We've officially launched a new website dedicated to providing invaluable information around building Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Business Process Management (BPM) solutions using the Microsoft platform.  As a part of this site, we've released our latest roadmap and product strategy around the next generation of Microsoft SOA-based technologies, codenamed "Oslo", to included updated messaging and workflow technologies in BizTalk Server and other products starting in 2009.

The "Olso" vision will leverage the next version of BizTalk Server as it's primary delivery vehicle for delivering a superior SOA infrastructure, but that's not all.  "Olso" will also feature updates to the Visual Studio development environment and the System Center line of systems management products as well as provide the appropriate infrastructure support to support business-to-business composite applications.

This is going to be an exciting ride in the world of SOA, and Microsoft will be right there in the mix!
