  4. 4. Microsoft BPM History  BizTalk 2000 – Microsoft response to the middleware market craze and web service emergence.  BizTalk 2002 – minor upgrade on BizTalk 2000  BizTalk 2004 – migration to the .NET framework. First BPM concepts such as BAM and non-sequential workflow (Human Workflow) even though extremely unbaked.  BizTalk 2006 - Microsoft release BizTalk 2006 with minor tuning intended to migration towards SQL 2005, Visual Studio 2005 and .NET 2.0 and in Mid 2007 they release BTS 06 R2.  2006 – Microsoft finally recognizes the importance of BPM – the first time Microsoft website makes a reference of the word BPM and late that year the first BizTalk BPM Conference

  6. 6. Cost For a regular enterprise deployment, fail-over safe (2 of each with exception of SCOM), we estimate that you will need  10 servers (a 10 blade rack) - $100K  SAN - $50K  Software: SQL – 2x$25K, BTS – 2x$25K, MOSS (depends on the number of CLAs), SCOM (depends on the number of machines) = $250K ++  Maintenance/year = 20% = $50K  Microsoft Premier Support = $100K/y  Initial Cost = $500K  Cost per Year = $150K

  8. 8. The Microsoft-BPM Future! Microsoft is trying to close the gap between the BPM and the SOA approaches and has released the Windows Workflow Foundation with .NET 3.0. WF is a programming model, engine and tools for quickly building workflow enabled applications on Windows. It consists of a WinFX namespace, an in-process workflow engine, and designers for Visual Studio 2005. Includes support for both sequential workflow and human workflow. BizTalk 2008 will be re-written to use the new WF framework.
  9. 9. Summary  The Microsoft BPM Platform is slowly taking shape and it is still suffering from a certain lack of clear direction by some of the server Teams – ASP and InfoPath are a clear example.  In its full configuration, it is difficult to configure specially when MOSS is public facing.  Microsoft arrived to BPM world via the SOA orchestration (XLANG). Their technical staff is for the most part not aware of TRUE business process oriented development.  Microsoft is investing on spreading the gospel of BPM across its user community with the BizTalk-BPM conferences.
