The SchemaLogic Connector for Microsoft SharePoint 2007 enables companies to manage and connect the metadata structures that describe corporate information assets stored across multiple SharePoint sites and other systems. The Connector continuously updates and synchronizes the metadata across multiple sites and throughout diverse systems. This structure aligns all SharePoint sites across the organization, providing a consistent foundation for unified information access.
Many organizations have embraced SharePoint Server 2007 and implemented global deployments with thousands of SharePoint sites. This proliferation of sites has resulted in a lack of enterprise governance over the metadata structures for site, library, and list definitions. The SchemaLogic Connector for Microsoft SharePoint 2007 specifically addresses these issues. It enables companies to develop and manage an enterprise-wide metadata model describing corporate information assets stored across multiple SharePoint sites. This standard is published across all SharePoint sites delivering enhanced information integrity, consistent information access, and effective governance across the enterprise.
The Connector allows metadata models managed in SchemaServer to be linked and synchronized with metadata structures in SharePoint (Content types, Site Columns and List Values). This enables organizations to centrally manage and synchronize sites, templates, lists, and semantic search capabilities across Windows® SharePoint Services 3.0 and SharePoint Server 2007 sites.
Changes to the metadata model in SchemaServer are published to SharePoint, creating and updating metadata structures. The Connector promotes governance and compliance across the entire SharePoint environment while allowing for departmental variations, which are linked and tracked for ongoing governance and compliance management.
