BDC Becomes BCS

It looks like the new version of Sharepoint 2010 will rebadge the Business Data Catalog (BDC) as Business Connectivity Services (BCS).

This will be providing read/write access to external data from not only Line Of Business (LOB) systems but also web services, databases or other data in sharepoint.

The BCS tools to do this will be in the Sharepoint Designer 2010 and VS2010 - lets hope it's easier than '07 where you ended up crafting lovely metadata xml files by hand or buying 3rd party tools.

For a look at the BCS and other new features of Sharepoint 2010, check out the sneak peaks...
