Managed Metadata Term Store Sync for SharePoint 2010 (Term Sync) links your business data and your SharePoint taxonomy. If you have data outside of SharePoint that would be useful as metadata on document libraries inside of SharePoint — but is not currently connected to SharePoint — this add-on will bring your SharePoint taxonomy alive by aligning it to your business.
With Term Sync 2010:
- You import terms from your line of business systems and use them to tag your documents, list items and pages in SharePoint.
- The imported terms are kept in sync with your business data so new terms are created automatically and existing terms are updated when the business data changes.
- Synchronization can be done automatically on a schedule which you specify or manually on demand.
