Session Title: Exposing Operational data to Mobile devices using Windows Azure
Session Abstract: In this session Kent will take a real world business scenario from the Power Generation industry. The scenario involves real time data collection, power generation commitments made to market stakeholders and current energy prices. A Power Generation company needs to monitor all of these data points to ensure it is maintaining its commitments to the marketplace. When things do not go as planned, there are often significant penalties at stake. Having real time visibility into these business measures and being notified when the business becomes non-compliant becomes extremely important.
Learn how Windows Azure and many of its building blocks (Azure Service Bus, Azure Mobile Services) and BizTalk Server can address these requirements and provide Operations people with real time visibility into the state of their business processes.

Session Title: Manageability of Windows Azure BizTalk Services
Session Abstract: One of the new services on the Windows Azure Cloud platform is BizTalk Services. A service that offers integration and EDI capabilities in the cloud. An important aspect of any cloud service is the manageability aspect. In this session the focus lies on this aspect for the BizTalk Services. How does one manage a BizTalk Services solution, what are the tools and resources in Azure to leverage to get a good overview of the BizTalk Service and it’s solutions. Those questions will be answered in this session and the attendees will learn more about the management side of Windows Azure BizTalk Services.

Session Title: Windows Azure BizTalk Services - Business Activity Monitoring
Session Abstract: One of the features which is currently not available with the current release of Windows Azure BizTalk Services is Business Activity Monitoring. Business Activity Monitoring or BAM in short, was first introduced with the release of BizTalk Server 2004 and has been available in every subsequent BizTalk Server release. BAM in short enables you to capture metrics about your Business Processes and subsequently enabling the business to perform all kind, including near real time, analysis on the captured data. Although the current release of Windows Azure BizTalk Services does not include a cloud implementation of BAM it was made clear during the Microsoft Integration Summit in November of 2013 that Microsoft is heavily investing into adding BPM capabilities including rich BAM capabilities to a future release of Windows Azure BizTalk Services.
This being said it does not prevent you of adding BAM functionality in your current Windows Azure BizTalk Service solutions. As a matter of fact with the extensibility points which are currently available in Windows Azure BizTalk Services one can for example extend a bridge by implementing a message inspector which leverages both a message payload as its context properties to capture BAM metrics and send them downstream for actual processing.
