A colleague of mine claims that the
Biztalk product has no road map. and probably end of life is in the horizon.
Sound to me like a spin of competitors.
Are you familiar with such rumor.
Me too received such a message and i came to know through one of my friend that BizTalk gonna to be a subset for a new product that microsoft is planning.
It can't be like for sure....
The roadmap for BizTalk Server 2010 R2 is here:
"Google skills are more important than your coding skills."
I think its just a rumor. This product is here to stay as there is no other product from Microsoft stack providing such capabilities like ESB, Publish/Subscribe model,MsgBox, BAM Tracking and now even Sharepoint Workflows/WCF are supported so what are you seeing now is just a way to talk to other Microsoft products to leverage on features of other Microsoft products.
