Large enterprises use a wide range of business application tools such as CRM, SAP, order management applications and so on for their day-to-day operations. Each application interacts with one another as a part of the business operation cycle. As a result, it becomes difficult to oversee what is happening in the business environment.
BizTalk360 comes with an integrated BAM portal that allows the business users to query BAM views, perform activity search, view the user permissions, and the activities time window. BizTalk360 picks up the configurations automatically if you have used the BizTalk server BAM functionality and displays them in the portal. This way you can get seamless access to all the information required by the support people and minimize their efforts to jump between multiple tools to get different data related to the same application.
If you have used BizTalk server BAM functionality for your applications; BizTalk 360 will automatically pick up those configurations and display it. There is no necessity to do any additional configurations. The home screen lists all the BAM view’s currently configured in the environment and it list all the BAM databases configured.
The integrated BAM portal comes with a powerful query builder that allows you to query the BAM data seamlessly. A BAM view can have one or more activities; Activity search functionality allows users to query the activity data.
As a BizTalk Administrator, it is important for you to keep an eye on the size of database data and log files. In BizTalk360 the BAM databases screen displays the list of BAM databases for that particular environment and some properties of the database such as data file size, log file size and so on.
Are you are viewing the activity time window information by using the command line BAM management tool bm.exe and passing the right set of arguments? BizTalk360 makes this process simpler and seamless for you by bringing the information right into the integrated BAM portal screen. The activities time window defines the time frame for how long the BAM data will reside in the active BAMPrimaryImport database.
BizTalk360 backs the security infrastructure provided by BizTalk server to access any BAM related data. This gives the maximum protection and it respects the existing BAM security setup. It is important to make sure the BAM data is protected, as it may contain some sensitive information.
It’s good to have BizTalk360 in BizTalk support from both support as well as security perspective. The tool UI becomes one stop solution for most of the support activities. The “Auto Healing” functionality is working like a charm.
