Going down under–BizTalk Summit 2014

There will be another BizTalk Summit event in august in Australia. The early bird tickets are on sale now until the end of this month! The event will take place in three different cities: Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.


I will be speaking at each of the events together with fellow MVP’s Saravana Kumar, Michael Stephenson, Bill Chesnut, Mikael Hakansson and Mick Badran on various topics around integration with the Microsoft technology stack: Microsoft Azure, BizTalk Service, BizTalk Server 2013 R2, Mobile, Office365, and BizTalk360.

My talk will specifically go into Microsoft Azure BizTalk Service, what it offers today, what scenarios can be supported, development-, deployment-, and operation perspective of this cloud service. Session is called:

Hitchhiker’s guide to integration with Microsoft Azure BizTalk Service

and the actual abstract:

Microsoft Azure BizTalk Service (MABS) is almost available to us for a year. It is a newcomer in the world of integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) and promising contender for the sweet-spot in the Gartner’s Magic Quadrant. This service in Azure has a great deal to offer and can provide different means of integration in the changing IT world of on premise ERP systems, services, cloud and devices. In this session the audience will learn where the Microsoft Azure BizTalk Service stands in the middle of the iPaaS world, what it has to offer today and what the road-map will look like in the future. During the session there will be various demo’s showcasing the service features from a development, deployment and operations perspective.

You will find the agenda, other speaker bio’s, sessions and abstracts on the site, where you can register.

Looking forward to speak there and meet people in Australia. I have not seen this part of the world yet so it will be quite an adventure. See you there!
