Those who thought that BizTalk is dead are completely wrong. Every 2 to 3 years, Microsoft is releasing a fresh new release of BizTalk and Host Integration Server (HIS). Last year at the Integrate Event 2015 in London, the new releases have been announced and now you have the possibility to test out an early preview of both products. HIS (Host Integration Server) is part of BizTalk Server, which are “THE” Microsoft Integration Stack. At this stage, YOU have the possibility to test out the preview and give feedback to the Microsoft Product Team.
