We are looking forward to an even more challenging 2018, but in this special season, we just want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

“São João Hospital and DevScope developed and implemented the VITAL – SurVeillance, MoniToring and ALert solution based on Microsoft’s business intelligence capabilities, including SQL Server 2012 Enterprise Edition, across the hospital to help analyze and correlate the massive amounts of patient data housed and spread within its several systems. The solution automatically identifies, scores, and promptly alerts hospital staff about patients at risk for clinical deterioration, helping staff address the situation where possible. It is also able to anticipate 30 percent of intensive care unit (ICU) admissions and 50 percent of non-intensive care unit (ICU) inpatient deaths within seven days before the event.”

We are proud to be part of this team and this is yet another recognition for the results that we have been witnessing year after year.

Look forward to inspire others to do more, with less: Go BI Team!

BizTalk Summit 2014 – London


On March 3rd and 4th, BizTalk Summit event will be back to London even bigger and better! The stage will be shared by 12 Microsoft Integration MVP’s from 10 different countries (UK, USA, Canada, Sweden, Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Norway and India) and 4 Microsoft product group members as key speakers. There are 200 attendees expected from 19 countries and close to 100 companies represented at the event.

DevScope will be present with Sandro Pereira. This year Sandro is teaching BizTalk Mapping Patterns and also doing an introduction to the future cloud-based Windows Azure BizTalk Services Maps.

After many years of integration projects, we have found multiple ways to solve the same problems. Sandro prepared 14 different scenarios, each describing one set of problems (Pattern) and how to address these common message transformation challenges (Options, Implications and Best Practices).

– Which achieves the best performance? Is my message so big that I really need to worry about performance? Do I really need high performance?

– Can I easily maintain this map? It is easy to read and understand? What the estimated effort to change it, debug, finding and fixing problems?

– What are the expertise levels required to create and maintain this map approach? How long will it take to implement?

BizTalk Summit 2014 – London is an event organized by BizTalk360 (Kovai Limited) with co-operation from Microsoft Product Group, Microsoft UK and some Microsoft Integration MVP’s.

DevScope colabora no desenvolvimento do novo Continente Online

Continente Online
Continente Online

O Continente Online mudou, está mais rápido e com novas funcionalidades. Na base deste projecto está uma nova plataforma SharePoint, e um significativo projecto de integração de sistemas e processos. A nova loja online tem uma imagem renovada e, embora  tenha um maior número de produtos visíveis, apresenta um sistema de navegação mais simples e rápido.

Recomendamos um test-drive pela loja, e já agora aproveite para usar a pesquisa baseada em FAST, que torna a experiência de compra num catálogo de 80.000+ produtos uma pesquisa rápida, mesmo para palavras tão genéricas como “Leite” – são “só” 703 produtos:

Sandro Pereira on Stavanger (Norway)

Sandro Pereira on Stavanger (Norway)

Last week, Sandro Pereira joined his fellow BizTalk MVPs for another successful Bouvet BizTalk Innovation Day 2013. The biggest BizTalk event organized in Scandinavia this year had approximately 70 attendees from Norway, Sweden, Italy, Check Republic and Portugal.

First day had presentations from six Microsoft Integration MVP’s (BizTalk), together with Paolo Salvatori (Principal Program Manager of Windows Azure Customer Advisory). Second day was dedicated to a more interactive hands-on labs, were each speaker had his own room and hourly time slots. Attendees could come in for a focused meeting, discussing their issues, asking questions or sharing their experience with the speakers/moderator.

This year Sandro is focusing on Best Practices and Patterns. After years of integration projects we find many ways to solve the same problems. Sandro prepared 14 different labs, each describing one set of problems (Pattern) and how to address these common message transformation challenges (Best Practice).

This was the sixth BizTalk Innovation Day event (the third this year), and we are proud to be part of one of the most important integration events series occurring in Europe. Interested in a future meeting? Please join us in the next event in Italy (October 16)!
