Demystifying BizTalk Business Activity Monitoring

What is Business Activity Monitoring?

The concept of Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) is by no means new and has existed for a number of years. It was originally coined by Gartner analysts and refers to the aggregation, analysis, and presentation of real-time metrics about business activities in an organisation.

A business activity can either be a business process that is managed by some middleware platform, like BizTalk Server, or a composite process that spans multiple different systems, applications and even technology platforms.

BAM is a solution primarily intended to provide a real-time summary of these business activities.
BizTalk Business Activity Monitoring is an often misunderstood and underutilised feature that comes out of the box with BizTalk Server.

Tomorrow evening at the Auckland Connected Systems User Group I will be walking through the basics of BAM, its uses and capabilities, and see how to utilise it to monitor, capture and analyse business data, in real-time, from your disparate suite of enterprise applications. If you’re in the vicinity and keen to find out more about Business Activity Monitoring, register and come along. If not, watch this space (and our Events listings) for future sessions on this subject and lots more.
