Talking the Biz

The latest version of BizTalk Server (one of the more creatively named Microsoft products) is now out and includes a few new features and a heckuva lot more advice.

BizTalk is Microsoft's main SOA play, as it connects up applications to each other and ties them to mainframe and other high-end resources.

The new rev, BizTalk Server 2006 R2, talks to RFID and -- in a future update -- will deal with more third-party apps (always a good thing).

What I find most interesting is Enterprise Service Bus Guidance, which gives architectural advice to BizTalk customers and interested SOA parties.
