Teched Australia 2006 Recap - Business Process and Integration Landscape

I thought I’d take some time to capture some of my thoughts for each of the sessions I was lucky enough to be involved in this year.

This was my third session at Teched and was very fortunate to have Paul Woods from Data#3 and Steve Maw from Formfill with me on this session. My main objective for this session was really to get Paul and Steve an opportunity to present how they used BizTalk in context of;

(a) How a partner has built a process centric BizTalk solution for their client

(b) How an ISV has used BizTalk as an enabling technology for their market leading application called FlowTalk.

Each of these solutions use BizTalk to manage highly complex business process scenarios. It’s not about core messaging, that’s a means to an end. Where you start getting real success is modelling processes and providing visibility layers on top of those processes.

This was a great session, and although it was a level 100 session was very well received. There were plenty of questions and feedback afterwards so thanks to everyone who attended. There was about 50 of you present, but we only received 4 official evaluations. If you have any other feedback, please let me know! Many after the session commented on how they got perspectives on how not only BizTalk was being used to solve requirements but the MS stack working together.

The overall scores were;
