Many enterprises continue to invest in feature-rich integration buses, but a growing number of companies have embraced one of the many lightweight, high performing open-source messaging engines. In this session, Richard will outline some of the use cases that cater to these high performing messaging solutions. We’ll look at four engines (Kafka, RabbitMQ, NATS, and Redis Pub/Sub), review their key characteristics, and see a demonstration of each. By the end of the presentation, you’ll have a good sense of when these technologies make sense for a given solution, and how they compare to mature products like BizTalk Server.

14. BizTalk Server – Behind enemy lines – Johan Hedberg

BizTalk is about integration. Although true I’ve seen many BizTalk projects, solutions and installations become the exception and not integrating well with neither existing development practices, release routines or monitoring. For this presentation we will look at an example of the lifecycle of a BizTalk solution adopted to play nice in a java focused organization using the practices, tools and technologies common there to include BizTalk as well.

15. A new set of BizTalk Server Tips and Tricks – Sandro Pereira

It’s critical to use good tools and techniques to maintain, support and produce new working solutions as quickly as possible. In this session, Sandro will introduce you to a new set of useful BizTalk Server Tips and Tricks, acquired by years of experience in the field. The session will cover the expectations for all the roles: architects, managers, developers, and administrators. Topics include BizTalk migration strategy, content-based routing techniques, Mapping, BizTalk administration tips, extending BizTalk out-of-the-box capabilities and many more.

16. How to perform a perfect BizTalk Server Solution review – Nino Crudele

17. Cloud or On-premise for a High Throughput Low Latency Integration Solution – Stephen W Thomas

This will take a look at a real-world client solution case study that looked at three possible options for an integration solution.  The solution will validate the user, validate the inbound message, integrate an external web service, and return the results to the user who is waiting for the results. This solution will look at using Logic Apps, API Apps, or BizTalk and look at the pros and cons of each solution.

18. Real World Industrial IoT – Kent Weare

Recently the organization that I work for has been undergoing the transformation.  With the challenging economic in Western Canada, we are being challenged to deliver more with less.  But, what we have discovered is that less doesn’t have to mean less.  In our case, we have been able to leverage Cloud technology to reduce our costs and time to deliver. In this session, Kent Weare will provide some real world examples of a project that he recently led.  The project is based on an Industrial IoT use case where we need to integrate with a 3rd party in order to deliver telemetry to our business for billing and operational optimization.

19. End-to-end IoT solution leveraging Microsoft Azure Platform – Steef-Jan Wiggers

Today, the Internet of Things (or IoT) is trendy, a lot of buzz and hype around it. However, it has become a reality in our age of digitalization and data. The internet has provided us means to consume data in various ways through devices provided by the smart device. Connectivity, protocols, velocity and volume of data it all matters in IoT. In this session we dive into an end-to-end IoT solution, discussing the technology and services Azure offers and how solutions look in the real world.

20. Azure IoT Hub beyond Hello World – Mikael Hakansson

The Azure IoT platform is built on a robust and stable infrastructure with a rich API for managing and develop IoT solutions. It does, however, leave customers with challenges like application and device management. During this session, we’re going to look at how to build, deploy and manage Azure IoT solutions all from a single hub, and extend it to Azure API apps and BizTalk Server.

21. How to take a customer from a Cloud Assessment to an Implementation – Tom Canter

In this session, Tom talks about what we’ve learned about customers, what they want and how we do actually take a specific requirement to an Azure implementation. We don’t know all the answers, but we can show what we’ve learned. The Assessment process, helping the customer figure out where in the IAAS/PAAS/SAAS spectrum they sit and the path they need to take today. Once we identify a specific requirement, for instance, a credit payment provider and an on-premise service, how do we connect them and show the value they can gain from this transition.

22. Unified tracking across on-premise and the cloud – M R Ashwin Prabhu

Tracking has always been the important requirement of the integration. Now with the scope of the integration need expanded from on-premise to cloud, tracking the technical and business process and viewing these tracked data in one consolidated place is paramount. Users don’t want to view on-premise data and cloud-tracked data in two different places. With BizTalk BAM and Azure LogicApp’s extensible nature we can show how Azure PowerBI can become a one-stop shop to monitor and analyse, the on-premise and cloud tracked data.

23. Implementing a real life scenario for the API Economy – Tomasso Groenendijk

APIs are becoming more important for organizations and people even talk about the API economy but how can you create your own API, expose it globally and make a profit with it? In this session Tomasso is going to show how you can use API Apps and DocumentDB to create a high performant API and how to use API Management in combination with Web Apps to expose the API and accept online payments.

24. API Apps 101 for BizTalk Developers – Nick Hauenstein

You’ve worked with BizTalk Server for years. You know how to make robust, screaming fast, high performance, forward-only streaming pipeline components that are masterpieces of architecture and development – images of sheer perfection. Now you’re hearing all about the world where data is exchanged in JSON everything is invoked by ECMAScript and runs at cloud scale. In this talk, we will work through the basics of Web API, and give you everything you need to let your works of art thrive in the cloud. You will learn how to build an API App, handle request routing and responses, how to emit proper designer metadata, and where to go to begin the process of monetization.

25. Connecting enterprise applications to IBM mainframe systems – Paul Larsen; Steve Melan

Enterprise IT needs to efficiently deliver new composite application that incorporate heritage IBM mainframe systems. Microsoft HIS 2016 and new Connectors enable IT organisations to build robust and scalable solutions that are hosted in BizTalk Server, IIS, SQL Server, and App Service. In this session, we will survey the latest Microsoft technologies and tools for IBM interoperability while examining real use cases deployed on-site at Banque et Caisse d’Epargne de l’Etat, Luxembourg.

26. What is integration today? What are the secrets to being successful?

In this session, Mike will look at some of the ways in which integration has changed over the years and how it may change in the future.
