BizTalk Server 2016 key features (planned)
The reason BizTalk 2016 is moved till Q4 of 2016 is mainly due to the dependency on Windows and SQL Server. As soon Windows Server 2016, SQL Server 2016 is shipped you’ll see BizTalk Server 2016.
Here are the key features announced on the road map.
- Platform alignment – SQL 2016, Windows Server 2016, Office 2016 and latest release of Visual Studio.
- BizTalk support for SQL 2016 AlwaysOn Availability Groups both on-premises and in Azure IaaS to provide high availability (HA).
- HA production workloads supported in Azure IaaS.
- Tighter integration between BizTalk Server and API connectors to enable BizTalk Server to consume our cloud connectors such as SalesForce.Com and O365 more easily.
