Layer2 Cloud Connector V5 Simplifies Data Integration with Microsoft SharePoint, Office 365, Exchange and Dynamics

Layer2 has announced version 5 of the Cloud Connector for Office 365 and SharePoint integration. The “Swiss-Army Knife” of external data integration and synchronization closes many gaps that still exists with Microsoft’s out-of-the-box cloud offerings.

The rapid adoption of Microsoft Cloud offerings such as OneDrive, Office 365, SharePoint Online, Dynamics Online, Exchange Online and Windows Azure is driving the need quickly integrate these new services with the existing corporate or organizational IT – otherwise in many cases the potential benefits cannot be released. That’s why the Layer2 Cloud Connector does not only support cloud-to-cloud integration, but also hybrid cloud-to-on-premises integration scenarios, complementing currently existing IT infrastructures like databases, ERP/CRM or file shares.

Quickly synchronize almost any business data with the cloud

The Layer2 Cloud Connector seamlessly integrates applications hosted in public or private clouds, as well as applications and data hosted on premises by codeless data synchronization – without the need to modify the data sources, open the corporate network for the internet or programming. It directly empowers departmental subject matter experts and reduces the dependency on corporate IT, helping teams to get things done faster.

 “Layer2 Cloud Connector is not only about connecting the data entities and surfacing the data in the Microsoft cloud, it’s about deeper integration. The connector synchronizes pre-selected subsets of data sources with native SharePoint lists or libraries. This straightforward concept makes all SharePoint features of fully available for the synchronized data without any restrictions, e.g. views, search, offline or mobile access, metadata, change notifications and workflows”, Frank Daske, Product Manager at Layer2, explains. “Data synchronization provides a simplified architecture, where users are working with copies of the original data cached in the cloud, with highest performance and at a maximum security level. No additional user licenses are required for the connected systems.”
