BizTalk Summit 2014 – London

Image

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.

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)!

A big THANK YOU to all our friends

Is not very common in Portugal have an event dedicated exclusively to BizTalk Server and special bring one Program Manager in the BizTalk Product Team to Portugal, this was the first time! So it’s a great feeling when we manager to successfully execute something like this.

The event was held in Casa do Infante, located in the heart of Porto’s UNESCO Heritage Site, and what a beautiful combination between a building with 7 centuries of history and full of culture with new technologies. I would like to thank Porto Convention Bureau for kindly given us the venue for the event we couldn’t picked a better place.
