We have done consulting work for various organisation, typically the BizTalk environment topology diagram is drawn in Visio and stored somewhere in document a repository like SharePoint. Depending on the size of the organisation, there will be various environments like SIT, UAT, Staging, Performance, Production, etc and it will be a time-consuming task to keep the diagrams up to date. Majority of the time the diagrams will quickly go out of sync when more servers are added/removed to the environment, not representing the real topology.
, solves this problem by intelligently generating the topology diagram on the fly. This solves few issues
- You don’t need to spend time generating topology diagrams in Visio.
- Your diagram is always in Sync with the real environment, since it’s generated based on the current configuration.
- The diagram is readily available on the tool you use to support, so you don’t need to hunt for them in your document repository.
- Diagram got inbuilt zoom-in/zoom-out capability if your environment is complex (ex: 6 BizTalk server , 4 SQL Servers)
