BizTalk-Based Internet Service Bus

Lots of stuff today about BizTalk Services, the new offering from Microsoft that exposes an “Internet Service Bus” built upon BizTalk. Good summaries by Mick and Chris. There’s also a very nice article in eWeek
(not the one linked to from the Labs site) entitled Microsoft’s BizTalk Services Simplify SOA that talks about the strategic important of these software services.

While intellectually interesting to me, I’m hard-pressed at the moment to see a use case within my organization itself. Steve Martin of the BizTalk team has a good write up and hits the target audience: We see BizTalk Services as a complement to “traditional” BizTalk Server uses on premise. As you need to coordinate SOA on a broader scale beyond the organization, we see the introduction of hosted services as one way to help support federation of business process, messaging, and identity across boundaries.

Well said.
