Real Word Business Activity Monitoring
Business Activity Monitoring is probably the most powerful feature in the BizTalk solution stack and it is also the least utilized. In concept BAM offers us the ability to offer visibility, audit, tracking, and alerts all without changing our solutions or writing custom code. The reality is BAM has a learning curve that requires both understanding the implementation details and rethinking your approach to integration solutions to focus on business process / flow rather than technical integration. This session will walk through an advanced real world BAM implementation in the EDI space (purchase order, invoice, ship notice) focusing on a diverse but related series of steps in a long running business process to create a true business level view of several disparate integrations. Features covered will include creating tracking activities and views, progress and dimensions, continuations etc.
