The seventh major release of BizTalk has been released to manufacturing and becomes available to customers October 1. BizTalk Server 2010 includes new support for Windows Server AppFabric to provide pre-integrated support for developing new composite applications.
Customers maximize the value of existing Line of Business (LOB) systems by integrating and automating their business processes, and putting real-time, end-to-end enterprise integration within reach of every customer.
The new BizTalk Server 2010 release enables businesses to:
Maximize existing investments by using pre-integrated BizTalk Server 2010 support with both Windows Server AppFabric and SharePoint Server 2010 to enable new composite application scenarios;
Further reduce total cost of ownership and enhance performance for large and mission-critical deployments through a new pre-defined dashboard that enables efficient performance tuning and streamlining deployments across environments, along with pre-integration with System Center;
Efficient B2B integration with highly-scalable Trading Partner Management and advanced capabilities for complex data mapping.
BizTalk Server 2010 also delivers updated platform support for Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008 R2, .NET Framework 4 and Visual Studio 2010.
