Book Review: Migrating to BizTalk Server 2020

Review of the Book, Migrating to BizTalk Server 2020

This book is written by Sandro Pereira, Tom Canter and Lex Hegt, all well known people in the BizTalk sphere. After the dedication about the Authors the introduction starts with an interesting brief history of the various BizTalk Server and then dives straight into what this book is for and what it covers, which unsurprisingly is about how to migrate from earlier version of BizTalk to the latest version Microsoft BizTalk Server 2020. And that is just the introduction.

The next chapters give an Overview of BizTalk Server 2020, what might be some of the reasons why you would want to upgrade; what you need to do to prepare for the migration; the options of doing an in-place upgrade (but also covers why you shouldn’t do this); migrating in a side by side way; and also looks at the option of migrating to Azure. Lastly it has an Appendix that list the BizTalk Dependencies their EOL (End Of Life), which can be one of the justifications you need for an upgrade.

All in all a very comprehensive book and something that you should read if you do have some older BizTalk environments that you are planning to migrate away from. As I’m currently in the midst of a project to migrate of both BizTalk 2010 and BizTalk 2016 to BizTalk 2020, this book has already proven valuable.

SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2013 and Microsoft Azure – Second Edition

Connected Pawns

I am pleased to announce “SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2013 and Microsoft Azure – Second Edition” by Mark Brimble, Johann Cooper, Coen Dijgraaf and Mahindra Morar can now be purchased on the Amazon or from Packt. This is based on the first edition written by by Richard Seroter. Johann has given a nice preview of the book here.

This is the first book I have co-authored and I can now tick that off on my bucket list. It was an experience to work with such talented co-authors and I was continually amazed how they rose to the occasion. I agree with Johann’s statement about being privileged to write the second edition of what was the first BizTalk book I ever owned.

As I updated chapters I was continually struck by how little had changed. We added new chapters, Chapter 4, Chapter 5, and Chapter 6…

Close to a year ago myself and my colleagues Mark, Mahindra, and Colin were approached by Packt Publishing to update Richard Seroter’sSOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2009” book for BizTalk Server 2013.  We considered this a great honour seeing as the base material in the first edition was so good, and decided to take on the project.

So what will you find in this edition of the book?
