Data administration of Business Rules Providing A Great Connected Systems Experience

Until recently, data administration in Product Activation systems was a time-consuming, manual process which would take weeks to complete not to mention the development and test resources required to configure the data. The MSIT Product Activation systems team built a solution with innovative use of Microsoft technologies which not only automates the manual processes but also provides quality checks to ensure accuracy and agility.

Managing the Calendaring and Collaboration Process By Using Exchange Server 2007 Web Services

Developers for event scheduling and recruiting applications found that using Exchange Server Web Services helped them to create leaner and more robust application code, and to enhance calendaring and collaboration functionality while reducing development time for the internal line-of-business (LOB) applications. The new applications are easier to maintain because they are based upon Exchange Web Services, rather than custom code.

The application development time was reduced by 6 months and this time saving can directly be attributed to the team using BizTalk server and RosettaNet technologies over traditional EDI methods.
