BizTalk Talks the Talk

I have to admit I don't fully understand BizTalk. Middleware is always a bit imprecise to me, and BizTalk is no different. And service-oriented architecture, in which BizTalk plays, is confusing to me even after reading an entire book about it.

So forgive me if my report on the next version of BizTalk lacks depth.

What I do know is that BizTalk is all about integrating software systems in what used to be called enterprise application integration. BizTalk talks the talk by integrating with over two dozen major applications such as SQL Server, SAP, Oracle, Seibel, DB2 and PeopleSoft.

Now let's talk about deliverables. BizTalk 2009 R2 will now be BizTalk 2010 and, apparently, will ship this year. New features include a new dashboard, hooks to System Center, better connections to trading partners and updated support for SAP and Oracle eBusiness Suite.

Do you use BizTalk? If so, how? Explain it all at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
