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.
