I was honored to be invited by the Microsoft Logic App product group to contribute to the BizTalk Server Migration to Azure Integration Services Architecture Guidance documentation alongside my fellow MVPs: Michael Stephenson and Stephen W Thomas. 

This guideline is focused on clients considering or having already decided to move their entire BizTalk Server on-premises integration solution to Azure or parts of the solution into Azure, therefore, making some hybrid solutions. Of course, in this process, many questions about best practices to use, what services to use, and others will be raised.

This guide provides an overview of the reasons and benefits, product comparisons, capabilities, and other information to help you start migrating from on-premises BizTalk Server solutions to cloud-based Azure Integration Services. Following this guide, you’ll find more guides that cover how to choose the services that best fit your scenario, along with migration strategies, planning considerations, and best practices to help you deliver successful results:

This is a simple feature matchup diagram that you will find in the guide:
