BizTalk360 first anniversary

Category : BizTalk360 Update



In UK we got a policy of shifting the bank holidays that comes in the middle of the week to following Monday, so people can have an extended weekend. Last year’s 1st May bank holiday was shifted to 2nd May, on that day we released our very first version of BizTalk360 CTP to public. Today is 7th May, alternative to 2012’s 1st May holiday. 1st-anniversary We introduced BizTalk360 with a very powerful tag line “Worlds first BizTalk production support and monitoring tool“. We clearly understood, being first doesn’t mean anything (Google is not the first search engine, iPOD is not the first MP3 player and Windows is not the first GUI OS to give few examples). It’s all about innovation and constant improvement that either makes or breaks the product. In the following chart we summarize our improvement over the last 1 year. We release 4 major versions in the past 1 year. We simply didn’t increase the version number for every simple updates, each version came with substantial functionality that ease the life of BizTalk administrators and support people in a day to day activity.

In the past 1 year we got customers over 10 countries, covering various industry sectors. Most of the customers are large scale enterprise customers, some of them are well known retail brands. Never thought the shirts I wear and the world famous trainers I use for my tennis (companies) will become my customers one day!!. I whole heartedly thank every one who helped us to achieve this milestone. All my MVP and community friends, my close family and friends. We haven’t paused yet, we already started planning for what’s coming after 4.0 (keep tuned).
