  • Session name: API Management: Best Practices, Tips and Tricks.
  • Abstract: Unleash the full potential of Azure API Management with this session focused on efficient integration building. Discover tips and tricks that empower developers to be more productive while adhering to best practices, resulting in reliable and effective integrations.

Join me at BizTalk to Azure -The Migration Journey event | September 28, 2023 | Gothenburg, Sweden

Join me at BizTalk to Azure -The Migration Journey event | September 28, 2023 | Gothenburg, Sweden

I’m thrilled to be back doing a presential event after INTEGRATE 2023! And I’m excited to return to Gothenburg and Sweden after seven years! It has been so long! The last time I was in Sweden was in 2016 when I presented at BizTalk User Group Sweden in Stockholm and Gothenburg.

This time, I was invited by Contica to present at their event: BizTalk to Azure -The Migration Journey. In fact, my presence should have happened last year, but for personal reasons, I had to cancel my trip. But I promised that I would come back, and here it is! And to make up for it, in double dose! I will be delivering not one but two talks:

  • 1: Elevating Integration – The Roadmap from BizTalk Server: If you are embracing the journey to move your current BizTalk Server environment to the cloud, in this session, we’ll guide you through the steps, strategies, and best practices needed to successfully transition your integration solutions to the cloud. What phases in your migration journey are crucial? Which tools and technologies should you use? After this session, you’ll know about the dos and don’ts, as well as the key considerations that will empower the agility and scalability of Azure Integration Services. Join us to unlock the potential of Azure’s cloud-native services and streamline your integration landscape.
  • 2: Azure Integration in Action – BizTalk to Azure Transition Case Studies: Join us for an engaging session where we bring Azure Integration Services to life through simple real-world case samples. Through these exercises, you’ll gain practical insights, strategies, and tips to ensure a smooth BizTalk Server migration while embracing Azure’s agility, scalability, and cost-efficiency. Take advantage of this opportunity to see Azure Integration Services in action, guiding your path toward a seamless and future-ready integration landscape.

The event will take place on September 28, 2023, between 5 PM – 9 PM (local time) at Contica, floor 9
Masthamnsgatan 1, Göteborg, Sweden.

Simon Stender will join me at this event to deliver a session about Design and Infrastructure in Azure: Shaping Robust Infrastructure.
