Roadmap BizTalk Server 2000 BizTalk Server 2000 Released December 2000 BizTalk Server 2002 BizTalk Server 2002 Code name “Bizet” Enterprise Edition Most commonly requested features in Enterprise customer base Currently in Beta
BTS 2002: Functional Overview Target Enterprise Operational areas Target Enterprise Operational areas Deployment Intra-Company Inter-Company Monitoring Management Tools and “Add-On” Features Tools and “Add-On” Features EDI Enhancements XML Tools Enhancements Orchestration Enhancements Documentation/High-End Samples
Deployment Scenarios Intra-Company Deployment: Intra-Company Deployment: How can operations managers move BizTalk Server solutions from one environment to another (e.g. dev test staging production)? How can operations managers deploy BizTalk Server solutions between machines in a server farm? Inter Company Deployment: Inter Company Deployment: How can an enterprise hub help its trading partners connect without incurring costs associated with technical hand-holding?
Deployment Requirements Encapsulate a BizTalk Application Encapsulate a BizTalk Application Simple and intuitive experience Simple and intuitive experience Facilitate deployment across clusters/firewalls Facilitate deployment across clusters/firewalls Staging : Development to Test to Staging to Production Staging : Development to Test to Staging to Production Deploy Now Scheduled replication Automatically within a cluster Automatically within a cluster
Production Server Farm Intra-Company Deployment Firewall Development/Staging Environment
Intra-Company Deployment Solution based on Application Center Solution based on Application Center BizTalk driver for Application Center: BizTalk driver for Application Center: Enumerates configuration artifacts hierarchically Messaging ports, distribution lists, custom counters, receive functions (channel, docdefs, maps, envelopes, etc… Native Application Center drivers: Native Application Center drivers: File System: Orchestration schedule files. COM+: COM+ apps. Web sites.
Inter-Company Deployment Goal: Rapidly create B2B relationships Goal: Rapidly create B2B relationships Scenario Scenario Typical Hub-Spoke model IT Dept woes Ensuring data from client is in order Client Configuration debugging Connectivity testing SEED Tools – Super Effective and Efficient Deployment SEED Tools – Super Effective and Efficient Deployment

Monitoring: Customer Feedback Target Users Target Users IT operations Business User We need: We need: Richer, user defined, events and counters. Guidance on interpreting NT Events More powerful alerts and notifications. Orchestration related performance counters.
Monitoring/Tracking Solution will be based on Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) Solution will be based on Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) Features Features Health Monitoring across server farms User definable monitoring, alerts, and notification Better problem resolution support Event consolidation and alert/notification throttling
New Tracking/Monitoring Features Custom Counters Custom Counters Richer Suspended Queue Event Richer Suspended Queue Event MOM Management Pack MOM Management Pack NT Event rules and KB Alerting and Notification New Orchestration performance counters New Orchestration performance counters
Custom Counters Need to monitor, alert, and notify based on richer set of document processing info. Need to monitor, alert, and notify based on richer set of document processing info. Example: Example: Important Customer: NorthWind If the orders per day from my fulfillment organization to NorthWind drop below 100, raise an alert in MOM and notify me via email.
