Visio Services for SharePoint 2010

Objectives: Visio Services lets users share and view Visio diagrams. It also enables data-connected Visio diagrams to be refreshed and updated from various data sources.
In this course, you’ll learn how to make Data-Driven visualizations easier to create than ever before.
Through exploration and navigation of these rendered diagrams you will see how they are supported within the Visio Web Access Web Part. Page designers can configure the user interface and functionality of the Web Part. Visio Services can also refresh the data and recalculate the visuals of a Visio diagram hosted on a SharePoint site. This enables published diagrams to refresh connections to various data sources and to update affected data graphics and text fields.

Target Audience: Delegates attending this course should have a good working knowledge of Visio and some understanding of SharePoint.
