  • Performance in May

    Performance has been  one of the more popular topics at the Swedish BizTalk user group, where we’ve had both Darren Jefford and Paolo Salvatori as previous speakers. This event is of a more practical and detailed level, and covers performance considerations from both a setup/configuration perspective as well as from a developer perspective.

    BizTalk Server Performance: Best practice

    Session #1 – Instrument your BizTalk ServerOptimizing and verifying your BizTalk Server installation is not an easy thing to do. The documentation is good but very extensive. This presentation aims to guide you through the most important operations you need to do in order to boost the performance of BizTalk. Session #2 - Performance Optimization PatternsThis session will present architectural, design, and development patterns to improve BizTalk processing performance. "Performance" can be expressed by latency and/or throughput, and this session will cover aspects of both. This will include pipeline and orchestration patterns to increase throughput, reduce latency, and reduce memory usage during BizTalk processing. We will also cover the results from BizTalk CAT recent Perf engagements.
