Microsoft is bringing the technologies around integration
together in their vision for integration. API Management, Logic Apps,
Connectors, Service Bus, and BizTalk are shaped into a hybrid type of platform.
BizTalk and the logic apps form the heart in their vision to provide a seamless
hybrid experience. Jim Harrer, the new PM for integration, shared the vision,
services, and roadmap with us today at Integrate 2016. This event is the only
integration focused event worldwide in the London Excel.
Below the picture that tells it all. And around BizTalk will
see a release of the CTP2 version soon, including a first version of a logic
app adapter, which will broaden the connectivity spectrum of BizTalk.
The vision shows Microsoft commitment in the integration
space. Many thought that the BizTalk product was on life support and that there
was no integration story. Well there is one and the roadmap shows a lot of promise.
And what Microsoft has planned for us can be seen in the next picture.
Integrate 2016 started with a blast and demonstrates that
this is event is much needed to reestablish Microsoft as frontrunner in the integration
space and that their technology and services are very relevant.
The Visual Studio Integration is one of the much anticipated
features that many integration professionals cheered. And it shows a good step
forward. The product team shows what investments the Product team is making, which
will enhance our confidence in integration with Microsoft technologies.
Thanks BizTalk360, their team, MVP’s, the attendees and
Microsoft for making this event happening.
