With the introduction of BizTalk Server in 2000, Microsoft sparked a revolution in the integration industry proving that integration and process automation technology didnâ€™t have to be prohibitively expensive or hard to use. Today, over 7,000 organizations rely on BizTalk Server to integrate systems and automate processes across global supply chains. With the introduction of the fifth full version, BizTalk Server 2006 R2 builds upon the Business Process Management and SOA/ESB capabilities in prior releases to help organizations extend core process management technologies even further with new capabilities like native support for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), AS2 and RFID, and close alignment with the upcoming releases of 2007 Microsoft Office system and Windows Vista, including key .NET Framework technologies such as Windows Workflow Foundation and Windows Communication Foundation.
BizTalk Server 2006 R2 puts real-time, end to end supply chain management within reach of every customer, spanning systems, people and processes, both within and across organizational boundaries. BizTalk Server 2006 R2 empowers customers to make informed business decisions with real-time data from geographically dispersed, yet integrated systems â€“ putting you one step ahead of the competition. All this coupled with the confidence of an enterprise class infrastructure, regardless of your company size. Your Business, Connected.
