Nearly 140 attendees, from 16 countries, attended this event last week. This community event was led by 8 Microsoft Integration MVP’s, that did not only the presentations, but also Q&A sessions with 3 members Microsoft’s Product Group. DevScope also participated with two of our Integration Specialists: Sandro Pereira and Rui Machado.

Sandro made a presentation on Windows Azure BizTalk Services (aka. Windows Azure EAI & EDI Labs). Besides the Italy and Norway sessions, this one had some new step-by-step demos on-stage:

  • EAI SQL Demo: This demo intends to show some of the Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) capabilities in the cloud and how we can connect with on-premise system using LOB Targets and Service Bus Connect.
  • Customer Orders Routing Demo: This demo aims to show how can you apply transformation, Enrich properties in the Bridge (like Property promotion) and Route messages in Windows Azure Service Bus. Messages are treated in different ways – applying different transformations and sending messages to different endpoints such as queues or Line-of- Business targets.
  • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Demo: This demo intends to show how to configure trading partners, agreements and the creation of EDI Bridges to process and exchange EDI messages to your partners.
