Recently I announced that I had the honor 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 documentation is intended for 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, making some hybrid solutions and helping them with this process.

Now I had, once again, the honor of being invited a few weeks ago by my friend – and now Microsoft Principal Product Manager – Azure Logic Apps – Kent Weare to record a special episode on BizTalk Server to Azure Integration Services – Ask the Experts on his YouTube channel.

In this episode, we are going to discuss some important questions and concerns customers may have on this journey to migrate their BizTalk Server Solutions to Azure, like:

  • What are some examples of BizTalk migrations that I have been involved in? What is the biggest driver for these customers?
  • If I’m helping a customer migrate, what advice would I provide to the customer?
  • When considering BizTalk architectures, what is an anti-pattern or something that customers should avoid/re-think as they move to Azure?
  • And many other questions.

You can see the full episode here:

I hope you enjoy and find this topic interesting. Let me know what you think.
