Dan Beall, product manager at ComponentOne shared, "Offering a Studio is a natural evolution of our SharePoint product line. All of our Web Parts have a consistent design experience, look, and feel. They also connect and interact with each other. With our new offering, clients may now access all of our Web Parts for one low price. An included subscription also delivers support and any updates we release to this Studio for a year. That means clients will receive enhancements and any new Web Parts we release free of charge while their subscription is active."

In addition to the new purchasing model, this release also brings many new enhancements to the Web Parts and more data sources are available in all three of the current Web Parts. Now users can point, click, and connect to SharePoint Server lists, Microsoft SQL Server databases, Oracle databases, and Microsoft Office Excel files as a data source to display data sets, chart data, and map locations. Without writing a single line of code, users can connect, configure, and style data views using the On-Board Designers available with each Web Part. The DataGrid even allows users to edit and add data to the database. This means users of any level can quickly build an interface to corporate data in SharePoint Server. Compared against the usual process of coding access, ComponentOne's Web Parts deliver instant ROI.

"We also have optimized the user experience," said Beall. "Load times are faster and we have expanded formatting choices. People can now display the data the way they want by specifying any data format, setting column widths, and showing live links."

Since their release, the ComponentOne Web Parts have been recognized as the Web Parts of choice by members of The Code Project and the readers of Visual Studio Magazine. In each instance, ComponentOne Web Parts for SharePoint received the highest honor.

"ComponentOne's Studio for SharePoint empowers end users to easily and quickly access and analyze data," said Arpan Shah, director of SharePoint at Microsoft Corp.
