This paper is intended for architects, consultants, developers, and knowledge workers who know about Microsoft BizTalk Server and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, but would like to learn about the benefits of integrating these two great Microsoft products.

The content is based on the latest version of each Microsoft product, including:

  • SharePoint 2007

  • Windows Server 2008

  • SQL Server 2008

Microsoft BizTalk Server is a product used by more than 8000 companies worldwide for addressing various application and business partner integration needs. It is a well known product for building service oriented architecture (SOA).

SharePoint 2007 – Microsoft’s fastest growing product – is well known for its document management, collaboration, workflow, portal, and search capabilities. The integration of the two products actually brings a whole new set of capabilities to end users. SharePoint 2007 gives BizTalk Server a “face,” providing human workflow features and dashboard functionality.

This paper describes the results you can achieve by combining the two products, and includes best practices for setting up an architecture with them.
