Please take a look at our product video to see how easy it is, to connect external data sources to SharePoint:
The fast, easy and complete integration of external data sources is a common requirement in the use of Microsoft SharePoint technology. Solutions, such as the Business Data Catalog (BDC) for SharePoint 2007 or the Business Connectivity Services (BCS) for SharePoint 2010/2013, are often complex at the facility, require additional tools or programming, have serious limitations or are available for certain SharePoint editions only. The Layer2 Business Data List Connector for SharePoint completely solves those issues.
The connector offers a SharePoint "External List" by connecting a 100% NATIVE SharePoint lists (no SharePoint Web Parts, no BCS - native contacts, news, tasks, events or custom lists) to almost any external data source in just minutes directly in the list settings. The desired data can be populated to the list and presented without any restrictions, with the full functionality of common native SharePoint lists.
