Biztalk Next or ‘Oslo’ details coming soon

badarrow Barbara Darrow Profile: badarrow

Microsoft is getting ready to talk about BizTalk Server Next.

The product-to-be, code-named Oslo, won’t be out any time soon-sources said to look at 2009 or 2010.  The current iteration , BizTalk Server 2007 R2, which added EDI and RFID support, just shipped. 

BizTalk is Microsoft’s take on Enterprise Application Integration,. And, it is being positioned as a key component–along with SQL Server and Visual Studio–of the company’s overall application development platform. Visual Studio 2008 is due perhaps late this year but more likely early next. , SQL Server 2008  has been promised for delivery in the second quarter of CY 2008.

Microsoft’s BizTalk group has already parsed out  some component services and offered them as such. But the company has also said these services will not supplant the  BizTalk server SKU itself.
