacy of that business data. A solution was strongly needed that bridge the communication gap across different continents and time zones with tools that provide effective collaboration and data management to the fullest.
