Connecting Microsoft BizTalk Server to IBM Mainframe Transaction Processing and Data Storage Systems
Most enterprise organizations rely on legacy mainframe, UNIX and Linux systems to run mission-critical workloads that support daily operations. Commonly, these heritage systems run a variety of IBM system and application software, IBM server technologies and tools that form the base of enterprise IT investments. A significant challenge to enterprise IT organizations is the need to continually re-invest in these heritage platforms, to extend these systems to new workloads, including: service-enablement, on-line transactions, messaging interchange, business intelligence, workflow and collaboration. In this session, we discuss BizTalk host integration technologies, tools, and best practices that allow you to connect BizTalk to existing line-of-business programs and data, preserving the integrity and performance of vital line-of-business systems, while extending those investments to new solutions.
