Data Integration

Connect to Any System, Share Data Across the Organization

Easily integrate with any of your third-party systems. Sitecore CMS lets you:  

  • Connect to any database, web service, or other external service such as Windows SharePoint 2007/2010 with prebuilt connectors, data abstraction layers and out-of-the-box integration capabilities
  • Publish information directly from multiple information sources to the Internet seamlessly from within the Sitecore interface
  • Enrich your CRM with information about your customer’s online activity with Microsoft Dynamics CRM integration

Speed Integration with XML

Sitecore stores and utilizes all of its content as XML. To facilitate integration with external database systems, Sitecore offers the Data Provider abstraction Layer. This gives developers a standardized way to expose database connections to Sitecore so they can access those databases and records as if they were simple XML documents. This streamlines development and allows developers to leverage the tremendous power of XPath and XSL.

Drive Value by Sharing and Reusing Data

Connect web and non-web systems easily for greater sales, marketing, and support effectiveness. With Sitecore CMS, you can:

  • Share and reuse content: Easily connect to any source and access content as if it were native Sitecore content, eliminating duplication of content and additional manual effort
  • Enable your sales team with real-time insight: Integrate with your CRM system to automatically deliver actionable data on opportunities to your sales team         
  • Reduce developer effort and project risk: Our out-of-the-box integration capabilities reduce custom programming, project costs, and risk
