Next BrizTalk Meeting: BizTalk 2013 & BizTalk360 Demos!

I’m really looking forward to presenting a double-header at our next Brisbane BizTalk User Group meeting on Wednesday:

What’s New in BizTalk Server 2013

Finally released to manufacturing, this long awaited edition hosts a variety of new features that make integrating your on-premises system with the cloud so much easier. The new REST and Azure Service Bus adapters provide quick & simple connectivity for building powerful, flexible and highly scalable hybrid solutions with BizTalk & Azure.

We’ll see an example of both in action during this part of the presentation.

Monitoring with BizTalk360

Now in Version 6.0, Saravana Kumar and his team have released the best-ever edition of BizTalk360, an easy to install web-based application that helps manage the complexity of supporting your BizTalk environments. In addition to the standard features of monitoring, alerting, administrating and auditing, the new capabilities of this release include:

  • Search & Action on Artefacts (Receive locations, send ports, applications etc.)
  • ESB Exception Management Portal
  • Custom SQL Query Complete Rewrite
  • Database Query Monitoring
  • SQL Agent Job Outcome Monitoring
  • Threshold Monitoring Window
  • Scheduled Monitoring Downtime
  • Support for SSL

I’ll present a demo of an active installation so you can witness first-hand the simplicity with which this awesome tool provides value!

If you’re in the Brisbane area, drop by Microsoft at 400 George St, Lvl 28 at 5:30pm on Wednesday, 29th May for some pizza and a great session! All i ask is that you register first so that I know how many pizzas to order!
