BizTalk, Microsoft's strategic e-Commerce initiative, enables companies and industries to develop and evolve sophisticated e-marketplaces far more easily than ever before. In this authoritative book, renowned e-business consultant James Kobielus walks you through every issue associated with BizTalk deployment -- business and technical. He introduces the fundamentals of BizTalk: what it is, who supports and oversees it, the value it adds to B2B e-Commerce, and the current status of BizTalk-compliant products and services. Next, he reviews anticipated BizTalk applications in B2B e-Commerce to be based on Microsoft's BizTalk Server 2000. BizTalk: Implementing Business-to-Business E-Commerce outlines three common BizTalk scenarios: hubbed marketplace integration that integrates your internal business processes indirectly, via external trading hubs and exchanges; extranet supply-chain integration that your internal business processes directly, with trading partners; and enterprise application integration: integrating internal "back end" business applications with your e-Commerce site.
The book reviews commercial BizTalk-enabled products and services, and Microsoft's strategy for rolling out BizTalk-enabled offerings both as server-based software and as portal-based services. It introduces Microsoft's BizTalk Server 2000 product roadmap; shows how BizTalk Server integrates with Windows 2000, Active Directory and COM+; and demonstrates how it utilizes XML technologies, including XSLT, XML schemas, and namespaces.
