• Workflows to be submitted to SharePoint Server record center sites,
• The execution of excel worksheet models in workflows,
• The execution of search queries against Microsoft Office SharePoint Server’s enterprise search engine and the results incorporated into workflows,
• Data retrieval from line of business applications and external databases through queries to the Business Data Catalog, plus
