BizTalk Server Review

This solution has enabled our IT department to connect all our systems together


What is most valuable?

The feature of mapper design and orchestration with Visual Studio is valuable for us.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has enabled our IT department to connect all our systems together without the need to modify these systems.

What needs improvement?

Features which could be improved include sending JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) and receiver ports (which was added later).

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using the solution for over a year.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

The deployment package is very easy, but if you have isolated host services like WCF or Web Services on IIS, then you will need to perform some additional manual deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We did not encounter any issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We did not encounter any issues with scalability.

How is customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I didn't use the customer service at all.

Technical Support:

I didn't use the technical support at all.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Previously we used IBM MQ. IBM MQ consultants are not easy to find, especially in our geographical area (Middle East/North Africa).

BizTalk is easy to implement, deploy, install, and configure.

How was the initial setup?

The setup is very straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented through a vendor team, and they are good. I transferred my experience to the vendor.

What was our ROI?

I can't comment on the ROI.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing and licensing structure is excellent.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Microsoft TFS.

What other advice do I have?

Read up well on how to implement before you get started.
