Great news for the BizTalk community, BizTalk Innovation Day will be back to Italy on October 17 and even more great news: the event is free but you need to be aware that the places are limited!
The speakers are the usual suspect, the “BizTalk Crew”: me, Steef-Jan Wiggers, Tord Glad Nordahl, Saravana Kumar and of course the host of the event Nino Crudele! But as has been normal in recent events and the ones we are preparing, we will also have special guests, and in this particular case, a well-known special guest: Paolo Salvatori and Salvatore Pellitteri.
BizTalk Innovation Day is a one-day community-driven event focused purely on Microsoft BizTalk Server related topics that have been conducted in several major European cities since Feb 2011: Amsterdam (Netherland), Milan (Italy), Stavanger (Norway), London (UK) and Porto (Portugal) and we definitely hope to be a day with high technical sessions, in the company of prominent speakers and international experts in the field of integration, is definitely an event not to be missed for all professionals and companies that use BizTalk Server and interested in the field of integration and private-public Cloud.
So we invite you all to join us next October 17, 2013, in Milan, Italy in the Microsoft Italia headquarters (Via Lombardia 2/a-1 – Peschiera Borromeo), where you can count with the following agenda:
09:00: Agenda Briefing, Health & Safety;
09:15: BizTalk Server 2013 and the Windows Azure Service Bus: Hybrid Solutions
by Steef-Jan Wiggers [Microsoft Integration MVP];
The IT landscape has changed over the years. Applications and services are spread within enterprises and in the cloud. The demand for integration will increase in the future. Microsoft’s will provide us the technology to build hybrid solutions, bridging on-premise systems with the cloud.
10:15: Use Windows Azure Service Bus, BizTalk Services, Mobile Services, and BizTalk Server to create hybrid solutions
by Paolo Salvatori [Microsoft Windows Azure Customer Advisory];
The Service Bus is part of Windows Azure and is designed to provide connectivity, queuing, and routing capabilities not only for the cloud applications but also for on-premises applications. Microsoft BizTalk Server enables organizations to connect and extend heterogeneous systems across the enterprise and with trading partners. Using both together enables a significant number of scenarios in which you can build secure, reliable and scalable hybrid solutions that span the cloud and on-premises environments. Windows Azure BizTalk Services is a simple, powerful, and extensible cloud-based integration service that provides Business-to-Business (B2B) and Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) capabilities for delivering cloud and hybrid integration solutions. Windows Azure Mobile Services accelerates connected client application development by streamlining common backend tasks like structuring storage, authenticating users, and sending push notifications. In this session, you will see how to integrate these technologies to build secure, reliable and scalable hybrid solutions that span the cloud and on-premises environments.
11:30: Management and Monitoring of BizTalk Server using BizTalk360
by Saravana Kumar [Microsoft Integration MVP]
Some of you might have attended the BizTalk innovation day in Milan last year and watched my session on BizTalk360. You may be thinking, you don’t want to hear the same story again. But, it’s pretty much 12 months since you heard the story and BizTalk360 is drastically advancing product with one simple objective “Increase the efficiency of day-to-day BizTalk Server operations”. There were 2 major releases (5.0 and 6.0) since my last presentation and possibly a big announcement by the time I present the session in Milan again this year. So I can assure you, you’ll not be disappointed by this session.
14:00: BizTalk Mapping Patterns and Best Practices

This presentation will explain how maps are processed internally by the engine of the product as we explore the map editor and will provide you with common mapper problems and solutions, i.e., some BizTalk Mapper Patterns specifying best practices and some of the best ways to address some of your needs within the context of message transformation and also to enhance your skills when using the BizTalk Server Mapper.

BizTalk is used by the majority of all large companies worldwide and is considered the heart of many companies, when it comes to supporting and transferring parcel information, updating gas prices or combining important information at an ER. It’s important to understand the different bottlenecks and the resources available for your environment. You have to keep it stable, available and fully supported. This presentation will give you an overview of the important aspects that need to be taken into consideration when running a BizTalk environment where availability, scalability, and stability are important.

The facets that should be addressed are equally numerous, from new licensing and productivity to an analysis of the expected advantages, and all these aspects should be investigated strategically in order to reap the best results from this new platform.
