SPTools – Connect the TYPO3 CMS with Microsoft SharePoint

The SPTools Extensions have been designed to use the advantages of the TYPO3 CMS and Microsoft SharePoint in one solution.

Through the middleware SPTools the systems form an optimal enterprise system, which connects the Web Content Management TYPO3 with the SharePoint Intranet solution or the Office 365 cloud solution.

SPTools creates the possibility of connecting TYPO3 front- and backends to SharePoint sites, the presentation of SharePoint libraries and lists, data transfer via forms and synchronization of SharePoint data and files with TYPO3 databases / Extensions and the TYPO3 filesystem / FAL (File Abstraction Layer)

SPTools at Universities

The Universities of Vienna, Austria, (Faculty of Veterinary Medicine) and Paderborn, Germany, opted for the use of SPTools365.

In the field of higher education the combination of SharePoint and TYPO3 is very popular. The favorable conditions in the licensing of SharePoint in education and the Open Source idea of TYPO3 form an attractive and future-proof solution.

SPTools offer the possibility to share data, documents and workflows.

The quick integration and flexible capabilities of SPTools were convincing, not least the future-proof basis of SPTools365 which already provides the cloud connection of SharePoint through its Office 365 integration.

SPTools365 for SharePoint Online and On-Premise

A fundamentally new SPTools version is available: SPTools365

SPTools365 support the combination of TYPO3 with SharePoint 2013-2019 and the cloud-based Office solution Office 365 from Microsoft.
