BizTalk Hyper Connection - VPN Alternative

What do you like best?

You can easily connect one service (even one port) of on-premise server with Cloud Azure infrastructure using Hyper Connection feature. It is easy to setup on cloud side ( e.g. it is only few clicks in Web Apps to get this ready) and just one click on on premise host to commit process

What do you dislike?

BizTalk service is available on old Azure portal only, so there are some issues if you are using Role Based Access model. There Powershell Module is not available in Gallery and related SDK, that should include it doesn't work with new versions of Visual Studio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can use this approach if fast and easy to configure solution is needed

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With BizTalk Hyper Connections feature we have connected on-premise server with cloud infrastructure in secure way, so some kind of hybrid solution.

BizTalk Services - robust app integration

What do you like best?

The ability to offer customers a way to bridge the gap between their legacy business applications and applications leveraging cloud deployment models. As a service provider we need to support customers who have hybrid IT deployments and BizTalk enables us to give them the best of both worlds.

What do you dislike?

Creating this type of integration is still a fairly complex process/project. It's not necessarily the right solution for every customer we service and there are other, perhaps more fully developed, solutions available on the marketplace.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The primary problem solved is how do we share information from our back-end ERP system to Line of Business Applications we have in the cloud and vice versa. So many companies are making a gradual, in some cases not so gradual, transition to the cloud in multiple areas and maintaining some level of integration is key to the success of that transition.

What iPaaS solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Windows Azure is very seamless for .NET projects

What do you like best?

The ease of deployment of .NET projects to Azure is incredible. The system truly was built with the .NET ecosystem in mind. Integration with Visual Studio is wonderful, and managing the deployment lifecycle through Microsoft's ecosystem is often very seamless. In particular, the ability to configure and monitor auto-scaling options to allow for cost savings and confidence in production systems is a huge benefit over other platforms.

What do you dislike?

Windows Azure's reliability can go in waves. After a year and a half of using Cloud Services, we have seen periods of downtime that were often inexplicable. Typically, services would come back up as inexplicably as they went down. Nonetheless, these issues are few and far between, and Azure's customer support team has always been very responsive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read the documentation before writing any code. It's often confusing, but building things right the first time around can be a huge time-saver later on.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our original decision to use Azure was its seamless integration into the .NET ecosystem. We have several Windows Servers deployed through Cloud Services, and they all access a common back-end built on Azure Tables, Queues, and Caches. Because the SDK is easy to work with, linking all of those backend components together is easy. It's simple and straightforward to get up to speed, and everything is managed through one portal.

following this product and performing POC's

What do you like best?

Microsoft is investing heavily on this product to evolve as good IPASS platform. I like the EDI features that are supported in Azure Biztalk Services. Migration tools are readily available to convert on premise EDI interfaces as cloud based solutions.

What do you dislike?

It would be great if connectors are also supported to connect to few SAAS apps like Salesforce or Marketo etc. Currently connections are supported via Web services or Service Bus.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently doing POC's to better understand supported features and reliability. EDI in cloud is biggest benefit. New EDI solutions can be built in days even for enterprise requirements.

Nice product

What do you like best?

Windows Azure BizTalk Services provides nice integration capabilities for the Windows Azure Platform to extend on-premises applications to the cloud, provides very good messaging endpoints on the cloud to process and transform the messages, enables business-to-business messaging, and helps organizations integrate with disparate applications, both on cloud and on-premises. BizTalk Services provides common integration capabilities (e.g. bridges, transforms, B2B messaging) on Windows Azure.

What do you dislike?

Cost is the big problem. Need range of products. Need to add more platform and tools for app model..

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is definitely very good technology if you want to transform to app model and want to reduce scalability and performance costs..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to reduce scalability , performance, hardware and maintenance cost . It is really great product.

What do you like best?

I love the edi and eai capabilities. Love the fact that it integrates well with the local services that may be available.

What do you dislike?

Needs to become feature rich. Does not seem fully baked.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is not a replacement for BizTalk on premise by any means. It is an offering that was missing from BizTalk on premise. A lot of times WABS can hold its own grounds very well. A lot of times it succeeds with BizTalk on premise.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Edi integrations.
