Early this year we built a business application for order management for Northwind Traders on the Office and SharePoint platform using Visual Studio 2008 and Office & SharePoint 2007. If you missed them: Architecture of the Northwind Office Business Application OBA Part 1 – Exposing Line-of-Business Data OBA Part 2 – Building an Outlook Client against LOB Data OBA Part 3 – Storing and Reading Data in Word Documents OBA Part 4 – Building an Excel Client against LOB Data OBA Part 5 – Building the SharePoint 2007 Workflow The solution consists of an Outlook client that pulls up order history when a customer email arrives in the sales associate’s inbox. This way they don’t have to leave Outlook (the application that they live in all day) to see corresponding line-of-business (LOB) data, in this case order history, right in the email message.
