Under the Influence of Integration Technologies Joe Klug

Over the last six months, my Chief Architect Jesus Rodriguez and myself spent our spare time writing a  new whitepaper that focuses on the more advanced  aspects of BizTalk's Business Activity Monitoring.  The end result is over 80 pages of exciting details all about BAM!  This paper is available for download and online in the MSDN Library.

The paper goes beyond the basic of BAM and explores its architecture and extensibility model. It also details the intricacies of the WCF, WF and BizTalk Server BAM infrastructures and programming models. Additionally, we've dedicated an entire section to the Business Intelligence (BI) aspects of BAM and its integration with technologies such as SharePoint Server, PerformancePoint Server, Analysis Services and Reporting Services. Finally, we explore some techniques for building a BAM RESTful API using WCF 3.5 and the Atom Publishing Protocol to expose some of the BAM capabilities as resources accessible through a simple HTTP/Atom interface. I credit Jesus and Jon Flanders for this idea.

Finally, a big thank-you to Ofer Askhenazi whose support and patience made this paper possible.  We'd also like to thank our technical reviewers Marcel Fernee, Stephen Kaufman, Jonathan Moons, Allan Naim, Paolo Salvatori, Mr. BAM Andy Shen and Brian Loesgen, and of course Tellago's very own - Elizabeth Redding.

Jesus and I also developed a series of hands-on-labs based on the examples in this whitepaper.  Stay tuned for more information on when and where you can access them!
