If you check out http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/f/2/5f224fcf-2ed2-4d29-814c-d3baac20d430/ARC305.ppt#276,1,ESB’s Using Microsoft Technology

you can see the presentation from Microsoft.

It seems that they may be less open to other technologies than the coverage suggests.

Yes - you can use IBM's WebSphere-MQ, but apart from that BizTalk seems to be touted as the ESB.

Recognising the reality that WebSphere-MQ is not going to ripped out is progress, but hardly earth shattering!


Ronan, I can barely call this a strategy, to me it looks more like a tactical move because MSFT is finally aware that others are making money with ESBs. I liked their original strategy for ESBs (not jumping the ESB bandwagon), but I am somewhat surprised by their recent move
