2.13. Summary

In this chapter, we have highlighted, with the use of a fictional integration scenario, how complex it can be to create a solution without BizTalk and, conversely, how the same solution can more easily be created using BizTalk. Although this scenario was contrived, it highlights the things you should consider when architecting your solution and deciding whether to use BizTalk.

The chapter then walked you through the key architectural pieces of BizTalk to explain how everything fits together, setting the scene for the rest of the book. The next chapter covers BizTalk adapters, detailing the fundamental concepts and the various adapters available in the box.
