Saravana will be demonstrating the newest features as well, and giving a sneak peek into what's coming into the product over the next few months.
Conversational applications, or BOTS, are one of the hottest trends in Information Technology. However, a BOT that isn't able to communicate with other systems isn't all that interesting. In this session, Kent Weare will demonstrate how developers can use Azure Logic Apps and Azure Cognitive Services to improve the user experience for BOT end users.
Microsoft answer to the iPaaS evolution is Logic Apps, an Azure Service that brings connectivity to any other Azure Service and SaaS solutions available. And with the Digital Transformation a key service to build agile solutions in Azure that can scale. Busineses will benefit leveraging this service to be at the frontier of the digital marketplace.
In this session, we will look at using Enterprise tooling such as Visual Studio and Visual Studio Team Services build and release management to have a seamless chain of making changes in Visual Studio, comitting and having it published in Azure. We will look at how you can structure your solutions and what you need to add to make them deployable. We will both look at the continuous integration and deployment aspects as well as gated deployments.
While working on several Internet of Things projects with different customers in Europe, it became clear that Integration matters more than ever. Building an overall IoT solution requires many different technologies and skills. The Architect role is crucial to combining different services into one solid solution. Integration skills are extremely important in building robust and scalable IoT solutions. Every phase of the IoT value chain requires integration, since IoT solutions are distributed and decoupled by nature. Retro-fitting existing devices? Routing of telemetry data? Or even exposing analytics results through secured APIs? All these challenges require integration skills. Skills that are very familiar to specialists in the Integration business. This session will explain why these are great times to be an Integration expert and how we can help tackling current challenges.
As an integration expert, you are surely familiar to many of the most commonly used patterns and practices. Internet of Things shares many of the same characteristics with system integration, but often used in a different context and for different purposes.
This talk will be covering some of the most common information exchange patters used in today’s IoT solutions. We are going look in detail of how to implement them, and we’re are also going to take a closer look into the different protocols and elaborate on when to use what.
Integration must be referred to as artistry, the art of inventing on the spot. A rounded integration of frameworks and products requires us to find ways of assessing these kinds of creative qualities, too. Join Nino in this session to see his point of view about Microsoft BizTalk Server and the most important Microsoft Azure stacks.
In the race to deliver software faster, integration work becomes a bottleneck. What does it mean to do "cloud-native integration" and how would you introduce that into your organization? In this talk, Richard takes a look at six characteristics of cloud-native integration and uses demonstrations to explain why each one matters.
This session will look at how to architect your Logic App solution to ensure a smooth transition into production. This will take a look at design considerations, deployment options, ways to monitor Production Logic Apps, and some lessons learned from my past Logic App production deployments.
In this session we’ll explore the popular enhancements found in BizTalk Server Feature Pack 1, including enabling applications to be deployed and updated using Visual Studio Team Services, support for Azure Application Insights and enabling advance scheduling of runtimes.
In this session, Sandro will talk about a hardcore BizTalk topic that will address the following question: How can I optimize/tuning my BizTalk environment for performance. Optimizing your BizTalk Server installation is not an easy thing to do because it affects several layers and skills. This topic is very well documented by the product group but the problem is that it is very extensive and complex. This presentation will aim to guide you through the most important steps, operations or task you need to do in order to boost the performance of BizTalk that you can adjust or follow according to your needs because, depending on your infrastructure, this can be a straightforward operation or a very extensive and hard operation. But I will try to keep it as simple as possible so everyone can understand and follow.
Maintaining a good and healthy environment for BizTalk is vital. Saffi will guide you through the BizTalk Health check process what Microsoft follows in their Premier Field Engineering assignments. What areas to check, how to check and How to analyse and identify current or potential problems.
Organisations are increasingly becoming aware of the immense power afforded by hybrid application architectures. Enterprise businesses can now leverage the scale, elasticity, economy and global reach afforded by Microsoft Azure whilst still retaining the investment and security of their on-premises LOB systems, helping them to maintain a competitive edge in a world where businesses are no longer constrained by geographic boundaries. Yet with so many options available for connecting systems, which one should you choose? In this session we will discuss the various Microsoft offerings for hybrid connectivity including Hybrid Connections, the On-Premises Data Gateway, Virtual Private Network, Service Bus WCF Relay and the new Azure Relay - and when best to use which.
BizTalk Server can be well positioned to become a gateway to hybrid integration scenarios with Azure, leveraging from its adapter suite to achieve integration with Azure - from Logic Apps and Service Bus queues, topic and relays, to REST based Web APIs and Azure Functions.
Within this session, Wagner Silveira will explore the alternatives to connect BizTalk to the Azure cloud and back, identifying possible scenarios, and highlighting how BizTalk out of the box functionality can be leveraged to implement integration with Azure.
Join Martin Abbott as he takes on the role of information worker and citizen integrator and builds an entire application integrated with line of business systems in 45 minutes. Using PowerApps and Flow, business users can be more productive than ever and Martin will take you through a live demo of these great business transformation tools, and moreover, he promises the session will have no more than 3 slides!
