The goal of BizTalk Server 2010 is to help organizations create automated business processes that span diverse applications and platforms.
Along with its core messaging and orchestration capabilities, the product includes a BRE for working with complex business rules and BAM to let information workers track running processes. Additional components, such as EDI support, the RFID server, SOA infrastructure support, Enterprise Single Sign-On, and HIS address other related challenges.
From its initial roots in EAI and B2B integration, BizTalk Server has grown into a foundation for BPM. As the change to a service-oriented world rolls on, BizTalk Server 2010 will continue to play an important part in automating business processes in a diverse world.
Understanding BizTalk Server 2010 requires a grasp of how it addresses each of these three areas:
– Connecting applications within a single organization, commonly referred to as enterprise application integration (EAI). As more organizations move toward service-oriented architecture (SOA), the approach to doing this also becomes increasingly service-oriented.
– Connecting applications in different organizations, typically referred to as business-to-business (B2B) integration.
– Supporting the holistic approach to working with automated business processes that’s defined by business process management (BPM).
