Getting maximum value from LOB assets often requires integrating them with other systems in your enterprise, your partners’ enterprises, and/or the cloud. Building integration solutions from scratch can be a difficult task, while traditional EAI platforms can be costly investments. With Microsoft Azure you can build hybrid solutions that keep your essential LOB assets on premise while moving specialized functionality to the cloud to take advantage of high capacity, scalability and availability. At the same time, Azure provides a rich and growing assortment of services to connect with partners and SaaS suppliers.

But where to begin? This session will demonstrate creating secure, reliable integration workflows using publically available Azure services including Service Bus, Cloud Services and Azure BizTalk Service. Starting from a completely on premise scenario, we will proceed step by step to integrate a hypothetical LOB system with messaging, computing and storage services in the cloud. We’ll demonstrate best practices for development, testing and deployment, as well as managing costs and monitoring results. Whatever your level of cloud experience, we hope you’ll come away with solid ideas for using the cloud to get more value from your technology investments.

Richard Broida is the Connected Systems Practice Director at Bennett Adelson. A member of Microsoft’s Azure V-TSP program, Richard has helped clients build integration solutions in a variety of industries including manufacturing, healthcare, retail and finance.
