A co-worker of mine, Vishal, has posted on GotDotNet a new utility which enables customers to take the archives of their tracking database and stitch them together into a single, large database.

This can be a very usefull tool when used in association with the Archiving and Purging features of BizTalk 2006 which will also be available in BizTalk 2004 SP2. Now you can schedule regular archiving of your tracking database and then reconstruct one single database against which you can mine your data. Thanks to Vishal for putting together this tool for everyone.

 

For those of you heading to Boston for Tech-ed, drop by the Connected Systems area and say hi. I will be there all week and am doing a co-presentation on Wednesday (my bit is on performance) and have a chalk-talk on Tuesday on Ordered Delivery. Hope to see a lot of you there.
