Integrating Microsoft Azure BizTalk Services with Salesforce.com

July 14, 2014

2

BizTalk Services is far from the most mature cloud-based integration solution, but it’s viable one for certain scenarios. I haven’t seen a whole lot of demos that show how to send data to SaaS endpoints, so I thought I’d spend some of my weekend trying to make that happen. In this blog post, I’m going […]

The “integration as a service” space continues to heat up, and Microsoft officially entered the market with the General Availability of Windows Azure BizTalk Services (WABS) a few weeks ago.  I recently wrote up an InfoQ article that summarized the product and what it offered.

The Windows Azure EAI Bridges are dead. Long live BizTalk Services! Initially released last year as a “lab” project, the Service Bus EAI Bridges were a technology for connecting cloud and on-premises endpoints through an Azure-hosted broker.

In a few weeks, I’ll be heading to New Orleans to speak at Microsoft TechEd for the first time.

This course, Patterns of Cloud Integration,  takes you through how application and data integration differ when adding cloud endpoints.
