We are really excited to announce all the arrangements for BizTalk Innovation Day – London is been finalized. The event will be sponsored by Microsoft, BizTalk360 and some of the consulting companies of the speakers.  This is the first time in UK we are conducting a full day event dedicated to Microsoft BizTalk Server. image The date for the event is 16th January 2013. We also put together a beautiful website for the event, that shows the complete details.

What is BID?

BizTalk Innovation day is a one-day event (we have done it for 2 days in Norway) focused purely on Microsoft BizTalk Server related topics. There are normally 5-6 speakers most of them are Microsoft Integration MVP’s (previously Microsoft BizTalk Server MVP’s). We been successfully conducting this event across various major European cities (Amsterdam- Netherlands, Milan – Italy, Stavanger – Norway ) since Feb 2011. The event is so successful and got some great positive feedback from the past attendees. In the London event, for the first time we are doing a Q&A panel at end of the day. This event is also closely lined up with BizTalk Server 2013 release and most of the session are focused around things that are coming in BizTalk Server 2013. Ex: Steef-Jan Wiggers session on “The new cloud related adapters” and Tord Glad Nordahl session on “Windows Server 2012 and BizTalk Server 2013”. Nino Crudele did an excellent job in the last event in Norway, with his real world experience of showing how your should do a BizTalk assessment and architecture review. Nino has put months worth of effort preparing the document and everyone was so impressed and learned something new in the Norway event. That document is only available for people who attend the event, we circulated that to all the Norway attendees. London attendees will receive the copy.
