Your good connection ... to the future

Competitive advantage of hybrid connectivity

All integration capabilities united on a single strategic platform

In our networked world, connectivity has become a decisive competitive advantage.
It decides

  • how many points of contact I have to my customers
  • how efficiently I can convert these into business transactions 
  • how exact my information is about this.

And if this is increasingly taking place in the cloud, then integration has to go there too.

Successful companies therefore use a strategic integration platform
to create the conditions for the digital transformation of tomorrow.


By 2022, 65% of large companies will have implemented a hybrid integration platform.

Advantage of the platform strategy

Hybrid integration with the Microsoft integration platform

Microsoft offers the complete strategic basic technology for your company-specific hybrid integration platform: the hybrid Microsoft integration platform.


BizTalk Server and Azure Integration Services

Core components of the hybrid Microsoft integration platform

While deep integration into important applications of an enterprise (enterprise application integration) will always remain an important factor, a new area is becoming increasingly important: the board, lightweight integration of a large number of endpoints outside the core systems of the enterprise (modern integration).  The challenge is to use both and to be able to combine them together seamlessly on a single platform.

With BizTalk Server and Azure Integration Services, Microsoft offers a complete platform.

  • BizTalk Server: The leading enterprise integration server – now also available in the cloud
  • Azure Integration Services: All the components you need for modern integration in and with the cloud
    • Logic Apps
    • API Management
    • Service Bus 
    • Event Grid

Modular structure and seamless interplay

All integration capabilities on one platform for needs-based, Custom solutions

Since the first version released in 2000, Microsoft has been developing the BizTalk Server continuously to become the high-performance, central integration component in the Microsoft platform. With an installed basis of over 13,000 customers in all sectors and company sizes, the BizTalk Server is today the most widespread integration service on the market. Due to its large scope of features and its attractive price/performance ratio, Gartner has designated the BizTalk Server as the value leader among integration servers.

Areas of application

One for all: With BizTalk Server you can cover all the areas in which businesses of today have a need for integration with a single tool

  • ESB – Enterprise Service Bus solutions
    ESB solutions are used for a fast, simple, dynamically self-adapting (and thus referred to as lightweight) exchange of data between a wide variety of systems on the basis of a service-oriented architecture – the focus here being on speed: How easily can the connection be made? How quickly can the data be sent?
  • EAI – Enterprise Application Integration solutions
    EAI solutions are used to map business processes in all complexities and depths imaginable. The focus here is on workflow control according to individual requirements of any desired complexity: Where does data collect, where and when? Who needs this data in which form? How must the data be enriched, etc.? 
  • EDI – Electronic Data Interchange
    EDI solutions are used to exchange data, usually business documents like orders, delivery notes, invoices, but also master data, with business partners using standards such as EDIFACT/X12, VDA etc.

Function modules

BizTalk Server has all the essential components for setting up an integration solution:

  • Messaging Engine
    for mapping the complete message processing,
  • Orchestration Engine
    for executing flexibly designable business processes,
  • B2B integration
    for the individually configured EDI connection of business and trade partners,
  • Business rules
    for assigning business rules for the flexible control of processes,
  • Business Activity Monitoring (BAM)
    for logging relevant technical and functional data to be determined and provided quickly and reliably and
  • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
