Concepts in BizTalk Services B2B

B2B in BizTalk Services is all about processing EDI and non-EDI messages between trading partners. It is meant to make B2B integration simple, powerful, and flexible using Azure. B2B, by its nature of protocols, formats, and transport, tends to be complex in configuration; with Azure, service configuration of an agreement between partners is simple. It's easy to extend the service and connect with other technologies such as SharePoint and mobile services to build a rich and powerful solution.

The top-level concepts in B2B/EDI include the following:

  • EDI message structure
  • Partners and agreements
  • Property promotion in EDI
  • Batching
  • Tracking and archiving
  • Extensibility and object model API
