A Cloudy Day for BizTalk (…but what a sunny forecast!)
June 11, 2013 Leave a comment
Recently, Microsoft announced the release of a plethora of new features in Windows Azure, not the least of which was the preview version of BizTalk Services. A re-vamped version of the former Azure Service Bus EAI/EDI Labs which was released last year and taken down earlier this year, Windows Azure BizTalk Services boasts Business-to-Business (B2B) and Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) capabilities for cloud and hybrid integration solutions, including:
- Built-in support for managing EDI relationships between partners
- EAI bridges with on-premises assets (including built-in support for integration with SAP, SQL Server, Oracle and Siebel)
- Optional integration between Windows Azure BizTalk Services and on-premises BizTalk Server deployments
- Like most Azure offerings, BizTalk Services runs on a secure, dedicated per tenant environment that can be provisioned on demand within minutes. It does not require any upfront license, and supports a pay only for what you use billing model.
