Using MDS to manage SharePoint term-stores and Dynamics CRM option sets/lookup fields RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are busy developing an enterprise platform and applications using SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, BizTalk, etc.

    Throughout the SharePoint and CRM environments, there are a number of meta-data term stores, option sets and lookup fields which have the same values. Maintaining these separately in SharePoint and CRM presents a problem in terms of data consistency. We are therefore exploring the option of using MDS to manage these sets, and to "push" them to SharePoint and CRM.

    Questions I have in this regard are :

    a) Is this a feasible solution? If not, any suggestions around how we keep these term sets, etc. in synch?

    b) Assuming the solution is feasible, what is the best way to implement it? Custom services in SharePoint and CRM? BizTalk services and orchestration?
